L CON is the solo project of songwriter and sonic adventurer Lisa Conway. A “producer who is gleefully unafraid of experimentation” (UPROXX), Lisa has collaborated with filmmakers, dancers, and performance artists, been nominated for a SOCAN Songwriting Prize, and completed creative residencies from New Brunswick, Canada, to Aubagne, France. An alumni of the Canadian Film Centre’s Slaight Music Residency, and one of two Canadians selected to be part of the renowned Red Bull Music Academy 2018 in Berlin, her work both in live performance and in the studio has garnered critical acclaim, drawing comparisons to Beth Gibbons, Laurie Anderson, PJ Harvey, and Bjork. Her recent album Insecurities in Being (2018), received press from The Fader, Uproxx, and Tiny Mix Tapes, and was one of Exclaim’s Top 10 Underrated Albums of 2018. Whatever EP (out October 2019) features collaborations with Casey MQ (Zaki Ibrahim, TiKa the Creator), Pursuit Grooves (who’s done remixes for Planningtorock and the Knife), Geordie Gordon (US Girls), and Evan Gordon (Islands), and string arrangements by Mika Posen (Agnes Obel, Timber Timbre).
