Conard's songwriting style ranges from toe-tapping, country-fried Americana to earthy, folk-tinged blues. All her songs, regardless of their patchwork roots, are anchored by rich, earthy vocals that are equally capable of soothing and electrifying.
Often classing up the stage with Lorraine is guitarist, singer, and songwriter Ray Chesna. He's a accomplished player of many Americana styles, Bluegrass, Newgrass, Old Time, Swing, Honky Tonk, Country Blues, and Electric Blues. He's a terrific performer, who can write, sing, play and entertain, all with great results. Ray's songwriting, as you might expect from his wide musical experience, is eclectic, original, well crafted and singable, while still in the Americana mold.
Performing also gives Lorraine a chance to perfect her second-favorite art form: the bad joke. Did you hear the one about the two muffins in an oven…?
