Hannah Bussiere, stage name Luna Li, is a bright new star raising on the Canadian Independent Music scene. Starting to play piano at 5 years of age, and violin at 7, she has over 16 years of classical music training, but is now sometimes referred to as the Garage Rock Princess. She attended the Classical Music Conservatory in Toronto, and one semester in McGill Conservatory in Montreal where she started writing her own songs. In 2015 she released her debut album Moon Garden, with the band Veins. It amassed over 30,000+ online streams and received attention from The Deli Magazine, CBC Radio, Women in Music and Art, and Revibe TO. The Deli has called her music a “dreamy romp through some beautiful melodies and heartbreaking lyrics.”
In 2016 she finished an Independent Musical Production program at Seneca. In 2017 Luna Li was born and they have recently released 2 videos Opel Angel; and Star Stuff, for which Hannah received the SOCAN Music Award for Young Singer Songwriters. Noisey.Vice.Com said Star Stuff, “sincerely exhibits a sense of optimism and innocence amid Bussiere’s huskier vocals.”
