Derek Vincent Smith, better known as Pretty Lights, will hit the road this October with a full live band for the first time. Joining Smith on stage will be drummer Adam Deitch (Break Science), keyboardist Brian Coogan, keyboardist Borahm Lee, Scott Flynn (John Brown’s Body) on trombone and Eric Bloom (Lettuce) on trumpet. Deitch and Coogan both played extensively on Pretty Lights’ latest album A Color Map of the Sun released in July.
“My dream has come true. I will be hitting the road for my 2013 fall tour with a FULL, AWESOME LIVE BAND! We will be fusing new, hot production with the live band’s gritty old school hip-hop soul break styles in a way that production and a live band have never been heard together before,” Smith says.
