Biography

My name is LIGHTS. I'm a small girl who dwells in Toronto. I make music with a computer and a couple sweet synths. I also play whatever other sound makers I can get my pincers on. Making music has been my crutch/drug/vent/vice for my whole life. Most of what you hear starts, and is often finished, in my room (wherever that may be, I relocate like a hermit crab). When I write songs I think ... Read more in Amazon's LIGHTS Store

Editorial Reviews

Sure as aliens have laser guns and princesses have crowns, listening to Lights will bring you back to your innocence in an instant. Mind you, an innocence accompanied by musical adventure and observations way beyond the years of its creator. At the age of 21, the sparkling songstress sculpts music from her bedroom that is fresh, enchanting and infectious, drawing influences from such artists as Bjork and Annie Lennox.

I like to put it in the player and just let it run all the way through.

It took me a good month of trying to find her cd's in my local mall and stores with no luck, before I came on here and found them!

There is a sweet innocence to her music and comes through her dream-pop, eclectic and relaxing voice.

LIGHTS, what can I say, but WOW! If I had to choose a word for the entire package, it'd be sweet. Sweet because her music makes me smile, brings a dreamy nostalgia to the air. Sweet because her voice is sugar-filled and melodic, almost like another instrument in the mix. Sweet because Lights' music is so simple it's complex. She's found her niche in the music world, and she's fantastic. I've never heard another artist like her. In a world of copycats, Lights brings originality. She brings light!

I bought the Lights album by Lights (Valerie Poxleitner) because I had heard four of the songs on the Internet. The more that I listened, the better that I liked the pure, clean sounds from this young artist. My four favorites are the four that appear on her myspace Web site: Drive My Soul, February Air, White, and The Last Thing On Your Mind. My favorite has always been The Last Thing on Your Mind, with Drive My Soul as my second favorite of the four, February Air my third, and White my fourth. There are two more songs on this CD, Ice and I Owe You One. I like them both, and they will probably grow on me the more that I listen to them.

I love the fresh sound of this newcomer to the music scene. Her songs are her own creation, for the most part, and reflect the innocent enthusiasm of youth. Her sound has been described variously as bubblegum pop, indie, and synth new wave. However you define it, I like it and recommend it.

I was a little disappointed in the copy that I bought, released by Underground Operations, in that, when played on my Windows Media Player, there appeared no track or album information, just Unknown Album, with the tracks merely listed by number.

I had never heard of Lights until Fall 2008 when I attended a Copeland concert. She was the first act of the evening, and as people have described her style of music - funky, bubblegum, inspiring - so she was on stage. Her presence was stellar and she quickly became an addition to my music collection. In just 6 songs she relates to you in a profound way while altering your mood in such a cheering, captivating manner.

I love when the artist isn't just talented on a CD but in person as well - and Lights is one of those musicians.

I first heard some of these tunes on Old Navy commercials. I could not get them out of my head. The worst part was, at the time, they were not available for purchase. I had to make due with occasional listens on the artists Myspace page. I would love to give some grandiose and meaningful review or insight about these songs but instead I find that their charm and appeal for me is just their ability to lighten my mood, make me smile and make me feel happy. Thanks to Amazon for making these available and best of luck and continued success to the artist.

I first heard of Valerie Poxleitner AKA LIGHTS from an Old Navy commercial. Checked the Old Navy website and viola, I found her. LIGHTS features a refreshing new approach on pop music. I really like all the songs from this EP. She presents a "feel good" style that make it nearly impossible to feel sad after listening to it. LIGHTS is perfect! Well, that's another song by her. LOL.

Very refreshing. A family member had recommended me to listen to Lights first few releases, before she had a CD in the states, and I was impressed with the originality she brought. I hadn't heard such airy synth mixes before. A true artist in the making, who produces her own sounds, music, and writes her own lyrics. Her voice has a softness to it, and her music has that dreamy quality that can make you happy inside, with catchy tunes, but with much deeper feelings underneath. I had the chance to see her perform live, and I was blown away by her passion, and the quality of her performance. I mean, she was using a keytar...yes a keytar!! The music sounded even better live than what I had heard previously. If you like her music, you must see her live!

Like so many others, I discovered Lights through the series of Old Navy commercials in early 2008.

Originally, I bought the four-track EP from the iTunes Music Store, but wanted to have the two extra tracks and full fidelity, so I picked this up from Amazon.

While I absolutely adore this, I was a little disappointed to find that some of the flat and wobbly sounds I heard on the ITMS tracks were present on the CD, but the extra two tracks more than made up for it.

Sadly, I don't expect her to gain notoriety beyond what she's already found. There isn't a ton of range to be found here, as opposed to some of the more mainstream young female artists competing for airplay today. But what she does, she does incredibly well.
