This is a crazy question to ask, but do you know if Lights takes a listen to samples from people? There's a really personal song I really want to explain and work on with her, but I don't want to be a hassle. Given her status and me being nobody I'm afraid to ask but I think if I get to explain and work to death, she might hear me out? Haha just a (really big) daydream of mine!
hi! i can’t really speak on her behalf but sometimes there are legal issues with this simply because people sue over hearing music that’s “too similar”
THANK YOU to everyone that came to summer sessions last week!!! I walked into WBR monday morning to a line of about 50 people and found out that some of you had waited the night before or as early as 2am that morning!!
It was so great to have everyone out and excited to see LIGHTS. It made such a huge difference to have your passion and energy in the audience! LIGHTS had some sound issues on the first song into her set. There was about 45 seconds of sheer terror on my face until you guys jumped in and started singing. We all know that LA shows are tough but especially when it’s an industry show but you guys sang along to “Drive My Soul”, cheered and demanded and encore. Never once at a summer session had an audience done an encore or sing like YOU did.
A colleague had flagged me down to give me a line status update. I was very proud to learn that Melissa, a fan, had decided to start a list for people that got in line that morning so that no one would cut or sell their spots. This is what it’s about- you guys taking care of each other and treating each other with fairness and respect. On top of that, i was told by several people that organized the event/ worked the store that you guys were extremely polite. This is the reason why we are allowed to invite fans to what would otherwise be private events. This is also why we got ALL of you into the show- started out with 50 and fit almost 150 people into the space because everyone working the event spoke highly of you.
I had my doubts as to how many people would actually show up since i had stated that we would only let around 50 people in. However, you all stuck around and had faith. Thank you guys for making it the best summer sessions yet and one of my favorite moments of working with LIGHTS!! <3333

PS: I was lucky enough to catch a fun moment before the set. Here is LIGHTS & Aaron warming up/ having a jam sesh to “Timing is Everything”.
PPS: LIGHTS is almost at a million likes on facebook. we might have something special for you next week… ;D
Woah ! You have a Tumblr! So glad I found it :) Do you think Lights will do anymore California shows? She only did two this past year and I was out of town both days :( I would love to go to a show if she comes back! :)
Ive been getting a bunch of LIGHTS related questions in my ask box like:
- what is LIGHTS’ favorite color?
- what’s her favorite food?
- where did she get (clothing item).
and some other random stuff. Answer is, i don’t know. LOL. they’re those types of questions that come up in awkward conversations when you have nothing else to talk about. Plus we dont live in the same city so the stuff you learn when hanging out with each other for long periods of time i don’t get to witness. sorry!
It’s no secret that as someone that works with the internet, we always looking for new ideas, sites, fun things to try, and experiment. The very idea of the internet is built on collaboration, relationships, recycling, reusing, hacking ideas together our and interconnected-ness. And there has been one band that I’ve watched from the beginning and that’s 30 seconds to mars. If you haven’t seen their video for “Closer To The Edge” watch it and you’ll understand.
They masterfully encapsulate the essence of being a fan into one video. The feeling of seeing your favorite band, your best friends in the audience, energy, and most importantly, what music means.
Hey J-Bug! Any chance we'll see seeing Lights in the Canadian Maritimes? Namely... Halifax? Hahaha we usually get looked over, so it'd be wicked awesome if she could pop by and grace us with her presence. :)
im sure she’ll do a more extensive tour in Canada. not sure when we’ll announce or where though!
Jeremy The Bug, what an honour it is to find your tumblr! I apologize if you've been asked this before. But I have a few questions...One; when will Siberia be available on ITunes other than Us and Canadian ITunes? I live in Australia and I was so excited to buy it, counted down and everything, however my ITunes won’t let me buy it because I have an Australian account. And Two; When will Lights hit Australia!? So many of us down here miss out on the shows and buying the Cds!! Come to us soon!
(waves). There are BIG plans for australia in the works. so im hoping for a release sooner than later :)
Yesterday, I finally got my download code for Siberia. The sophomore release from LIGHTS is an amazing addition to her musical career. Normally I wouldn’t just online to write about a song, but one (well, two) songs in particular really hit home with me.
I just want to offer my sincere appreciation to you, Jeremy! You give such great insight to curious Lights fans. Especially about things that aren't so easy to find out on our own. Thank you for being so open. You and Lights both GIVE a lot to everyone, and it doesn't go unnoticed. I don't know either of you on a personal level but I say that I am proud of everything you, Lights, and everyone involved do. I know it's all genuine and done with care and love. Thank you so much for everything! <3
:’D that means the world to me. thank you for saying that. <333333
