Warner Bros. Records Partners with Doghouse to Sign Electro-Pop Artist LIGHTS Label to Release Debut EP from Young Canadian Songstress on September 23rd, 2008

  LIGHTS Hits the Road with Boys Like Girls for Verizon College Tour
             September 26th and October 24th with Copeland
BURBANK, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Warner Bros. Records in partnership with Doghouse is pleased to
announce the signing of electro-pop singer, songwriter, and
multi-instrumentalist LIGHTS to its roster and will release a CD of
the Toronto-based 21-year-old's self-titled debut EP on September 23,

   The self-made Canadian writes, produces, and performs her own
music as well as designs her own artwork including the self-portrait
on the cover of her debut EP. The EP is a sparkling blend of
electronica-based pop, rock, and new wave, topped off by LIGHTS'
honeyed vocals. Four of its songs have already racked up a collective
3.8 million plays on LIGHTS' MySpace page. A digital version of the EP
was released on iTunes last April by Canadian indie label Underground
Operations and has already sold more than 8,000 copies and 70,000
singles based on LIGHTS' grassroots following. Fans got their first
listen to LIGHTS when four of her songs off the EP were used in Old
Navy's spring ad campaign. She also appears in one of the clothing
retailer's spots performing the track. More recently, the song "Drive
My Soul" was featured on MTV's "The Hills."

   After spending the summer performing on the Warped Tour in the
U.S., and V Fest in Toronto, and sharing stages with artists such as
Chiodos and Metric, LIGHTS will join Boys Like Girls and Cute is What
We Aim For on the Verizon College Tour starting September 26th. For
