Back in 2005 Valerie Poxleitner had her name legally changed to Lights. It was a nickname based on her last name (Pronounced Pox-Light-ner). Apparently she did this partly to get around a copyright issue with another band called Lights.
By this time she had already been writing songs for Sony Publishing for 3 years, and was ready for her own project. It wasn’t until ’08 that she finally put out her debut LP.
Flash forward another 7 years, and she’s 4 albums deep, her most recent being released just this last July to rave reviews. Check out the song below.
