According to legend: In late August of 2004, a strange light tore through the northwestern sky and hit ground in the Nevada desert with a vengeance. The light - an asteroid, known as B-3 – had fallen smack-dab into the middle of a long-held human ritual, known as Burning Man. This astronomical event unleashed a wild spirit into the midst of the annual festival, and would forever change the fate of one man…

The next day, Dylan Connor, a Latin teacher and musician from Berkeley, CA, was standing among his good friends of the Breakaway Republic - the name of their camp at the festival that year. As the story goes, the spirit fell upon Connor’s own, and suddenly he felt compelled to enter the annual “strip contest”, taking it all off to Prince’s Sexy MF, in front of hundreds of onlookers (…. he won first prize…). From this moment on, guided by a new purpose and zeal, Connor spent the rest of his time at Burning Man wandering the exotic streets with a guitar and singing songs for anyone who needed the gift of music. And thus was the transformation into Connor’s musical fate, and subsequently his forthcoming album (appropriately) entitled, “Breakaway Republic.”

Rewind>> At age seven, Connor started knocking out Elvis-style songs on a plastic Dukes of Hazard guitar. Age twelve: Connor's parents bought him a Tascam Porta One 4-track and a Peavey Bandit 75 solid-state amp. It was these tools that facilitated a catalogue of (self-proclaimed) Kiss rip-off tracks. When he came upon fifteen, Connor’s band won the Battle of The Bands by playing all Spinal Tap songs and one original.
