Canadian singer Valerie Anne Poxleitner originally played off her last name to create the stage persona of Lights and become a pop star. After a successful EP, the talented performer released The Listening in 2009 and toured to Chicago playing at Subterranean in October of that year. That's where I met and interviewed her after discovering her sound on an MTV reality show. Her confidence has grown as well as her budget since then.
Lights has evolved in many ways since that time and her show at the House of Blues on May 4, 2022, was proof of that. She started her Baby I'm Back Tour in the Windy City with the appropriately titled track "Prodigal Daughter."
