Biography

Of Birds, Bees, Butterflies, etc., Late Night Alumni’s sophomore full-length release, is available as a digital album and on CD on the Ultra label.

Late Night Alumni, comprised of Becky Jean Williams, Finn Bjarnson, John Hancock, and Kaskade, is best known for their 2005 international hit single “Empty Streets” from the album of the same name. Released in the UK by the Ministry of Sound label, Empty Streets garnered a strong underground following, and has become a mainstay on dancefloors and airwaves around the world. Their sound is characterized by an immaculately crafted production style that rides between electronic and organic, tied together with the angelic vocal presence of front-woman Becky Jean Williams.

The group came into being in 2003 when Bjarnson, who had already worked with Kaskade, met Williams and the three of them began recording as Late Night Alumni. In 2004, the Hed Kandi label made an offer to release a full-length Late Night Alumni album. “At that point,” Bjarnson says, “I knew the band was not ready. We were missing an element.” The missing element turned out to be John Hancock, a talented local producer with whom Bjarnson had been trying to “find an excuse” to work with for years. The band was complete and began mixing electronic and organic elements for a unique brand of chill that is easily distinguishable in today’s electronic music scene.
