What is Light FM? It’s that sound engrained in your head… the one that you keep looking for but until now have yet to find. You may have heard it while viewing your guilty pleasures (Gossip Girl, The Hills, How I Met Your Mother, One Tree Hill, Jersey Shore and The City…to name just a few) or while sitting in the cinema (Shrek IV). Now it is time for you to find out what all of the music supervisors already know, Light FM, with its cool, relentlessly catchy, indie pop songs, needs to be the new band for the soundtrack of your life. Led by Josiah Mazzaschi and backed by an ace group of talented musicians, Light FM combines catchy hooks and disarmingly heart-felt lyrics with guitar riffs that are distorted to precision. . . a sound that grabs you both by the throat and gut while blowing your ears out . . . Light FM is all encompassing and instantly familiar. Coupled with quirky arrangements, bleepy-bloopy synths and off-kilter drums, Light FM’s sound makes perfect sense. The guys and gals in the band aren’t exactly hard to look at either. Having left Chicago, where he and his band were consistent local favorites, Josiah has begun to carve out a distinctive place in LA’s Silverlake music scene. Amid the sunny weather, the huge talent pool and myriad outlets for Light FM, Josiah knew he had arrived where he needed to be, and he quickly found himself working as a studio engineer and producer at some of the city’s premier recording studios. In less than two short years, Josiah found himself so sought after that he founded his own studio, the Cave. Josiah has worked with artists like Built to Spill, William Reid (Jesus and Mary Chain), The Spinto Band, Rilo Kiley, Harper Simon, and Money Mark. However, not content to be simply behind the board, Josiah knew that he had to reform the band he had started in the Windy City, and Light FM was reborn. Currently, Light FM is a five piece with Josiah Mazzaschi on lead guitars and lead vocals, Nicki Nevlin on bass, Jimmy Lucido on drums, Jen Whittenburg on guitar/vocals and Michelle Reeves on keyboards. Since the self-release of Light FM’s, “Let There Be Light FM,” the group has had enough buzz to be asked to play with Ra Ra Riot, Earlimart, Billy Corgan, Grandaddy, and many more. They also have headlined packed residencies at Spaceland and the Silverlake Lounge. Light FM is scheduled to play SXSW this March and has a new full-length album to be released later this year in the works. They will be touring in support of this new album tentatively titled, “Buzz Kill City.” Look for Light FM coming to your town later this year.
