Recently, I had the great privilege of interviewing one of my favorite musical artists, Lights. She was in Minneapolis at the wonderful Varsity Theater for an acoustic show. I was thrilled to not only see her perform there once again but also have a one-on-one conversation with her backstage before the concert. We talked about her acoustic tour, using new instruments, her evolution as an artist, her favorite soundtrack, and I was even able to sneak in a couple questions about Game of Thrones, which she's quite a big fan of.
As you'll see in the interview below, she cares a great deal about the craft of her music and her devoted fans, so it's easy to see why this Canadian electropop artist has garnered quite the following over the years. For more on Lights, be sure to check out her official website. You can also preview and download her new Siberia Acoustic album on iTunes.
