ELECTRO-POP SINGER/SONGWRITER LIGHTS ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL DATES SUPPORTING OWL CITY

Keytar-wielding synth-pop sensation LIGHTS has extended her tour with Owl City. Beginning January 21st in Kansas City, MO, the dates will continue through May 2nd in Milwaukee, WI. The artists will also be making international stops in the UK, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Twenty two year-old singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist LIGHTS crafts sparkling, otherworldly electro-pop that has already garnered her over 19 million plays on MySpace, a #1 hit in Canada and the 2009 JUNO for New Artist of the Year. LIGHTS was selected as an inaugural artist for MySpace’s new Introducing program, and she stars in her own short-form motion-comic series Audio Quest: A Captain LIGHTS Adventure, which airs on MTV and MTV.com. Rolling Stone called LIGHTS a “retro new wave…keytar-rocking pixie,” and the Toronto Star praised her as “the very epitome of D.I.Y. pin-up cool.”

LIGHTS has also released Ice Pack, an exclusive remix EP. The EP features six unique versions of “Ice”, an 80’s influenced, irresistibly catchy track off The Listening. The Ice Pack is available exclusively online at www.iamlights.com. The EP features a diverse group of highly respected artists and producers: Rancid front man Tim Armstrong works his magic on “Ice”, as does Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle’s Danny Lohner. Underground UK remixers Modernaire (La Roux, MGMT) and world-renowned producer and engineer Mark ‘Spike’ Stent who has worked with Bjork, Muse, No Doubt and more also contribute. Toronto-based LIGHTS enlisted her Canadian peers as well: award-winning Vancouver hip-hop artist K-OS and up & coming songwriter and producer Colin Munroe each personalize a version of “Ice.”

The official LIGHTS store is running a special promotion where customers can get $5 off their order when they buy Ice Pack and any two apparel items. In addition, every order through 12/31 will have free shipping. Visit the official LIGHTS store at http://www.IAMLIGHTS.com/shop
