Nathan Horst and Jesse Proctor initially met in 2014 and collaborated on music for film and television. Locking into a groove, the pair unveiled the Silhouettes EP during 2017 as The Light The Heat. Following a series of singles and the holiday Back to the Start EP, the band served up their full-length debut, Wide Awake, in 2020. “All For You” amassed over 5 million Spotify streams, while “Rest of Our Lives” generated north of 3.5 million streams as “Endless Story” also crossed the 1 million-mark. After hearing the title track “Wide Awake,” Nashville artist-producer Roary reached out to collaborate on what became the band’s euphoric 2021 EP Afterlight

Together, The Light The Heat assemble ponderous cinematic indie folk out of lush instrumentation, thought-provoking lyrics, and soft harmonies. For as much as the music reveals about its creators, it might just show you a thing or two about yourself.

“…a beautiful and spacious hook that helps the song become a part of you after that first listen…” –Jammerzine
