BIO EXTRACT - Connie's music...
Songwriting and Lyrics"Lim extracts her inspiration from the people around her; From Berkeley to Los Angeles, Lim has treated every place as a new opportunity to learn and grow. Her recent EP tells of how she has noticed that “we are all hunted, or the underdog, in some way or another. I sing for that side within each of us.” Connie Lim grew up shy and eccentric. She had started writing music on her piano at age 8, but didn’t gain the confidence to share her songs until much later. After one listens to The Hunted, however, one will see that Lim’s sources of inspiration are far from timid; she writes a lot of her survival of anorexia and traumatically abusive relationships throughout her childhood. These experiences are reflected by her unique vocal tone that is “both vulnerable and mighty” (Flavorpill.com). Connie Lim calls her music Retrotronica: an ambient fusion of old school songwriting with electronic beats and soundscapes, reminiscent of Imogen Heap, Norah Jones, Feist, and Ellie Goulding. As a sensitive and delicate soul, Connie started to rely on beats and electronic textures to help her explore her more aggressive, sensual, and powerful sides. Her exploration of this very personal and unique music while writing The Hunted helped her see that she too could be strong enough to live the life she always dreamed of: that of the artist." ~ http://connielimmusic.com/biography/
