MUSIC MONDAY: L.A., the Devil, and other love songs

Singer and songwriter Connie Lim has a direct and spare style that gives her contemporary songs emotional clarity. The Los Angeles-based musician hasn’t gained much nationwide attention, but she has been producing an impressive range of songs that include alternative pop ballads, covers, smooth soul, and more recent indietronic rock.

The following music videos feature her performances of two original songs she wrote (“L.A. City” and “Just As Good”) and her  version of Irving Berlin’s classic “Blue Skies”. Her more recent musical explorations depart from these more mellow music into synthrock (“Devil Devil”) that has been featured in the TV series “The Royals.”
