Bright Light Bright Light is the moniker of Welsh born, London based Rod Thomas who released his debut album 'Make Me Believe In Hope' last year to rave reviews. Hailed by Sunday Times Culture as "a songwriter of extraordinary dexterity", by Elton John as the hottest new thing in music, ending up at no.4 in the Guardian Reader's Albums of 2012 poll, and touring with Ellie Goulding, Erasure and Scissor Sisters, it's clear that hid late 80s/early 90s tinged electro-pop has found quite a few fans in the last few months.
Rod, "the boy Robyn in all but name" according to the NME, is performer, songwriter, producer and DJ. His debut record was put together with Boom Bip (Neon Neon), Andy Chatterley (Kylie, Nerina Pallot), The Invisible Men (Jessie J, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea) and won the heart of journalists and fans alike since its release. Single 'Waiting For The Feeling' even brought key 90s production team Trouser Enthusiasts out of retirement for their first remix in 10 years, much to Rod's joy. A remixer himself, his Kelis and Ellie Goulding mixes, and bootlegs peppered blogs throughout 2012. He made DJ mixes for Ministry Of Sound, fashion brands, and magazines, DJd at Glastonbury, Bestival, Standon Calling, numerous Pride events, and runs successful London 90s clubnight 'Another Night' in Dalston's Vogue Fabrics.
Alongside making his own music, he's also part of Slow Knights, a musical collective formed by Del Marquis of Scissor Sisters, whose debut album 'Cosmos' came out 25th March 2013 to very strong reviews and a lot of love from Billboard Magazine. Spending some time in New York to promote the record, he's also played a string of sold-out Bright Light Bright Light shows.
