Jason Lyles draws inspiration from the science fiction works of author Stephen Baxter in his newest release, “The Light”


Chattanooga native Jason Lyles‘ draws inspiration from the science fiction works of author Stephen Baxter in his newest release, “The Light.” The track weaves together a narrative about a pilot in a dystopian future who defies his fascist training, altering the course of history for humanity. While a perfect energetic and uplifting alt-rock track, the track gives listeners a sneak peak of what’s to come on Lyles’ upcoming album.

This track is some of my best work, and the one with which I’ve had the most creative freedom,” says Lyles.

The accompanying 2D stop-motion music video, animated by Jason Lyles himself and featuring paper designs by Michael Salter, brings futuristic characters and locales to life. Epic space battles at the center of the galaxy unfold, adding a visual layer to the already immersive experience.

Lyles expresses gratitude to his co-collaborators, including Gabe Lane on lead guitar, Stephanie Brooks contributing overdubs and orchestrating the string section, Spencer Lyman on keys, and Andrew Preavett handling drums, production, and mixing. Mastering by Brandon Allshouse of Steelhouse Mastering ensures a polished finish to the track.

The single is now available on major streaming platforms, with vinyl and CDs offered on Jason’s website.
