This live session was filmed and recorded live-off-the-floor in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on May 11, 2013. Captured in one take at Central Baptist Church (the recording location for Tyler's 2011 EP, You Can't Keep the Sun Down) it features an impressive cast of musicians from Edmonton's music scene, including members of Faunts, The Whitsundays, Cantoo, Renny Wilson, and Artisan Loyalist. Footage was captured using a professional camera and stationary iPhones.
The song "City Lights" is the opening track on Tyler's 2012 EP LIGHTS. It was featured in an episode of the TNT medical drama Monday Mornings in March 2013. You can listen to the album version by clicking here.
