“I wrote Lights in the City soon after I’d graduated and moved from a college town to a bigger city. I had just gotten out of a serious relationship and seemed to be on the cusp of a new one. So it was definitely a time of transition for me but that whirlwind feeling wasn’t all negative, most of it was actually really exciting. And the energy of the city kind of came to embody that for me: all the messy chaos and beauty of a really important but uncertain time in my life.” – Brady Parks
