The Coloured Lights


The Coloured Lights are a five piece rock band hailing from Montreal, Canada. Starting out recording demos in a Toronto basement in May 2005, they have performed over 80 live shows across their home provinces of Ontario and Quebec. This past summer, the band attracted the attention of Upp Records, a small independent Montreal record label, and this led to the recording of their first studio EP, "A Six Track Demo".

The Coloured Lights are a five piece rock band hailing from Montreal, Canada. Starting out recording demos in a Toronto basement in May 2005, they have performed over 80 live shows across their home provinces of Ontario and Quebec. This past summer, the band attracted the attention of Upp Records, a small independent Montreal record label, and this led to the recording of their first studio EP, "A Six Track Demo". After some success and a lot of teeth-baring, "Twelve Steps to Space" was released in November 2007, and is available now as a free download at TwelveStepsToSpace.com. More... In late 2006, independent radio and the podcast community responded positively to "A Six Track Demo", giving the demo regular airplay.

Specifically, the record was received enthusiastically at University Campus radio in Toronto, Montreal, Kitchener, Guelph and London as well as at commercial radio stations in Denmark, Italy, England and Portugal. Notable performances have been the two on-air live performances at 89.5 CIUT Radio Toronto leading up to the two exciting showcase performances organized by Upp Records at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto and the Café Campus in Montreal. Last spring's university campus tour saw the band play to student crowds across Ontario and Quebec supported by a sponsorship with Mazda. This partnership came about when Mazda held an online independent songwriting contest judged by editors of Spin Magazine, with a goal of finding a track to attach to Mazda's Campus Joyride advertising campaign. “Float Not Fly” from "A Six Track Demo" was selected for the campaign, and pleased with the results of this arrangement, Mazda and Upp Records enacted an agreement to sponsor the band's tour.

Heeding the success of the demo, the supporting tours and the online presence, Upp Records decided in February of 2007 to sponsor the recording of a full length LP at Nada Yoga studios in Montreal. Fast forwarding to November 2007, and The Coloured Lights have released their Debut album, Twelve Steps to Space. The record reflects a sophomore sound and production level for the band, as well as a new philosophical direction. Specifically, the band's message of compassion comes through the medium as well: In conjunction with Upp Records, Sketch Charity and the United Nations World Food Program, "Twelve Steps to Space" has been made available online as a free download for listeners.

The record and movement mark an initiative to promote the idea that we all have the ability to change things for the better, even with our smallest gestures. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
