Lights was born in Ontario to missionary parents and spent her childhood traveling the world. After gaining insights into various different cultures, she decided to express herself through a universal method—music. She composed songs for the television series Instant Star and went on to become a distinguished electronic musician. Today, Lights is celebrating her sophomore album, Siberia, with a U.S. tour. One of her stops is at the Irving Plaza, in New York, on April 20. Tickets are $18; show starts at 8 p.m.
