MEDIA ALERT

Listen Local First and The Pink Line Project have teamed together to support and promote DC’s talented local music scene!  Creating alternate avenues for music exploration and local music promotion is crucial to cultivating a thriving cultural community!

 ************

Lightfoot’s front woman Jessica Louise Dye is a product of the great American Southwest. A child of the valley of the sun now living inWashingtonDC, she pulls inspiration from scorching heat waves, summer drought and breathtaking sunsets into her writing. Influences of her desert upbringing can be heard in repetitive rhythms and unique instrumentation such as rain sticks and rattles. However, Dye was not always destined to be a musician. She fell into music by pure necessity. Honorably discharged from the Air Force, abandoned by her lover and forced to live out of her car for several months, Dye sought the creative process of music as a distraction that would become her salvation.

Lightfoot recently returned from a six week European tour, have played such showcases as SXSW, CMJ, REEPERBAHN, BIMAFEST and have shared the stage with acts like Lenka, Lights, Julia Nunes and Nicole Atkins.

ABOUT Pink Line Project and Listen Local First

The Pink Line Project consolidates information about everything cool and smart in the DC arts and culture scene into one place for anyone looking for something different to do that’ll make your life richer and more interesting.

Listen Local First is a local music initiative campaign launched by Think Local First (TLF), a non-profit organization, working with independent business, consumers and policymakers to grow a sustainable, local economy in DC.

The LLF initiative is devoted to building awareness and creating opportunities for local musicians and venues in order to raise the profile of DC’s local music scene.  LLF seeks to partner with local musicians, local arts organizations, local venues and locally owned businesses to create performance opportunities and new avenues for local music exploration. LLF’s mission is not genre specific.  In order to promote the true cultural depth of DC’s music scene LLF would seek to equally represent all local genres, from folk to funk.
