A lightning bug glows with the aid of a chemical called luciferin, derived from Latin for “light-bringer”. Lightning Bug began as three friends who made music together to bring each other light. The music we make continues to hold that purpose at its heart. Each song is born from a cycle of tension and release as I struggle to do the right thing, to follow the right path, and to become who I want to be. These struggles within the individual are mirrored in the greater patterns of life and nature. The music of Lightning Bug is an attempt to record the deepest experiences in the self and connect them outward.
