Music has a way of bringing people together along with a few well placed social media posts, and that’s exactly what happened when four relative strangers from Oshawa, started the journey that would come to be known as Big City Lights.
Big City Lights are Mekeli Villamor (lead vocals) Keith Dean (lead guitar, harmonies) Johnny Gregson (bass, harmonies) & Kevin Ferguson (drums)
Their live performance turned heads at an industry listening party which led to interest from multiple booking agencies, resulting in the band signing with APA Touring.
When BCL is on the stage, audiences are continuously impressed by their explosive energy, good vibes and smooth harmonies. Big City Lights plays country music with a twist of soulful pop, rock and R&B, pushing the limits and bringing a new sound to the ever growing genre.
BCL won New Country Spirit’s Emerging Artist Award in partnership with the CMAO and since then they have toured with Cold Creek County, played direct support slots with High Valley and Tebey and have shared the stage with such artists as The Reklaws, Meghan Patrick and Luke Bryan while playing some notable summer festivals including Crooks Rapids Country Fest, Mississauga Waterfront Festival, and Cavendish Beach Music Festival.
Big City Lights debuts EP will come out later in 2022. “Warm Beer” is the latest offering (written by Ryan Hurd) and is available on all streaming services. It is an upbeat, all the “feel” song that will have you smiling and dreaming of those warm summer nights under the stars.
