In Youngstown, Ohio, singer/songwriter Dan Spencer created a style of music that was something new and refreshing of his own. It was something that was a reflection of who he was as a person. In may of 2003, he brought in Jason Latimer to help create this vision he had.
They became Jay and Dan unplugged and hit the acoustic coffee house scene. After several successful performances, Dan decided it was time to take their sound to the next level by forming The Redlights in February of 2004. This band shortly became everything Dan could imagine.
This sound he had created could be heard together for the first time in the flesh. The sound became one of a kind - a mix of pop, rock, and power that can withstand the test of time. The band later signed a local indie record contract and a management contract with Horizon in NY.
In September of 2006 Dan decided to leave the redlights to pursue a solo career. With a ever-dying original music scene in Ohio and a lack of venues to play it seemed to be the best option for him. He is currently working on his first solo record and it is going to be out in spring of 2008.
