Pilot Light, a solo singer/songwriter from Toronto. Fresh, yet thought provoking lyrics seem to perfectly compliment the pop sensibility of this up and coming artist.
Picking up a guitar at the age of 14 (Which may be considered a late start by musical standards) Songwriting seem to come quite natural to this big city teenager. Already coming from a musical background of drumming, and musical theatre, it was evident that Michael (aka Pilot Light) yearned a much more personal outlet to the musical world. For several years he would find his way in and out of several bands, but none would make a more lasting impression on his career than "Electric Karma". What began as a college band in London Ontario, this project moved its way over to Toronto in 2009 to test its limits. From 2009-2011 Electric Karma would work its way through the major live venues the city had to offer, playing the likes of The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, El Mocambo, and Lee's Palace, just to name a few. But as time moved on, so did the members of this Alt Rock trio. And through the ashes of an abandon group, emerged Pilot Light. A gentler, more personal side of a musical front man.
Working off the release of a debut LP titled "In Threes" (released June 2013) A recognizable momentum is beginning to build for the soloist, which brought gigs at NXNE, Winterfolk Festival, CMW & Indie Week Toronto (which included a semi finals appearance).
Keep a watchful eye on this Pilot in the sky...
