Biography

There are at least six artists operating under the name Lights:

[1] Canadian singer-songwriter Lights Poxleitner
[2] An audio/visual project and avant-folk four-piece from Brooklyn, NY
[3] Early 2000’s British Rock band
[4] North London Indie Band Lights
[5] Lights from Massachusetts
[6] Solo artist from York, UK


[1] Lights (born Valerie Anne Poxleitner on 11 April 1987 who later changed her name legally to Lights Valerie Poxleitner), is a Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She is best known for her heavily synthesized dream pop music.

Her song “Drive My Soul” peaked at #18 in the Canadian Hot 100 in 2008. Her next single, “February Air”, was released on 9 December 2008 and the video for that song was put on the web on 12 December 2008. In 2009, Lights released her third single to radio called “Ice” with a self-made video released via her MySpace.

Lights won Indie awards in the Favourite Solo Artist and Favourite Single categories during Canadian Music Week in March 2009 at Toronto, Ontario. She won the Best New Artist awards in the Hot AC and CHR categories. All awards were for her debut single Drive My Soul, except the award for Favourite Solo Artist. She won best new artist at the 2009 Juno Awards. Three singles from Lights’ 2009 album “The Listening”, have since been released: “Saviour”, “Ice”, “The Listening” and “Second Go”.


[2] LIGHTS is an avant-folk four-piece from Brooklyn that draws heavily on the 70ies psych-rock, funk and disco-pop traditions blending it with ethereal vocal arrangements/harmonies and a more contemporary drone input.

    It's brilliant how well Muscle Memory & Oil and Water fit together! Both songs are about yearning, but in Muscle Memory still we still got that spark of hope. In Oil and Water it's completely gone. LIGHTS is brilliant! ♥
