Pretty Lights is the brainchild of multi-talented producer extraordinaire Derek Vincent Smith. His ability to seamlessly create songs from sampling sections of erstwhile tunes has risen the Ft. Collins, Colorado-based musician to a high pedestal few in the electronic music scene that few could ever dream of. Smith is able to make his live shows unique and spontaneous with the occasional aid of a live drummer who helps add a degree of spontaneity to the Pretty Lights live sound. Although Smith released his debut LP, Taking Up Your Precious Time, in 2006, it took a few years of national touring for his Pretty Lights project to catch momentum and attract a wide swath of fans and listeners.
