Avante Pop from Lisa Conway - hometown hero who sings, searches and finds.
LCON is the ever-evolving avant-pop project of Toronto-based sonic adventurer Lisa Conway. Her recordings have been described as "ethereal, minimalist, experimental, unnerving…and downright elegant" (AUX), with the Toronto Star claiming, "Conway is bound for greatness, even if she doesn’t realize it yet."
Raised in the mountains of Northern BC, and nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award before she was allowed to drink in bars, Lisa has been quietly writing, producing, recording, and releasing music under various monikers for over a decade - she’s collaborated with filmmakers, dancers, and performance artists, been nominated for a SOCAN Songwriting Prize (as part of Del Bel), and completed creative residencies from New Brunswick, Canada, to Aubagne, France. A recent 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. In 2013, she was granted a Canada Council of the Arts professional development grant to pursue a Masters in Sonic Arts from Queen’s University Belfast, and graduated from the program with distinction.
