Here are the best artists and bands from Connecticut. Whether you like indie rock or synthpop, there is something for everyone in Connecticut. The New England state has spawned some of the most famous bands, singers, and rappers over the last few decades, and many of them got their start playing from Hartford to Cromwell. Connecticut is particularly noteworthy for having the fourth oldest orchestra in the United States. Connecticut has produced so much talent that it is easy to see so many talented Connecticut musical artists.
John Mayer was born in Bridgeport. Before he made such hits as "Your Body Is a Wonderland" and "Waiting on the World to Change," he was just a normal kid being raised in Connecticut. Other acts that have come out of the Constitution State include Liz Phair, Moby, and MGMT. All of these artists barely scratch the surface of all the talent that has come out of the state, and no matter what genre you like most, there is an artist on this list for you. Other popular Connecticut artists include Michael Bolton, The Carpenters, Steelheart, and Fates Warning.
