Siberia Acoustic is her second stripped down and self-produced offering. In 2010, she released Lights. Acoustic., the lo-fi companion to 2009’s The Listening.

From the PR: “It’s really special the way just a guitar and vocal speaks to the heart, an intimacy that a lot of production can’t convey quite the same way,” said Lights, aka Valerie Poxleitner. “There is a time and a place for each, Siberia in its full form was a different kind of journey than this acoustic record, but this is the version of the songs I sit down and play at home when I’m alone.”
