Beams with L CON
As a true collective, BEAMS seven-piece ensemble’s sound brings together elements of country, bluegrass, folk, and avant garde to create music that echoes long-dead Appalachian voices while bravely injecting that spirit into 21st century pop. With the writing of co-front woman Anna Mernieks as its foundation, Beams pushes the boundaries of tradition, at the same time allowing each member space to contribute their distinctive voices toward a greater end.
L CON is the ever-evolving project of experimental songwriter + composer Lisa Conway. Lisa is a composer, artist, and musician. She holds a BFA Honours in Music from York University, and an MA in Sonic Arts from Queen’s University Belfast, where she graduated with distinction. Based in Toronto, and Grey County (two hours north of Toronto), Canada, Lisa primarily works out of her rural recording studio, The Wildlife Sanctuary, which she co-owns and operates with her partner Andrew Collins.
