When David Gwaltney began to share his home recordings on MySpace, he never knew it would become what it did: a folk-rock outfit capable of pop hooks, dirty acoustic guitars, and spacey, experimental jams.


Moving from his bedroom to the stage of the Sidewalk Cafe in New York City, David continued to hone his craft. Expanding the group to his longtime friend, Chris Newton, they began to tour the southeast, busking on the streets, playing coffee shops and dives, and, later, reputable music venues. The band released their debut album, Please, in 2011.


thecitylights* are happy to currently call Knoxville their home.
