Connie Lansberg is a singer/songwriter, jazz artist and published author, and for this artist, it is all about the story. Connie manages to be both accessible and sophisticated while gracefully traversing folk, pop, and jazz with authenticity and ingenuity.
She is drawn to stories that hold a mirror to our triumphs and tragedies, our loves, and our losses. As an author, she loves the long-form. As a songwriter and singer, there is nothing more pleasing than summing up the difficult, the wonderful, the terrifying, the exhilarating feeling of falling in or out of love in a three-minute soliloquy accompanied by talented musicians.
Her two original albums plus two standard albums, Alone with Bees, Tsera’s Gift, Insomnious Volume 1 and You Hit The Spot will be released as four-CD box-set along with a book of short stories in Nov. 2020. Connie's first book, Tsera’s Gift Ep. 1, The Perfect Tear, (BHC PRESS), is being released in Nov. in conjunction with the music.
At her creative core, Connie is a storyteller. Her songs brim with elegantly expressive melodies, and poetic lyrics. She is inspired as much by Shakespeare as she is by Simon & Garfunkel, Carole King, and Latin hymns.
Reading and writing have always been essential to Connie's creative process. What ties her books and songs together are well-chosen, beautifully written words. The only difference between her books and songs is the word count.
“Listeners who like to hear a singer present the drama, the melancholy or the joy contained in a song will enjoy Connie Lansberg’s upcoming release, Alone with Bees.”
