Canadian singer-songwriter/electro-popper goes acoustic on her latest album 'Siberia Acoustic', as well as on these live appearances for At: Guitar Center.

"Flux & Flow" and "Cactus in the Valley" are both given a live workout by Lights for her recent "At: Guitar Center with Nic Harcourt" podcast. The vocals are enigmatic and passionate and the cello handling bass duties is simply exquisite. The simple arrangements of vocals, guitar, and cello highlight the strength of these tunes.
