Growing up Korean-Canadian in Tkaronto / Toronto, Luna Li was always immersed in art. Her mom ran a music school where a collection of instruments were always within arms reach. She started her classical training on the piano before graduating to the violin. When she discovered the harp, she realised that the skills from her formal training were not only transferable but expansive. She mastered the electric guitar, then learned that adding synths and programming drum loops could unlock a new dimension to her music. An arranger at heart, Li developed a new lexicon for her instruments to communicate with each other. Honing an aptitude for experimentation, she changes her process for each song, recording her first takes and morphing her poems into lyrics. After dropping out of university after a single semester, she became a mainstay of Tkaronto / Toronto’s indie rock scene which lead to the creation of Luna Li.
