Young Lights is lead by Jairo "Jay" Horsth Paes. Raised in Massachusetts, EUA. Jay made his way to Brazil at the end of 2010, with both emotional and physical baggage.
In Brazil, he began writing songs in order to channel his thoughts and experiences, and discovered that through these songs he was able to feel at home again. Jay's roots had always been folk his entire life and is without a doubt the characteristic that most stands out.
Also part of Young Lights are Vitor "Boss" Ávila (guitars), Joao Paulo Pesce (Bass) and Gentil Nacimento (drums). The individual experience of each member and the combination of Jay's folk roots results in an indie/folk sound with detailism, sentiment and an abundance of energy during live shows.
In 2013, the EP "An Early Winter" was first released, followed by recognition in the specialized press, other than the faithful following resulted from the various shows made around the capital city of Belo Horizonte. After this period, the full LP "Cities" was released in 2014. During the record promoting, the band collected passage through many renowned stages in various cities in Brazil.
