Crafty songwriting. Excellent playing. Deep yet accessible. Progressive pop for all.
Straight Light was a progressive rock band formed in the Kalamazoo-Grand Rapids, MI area 1973. The band was together in various versions until one month shy of 1980. In 2007, founding members Bart Garratt and Brent McDonald discussed reforming the band as a song writing experiment. 'The idea was to accomplish what we couldn't decades ago--namely, the joy of making music without record company or management intervention dictating what's acceptable for the masses.'
