Frontman of beloved Montreal indie institution the Dears performs the vulnerable, deep-soul from his new solo project Hear Me Out. Musically inspired by ‘60s girl groups, Motown, and soulful romantic crooners, Lightburn states, “I’m not really hearing or seeing that kind of stuff from guys that look like me these days. In Canada, not at all. Perhaps I can fill that void.”

"Lightburn evokes...Scott Walker produced by the early-Seventies Curtis Mayfield... with the vulnerable, urgent songwriting and deep-soul flair” - David Fricke (Rolling Stone)
