More about the new “LIGHTS OUT” song…

“Lights Out by J.A.M is the beginning of a band’s discography. The song carries listeners through the distinctive spectrums of any sort of heartbreak, representing anyone who has ever felt forgotten while dealing with pain, something that is as familiar as it is mysterious. Why must people experience through such agony? Why do some of us fail at listening to understand the real story? Could it be that we are unwilling to consider that some part of us needs healing first?This song is dedicated to the MMIW relief.”
