Listen: Highlights From Syna So Pro's 'After Hours' Event
Syna So Pro is the solo project from St. Louis musician Syrhea Conaway. In her music, she explores themes of emotional rebirth through self-discovery. She performs as — what she describes — a “one-woman musical enigma.”
Last Friday, for St. Louis on the Air’s first “After Hours” music event in the Public Media Commons, Conaway played songs from her latest double-album CHILL/HYPE, which she describes as giving depth to the emotional range of self-reflection without words.
In addition to talking with host Sarah Fenske about her musical journey, influences and techniques, she played various traditional instruments, including violin and bass. But that’s not all. Although Conaway said she wasn’t always a fan of incorporating technology into her music, now she’s all in. She fuses stringed instruments with pedals, rack units, mixers and beats.
“St. Louis on the Air” brings you the stories of St. Louis and the people who live, work and create in our region. The show is hosted by Sarah Fenske and produced by Alex Heuer, Emily Woodbury, Evie Hemphill and Lara Hamdan. Paola Rodriguez is our production assistant. The audio engineer is Aaron Doerr.
