Loren Connors has improvised and composed music for about thirty-five years, continually charting new territory with the guitar and never “standing still.” His music, sometimes called avant blues, has been recorded on Northern Spy, Family Vineyard, Drag City, and other labels. In addition to his long-time collaboration with Suzanne Langille, he has performed with John Fahey, Jim O’Rourke, Keiji Haino, Thurston Moore and other artists, and with his band, Haunted House (which includes Langille). Thom Jurek (All Music Guide) writes, “Where the 12 bars are supposed to be placed are sparse notes and large spaces where notes, harmony, and melody once existed. Touch, sense, and aural interrogation are the only bones left on the skeleton of Connor’s blues.”
