Luna Li has been called the garage rock princess of Toronto (Mick Magazine), playing regularly with her band around Ontario and Quebec, at shows and festivals such as Canadian Music Week, Slut Island festival, and NXNE. In August 2017, Luna won the SOCAN Foundation Award for Young Canadian Songwriters with her single Star Stuff.
With over 14 years of classical piano and violin training, Luna brings a unique musical sensibility to the rock genre; playing both distorted guitar and violin with a looping pedal resulting in a “dreamy romp through some beautiful melodies and heartbreaking lyrics” (Deli Magazine).
Beginning in early 2015 after returning from Montreal, where she attended one semester at McGill’s music program, Luna began writing music under the name VEINS, playing live as a three-piece band. As her sound slowly evolved, the band shifted into Luna Li, a female-centric 4 piece band.
After finishing the Independent Music Production program at Seneca in April 2016, and playing shows around Ontario and Quebec over the last year, Luna has released two singles and music videos, and is set to release her debut EP in October 2017. Bringing a much-needed strong female presence to the Toronto music scene, Luna Li is unabashedly herself.
