Livy Conner at Grand Lodge

Originally from Charleston, SC, singer/songwriter Livy Conner has set up camp here in Portland. All the ingredients are there – solid, clever, and touching songwriting, a clear and beautiful voice, a passion for her art, and the joy of leading an on-stage team to deliver the goods.

I had the opportunity to meet Livy recently as she played the Garage Door at McMenamins Grand Lodge. I was immediately struck at how “together” this band was. They made everything look effortless. Free-flowing ballads never flow freely without a great deal of effort, concentration and rehearsal. With her on stage were Will McKay on Lead Guitar, Luke Smith on bass and Keegan Leonberg on drums.

Livy has released two collections of songs so far. The full album “Mind Of Your Own” in 2013, and the “Sleepy EP” in 2015. Here is one of those stunning ballads – Kind Blue Eyes.
