L Con - Whatever EP Canadian New

L CON is the solo project of songwriter and sonic adventurer Lisa Conway. A “producer who is gleefully unafraid of experimentation” (UPROXX) and “one of Canada’s best kept secrets” (EARMILK), Lisa has collaborated with filmmakers, dancers, and performance artists, been nominated for a SOCAN Music Songwriting Prize, and completed creative residencies from New Brunswick, Canada, to Aubagne, France.

A recent alumna 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. Lisa’s most 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.

New “Whatever” EP released in 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).

Rayannah (Winnipeg)
Rayannah’s voice rises in layers, creating soundscapes from scratch. The bilingual artist bends noise into music by running voice, breath, synth and percussion through loop pedals. Underscored by intricate beat-making, her visceral lyrics in French and English rise above it all, offering a glimpse into her experiences both dark and sweet.

F8-Bit - s/t Canadian


F8-BIT (pronounced fate-bit) are a cover band dedicated to classic console game themes. The quartet consists of some of Ottawa’s highest-scoring jazz players, who owe their quick fingers and epic grip strength to blistering rounds of Super Mario Kart as much as they do to music school. Expect to hear modern takes on the themes from Punchout, Super Mario World, Excite Bike, Mega Man, the Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog and many more of your favourite classic console games. F8-BIT delivers a total K.O. every time!
