Ora Cogan / Laena Myers

Ora Cogan's smoky, psychedelic approach to gothic country merges with post-punk, psych-rock and traditional balladry. Cogan is known for her singular voice and cinematic compositions. She has collaborated with a multitude of artists while touring extensively throughout Europe & North America, sharing the stage with the likes of Grouper & Mazzy Star. Her new album, Formless, came out to critical acclaim in 2023. ~

Laena Myers’ experimental punk background of guitar-based songwriting merges with her violinist roots and love for singing ballads, leading to a depth of emotion that cuts to the heart of even the most hardened. Released this Spring '24, her 11-track debut LP LUV (Songs of Yesterday) was well-received, with critical acclaim from print publications such as Mojo Magazine – "Myers' solo debut feels full to the brim, with experience, ideas and detached cool", as well as UNCUT, "The title track is a dreamy, instrumental swirl. Look hard at the bruised introversion and melodies bleed through.. while the gorgeous 'Give Em Hell' has power, resilience and a country song's attitude to starting over."

Laena has just returned from a month-long European tour in support of the album, performing as a 2-piece with Cole Berliner. She will be taking the 2220 stage with this same configuration.
