Take Off Synopsis

Conor Maynard shot to fame posting cover versions of Usher, Drake and the Kings of Leon on YouTube. He soon developed a big following and his YouTube views are currently at over 150 million views with well over a million followers on twitter and 1.13 million fans on facebook. Conor's talent was quick to catch people's attention and having been spotted by international artists like Ne-Yo and Pharell Williams, he went on to record his debut album Contrast which shot straight to number one in the UK charts. Unlike many of his chart contemporaries, Conor didn't reach the charts through the X Factor, he started out making music in his bedroom and after several years of releasing tracks online he made it to the bigtime. In his autobiography, Conor Maynard shares his own honest, candid and often surprising take on his rapid rise to the top. The book offers exclusive behind the scenes access allowing you to get closer to the star than ever before. The book features hundreds of exclusive brand new and unseen photos and a collection of handwritten lyrics and notes.
