Recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, NY, "Lights Out" is the latest single from an all-star cast of musicians. The song showcases the talents of Ari Joshua on guitar (Big High, AriSawkaDoria), Eden Ladin on keys (Gilad Hekselman, Avishai Cohen), John Kimock on drums (Mike Gordon Band, Otiel Burbridge & Friends), and Andy Hess on bass (Gov’t Mule, Black Crowes). This is the 9th independent release of 2023 and the 11th overall release, including “Soulmine” and “Fresh” from Color Red Music.

With Andy Hess and John Morgan Kimock creating a powerful and propulsive rhythm section, Eden Ladin's keyboards adding an atmospheric element to the song, and Ari’s guitar playing sitting somewhere between Jerry Garcia, Kenny Burrell, Trey Anastasio, and Slash— the chemistry among the musicians is palpable, resulting in a smooth and laidback track.

The session, a series of 1st takes, has many fruits still to share. Stay tuned for more to come.
