Why the buzz?
In 2017 Luna Li won the SOCAN Foundation Award for Young Canadian Songwriters with her single “Star Stuff.” She has also graced the stages of Canadian Music Week and NXNE, and has gone on to be an opening tour act for Japanese Breakfast. Throughout the pandemic, Luna Li began to rise in viral fame on TikTok for her “jam” loops, eventually culminating into her ‘Jams EP.’ Now, on her debut headlining tour and in celebration of the release of her album, ‘Duality,’ which received attention from NPR, Pitchfork, and more, Luna Li brings her trippy and dreamy sound to the Axis Club on April 29th for a show that is not to be missed.
