LIGHTS OF BERLIN are a Perth based four piece fronted by YouTube sensation Devon Bayer. Devon intrigued music fans with his acapella covers generating tens of thousands of views and continues to gain notoriety through his voice. Guitarist Campbell Ellis, has a distinguished solo career and is a student of composition at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, also a WAAPA student, Daniel Caddy joined the band in 2013 on drums adding to the rich stadium type sound. Completing the line up is bass player and local producer Michael Hilliard, Michael has played in a number of well know Perth bands and is best known for his raw energy on stage.
Less than a year into being a band LIGHTS OF BERLIN enlisted Singaporean producer Roland Lim (Birds Of Tokyo, Make Them Suffer) to join them for their debut EP recording. The lead single is the anthemic “Chosen Ones”, which received widespread airplay and online support.
The live show is equally as ambitious as the initial recordings for LIGHTS OF BERLIN.
No shoe-gazing here. Keeping the stadium rock tradition alive, LIGHTS OF BERLIN take their role as entertainers incredibly seriously and are unafraid of some good old fashioned rock n roll excess.
The bands debut EP titled BRAND NEW DAY was released in October 2013 and received widespread praise, winning awards, commendations and being named one of best new releases of 2013 to come out of Australia. The EP took off like a rocket and excelled the band into new territory not only in Perth, but all around the world.
Lights of Berlin now turns their attention to touring and bringing their live show around the world to a town near you.
