Canada’s acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and Juno Award winner Lights will perform a very special show at Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on September 30th, as the 2014 Artist Ambassador for Pinktober®, Hard Rock’s annual campaign for breast cancer awareness. The 18+ show begins at 7 p.m. and is free with RSVP.
Celebrating its 15th year raising awareness and funds for breast cancer, Hard Rock’s Pinktober® is joining forces with a host of musicians around the world for parties, live music events, and the chance to raise awareness and money for local, national, and international charities, including The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and The Caron Keating Foundation. Lights is also gearing up for the September 23rd release of her third studio album Little Machines, having just released a new music video for “Portal.” The black-and-white visual finds her driving down a country road, inevitably ditching her car to search for a portal on foot. Watch the video via the Refinery29 premiere or YouTube.
Little Machines was produced and engineered by Drew Pearson, with key songs/singles mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent (Madonna, U2, Beyoncé). The anthemic first single “Up We Go” is available now to purchase digitally or as an instant grat when you pre-order the full album, and can be heard on YouTube and on iamlights.com. Lights will start her national tour in Portland, ME, on October 24th.
