Armed with a Juno Award for Best New Artist (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy) and 15 million plays on her MySpace page, Toronto musician Lights is a fresh new face in the “intergalactic-electro music” genre. Lights (aka Valerie Poxleitner) clarifies this description by saying, “I try to find sounds that seem like they could have been plucked from Saturn’s rings or a meteor belt. Equal parts fantastical/epic/beautiful/emotional.” After spending much of the year on the Warped Tour and as the opening act for Keane, Lights is now headlining venues on the strength of her full-length debut, “The Listening.”
