Biography

Bright Light Fever is a powerhouse rock quartet hailing from Sacramento, California. Coming from the inevitable humble beginnings that any band of consequence must come from, Bright Light Fever have been hard at their toil for 4 years now.

Founded by Evan and Don at the delicate age of 17, the bands first couple years were those of an entirely different band. A growing, developing band, that after recording three EP’s came to this decision: continue playing the garbage songs you wrote in high school, or break up, move on and do better things.

A difficult choice?

No, not at all, but as chance would have it, someone involved with a record label thought that one of the “high school garbage songs” was destined to be a smash hit, bigger than the “Macarena”. Faced with their first true dilemma, Evan and Don held council, deliberated, delegated, and decided that with the addition of new members (Mark and Robert), they would take the record deal.

Thus Bright Light Fever entered into the world of the “music biz”, signing to Stolen Transmission/Island Records in early ‘06. With their hearts buoyed by all the cuddly fun promises of signing a record deal, the boys were faced with the task of getting the new lineup solid and composing a record. In stepped Joby J Ford (of the Bronx) to produce the album, and over the course of three weeks a ragtag team of misfits was whipped into what could be called a band, complete with record deal and a critically acclaimed debut album, entitled “Bright Light Fever presents The Evening Owl”.
