It is December 23rd 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
If you live in Canada, or most other parts of the world for that matter, the name Lights is most definitely one you will know.
At [just] twenty five, this Torontonian has gone on to impress people all around the world. Not only did this young woman win the Best New Artist award at the 2009 Juno Awards, but both of her studio albums have [already] gone gold. Not to mention the fact that she is truly one of the most talented young writers out there.
Lights may have sucked people in when she released her first hit song, Drive My Soul, back in March of 2008. However, her newest record, Siberia, definitely shows the growth and inspirations of this artist as she has steadily evolved. The album is undoubtedly her most mature one yet.
If you are addicted to Siberia, such as myself, you should recognize this week's 'Song of the Week'. Timing Is Everything is the seventh track on her record. And, may I say, the only unfortunate thing about the song is that it is only three minutes and sixteen seconds long.
Siberia peaked at number three on the Canadian Albums Chart and number forty seven on the US Billboard Chart. Plus, as I mentioned, it has already gone gold since being released on October 4th 2011.
There really is not a whole lot left to say about this amazing Canadian artist that has not been said before. Her music is something that has truly blown away anyone who has ever listened. Plus, her music videos always capture and portray just the right scenes to set off her incredible lyrics. Lights is seriously one talented young woman.
So, I will leave it at that. If you have yet to discover Lights, well, you are most definitely missing out, as she is seriously amazing.
With everything she has shown the world so far, it is clear this woman will be in the music industry for quite a long time. And, because of her extreme talent, Timing Is Everything is getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
I am incredibly stoked to see what Lights does throughout 2013, as I imagine you are too.
If you have not purchased Siberia, make sure you do very soon. And, while you are on the internet, why not check out the phenomenal official music video for Timing Is Everything, this week's 'Song of the Week', found here:
