The Light Set:
The Light Set, a chamber folk-pop outfit, formed in New Orleans in 2016. The chorally influenced six-piece group sings harmony-drenched, reflective narratives. Their debut EP, “Diving,” was released in September 2018, and was described by The Gambit as “crashing waves of harmonies… delicate arrangements, wistful recollections of love and regret that build into life-giving hymns.” Their semi-annual Solstice show at the Marigny Opera House was also recently lauded as “catharsis through sad songs sung beautifully.” Find them at @thelightset on Instagram and Facebook or at thelightset.com
Songwriting driven by vintage keyboards, Megan Diana loves a Wurlitzer and Fender Rhodes – especially when put thru an echo pedal. She layers her lush voice in choral layers – going atmospheric at times and then all at once back to the center of her chest in a whisper. Her record allows her to bring in her French Horn in equal parts Canadian Brass and Chet Baker (if he played the F Horn). Some songs lean towards Dark Americana Noir, others clearly constructed pop- with a full band (and new her pedal steel player) things start to turn Western Flavor Florence Welch and have given life to her new genre – DREAM COUNTRY DISCO
