The female fronted pop/rock band - The Bright - officially formed in 2005 in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX by vocalist Julie Lange, bassist Miguel Fair and guitarist Kell Curtis. After releasing a full-length album in late 2005 (By All Means), they were joined by guitarist Taylor Tatsch, drummer Cooper Heffley and producer/keyboardist Eric Jenkins. With an award winning HD music video (entitled "If You Want It"), a debut album, extensive shows under their belt and a tour of the west coast in late 2007, the band went to work on another full-length release entitled "In Lucid Dreams". After pre-releasing several songs from the album as an EP ("Pull Me Apart") for the 2007 summer tour, the band felt the new name was more reflective of the new music.
Described as "Beautiful, stylish stuff that just might infiltrate your daydreams" by the Fort Worth Star Telegram and "that strange collective with a penchant for writing the most radio-friendly songs this side of LA -- we mean that in a good way," by the Dallas Observer, The Bright's sound is influenced by 80's new wave and synth pop, 90's Brit and dream pop, yet always guitar driven with even a dash of 70's British rock. To be referred to as a "collective" is a fitting description. It has a feel of being more than just a band with a couple of key songwriters and the rest merely performers. Each member of The Bright brings accomplished songwriting skills adding individual thumbprints to every song.
