Ontario-born electro-pop artist Lights got her bearings at the ripe young age of 15, when she signed on with Sony as a songwriter for Canadian drama Instant Star. A slew of hits (“Drive My Soul,” “Saviour,” “Ice”) and a Juno Award for New Artist of the Year in 2009 followed, all before she was even 20 years old. Collaborations with post-hardcore groups Silverstein and Bring Me the Horizon, gold certification for her debut album, The Listening, and a widely acclaimed sophomore album, 2011’s Siberia, also nominated for a Juno Award, have secured Lights’ place as a dominating force in the pop industry. Considering her track record, it will come as no surprise if her latest work, this year’s Little Machines, continues her winning streak.
