Light, originally known as Heirborne, took Indianapolis by storm in the early 1980’s with the release of their lone LP Keys, on their Abintra Records label. Though this was their only release, Light was a very popular live band throughout much of the 80’s and it is surprising that further recordings did not materialize. The LP sold well and is relatively easy to obtain, though it has not been reissued on CD. Light’s sound was comparable to Styx and other AOR bands of the era.
There were personnel changes, reflected in the number of band members listed. Bassist John McDowell joined Light after playing in the Wright Brothers for several years. Keyboardist Jeff Lantz went on to do session work and plays keyboards on Beach Boy Brian Wilson’s 2015 solo release No Pier Pressure. Drummer Steve Walker also did session work for Sharon Redd, Skip Mahoney and the Casuals, and others.
