Let Love Contaminate is the latest LP release from New Orleans, LA-based artist, Conor Donohue. On his recent move to the Big Easy, which spurred the songwriting of the album, Donohue says, “These are like snapshots of my life in New Orleans….”
As far as the contaminate part goes, he says, “I moved down here, I was going through pretty hard depression and I decided to just spontaneously quit my job and slowly move from Charleston,” where he had been living for nine years.
“I didn’t really have a game plan, and I fell into this city and slowly worked my way into playing music again. I met up with some great musicians that I relied on and we had a thing for a little while. Eventually, I met somebody, fell in love and started to take care of myself a little bit better, so it’s all a part of that whole thing. Just diving deep into the city, definitely experiencing the debauchery of it and then just coming out of it and still knowing how to have fun but definitely investing in myself a little bit more as I found somebody that made me want to do that.”
This video was a long time coming, a labor of love and editing that he is excited to finally show the world. Directed and Edited by Kevin Hanley of The Business Company, it’s a rock and roll, acid-washed video to love.
