Nor should there be. You don’t need to abide by any rules when you’re sitting on a roster brimming with more talent than a dinner party at Johnny Carson’s. From the dreamy chords of Louise Burns, to the electrifying musical instincts of Adaline, or the warm songs of Sun Wizard, Light Organ (although comparatively and admittedly fresh) hasn’t missed yet and doesn’t look like it’s about to.
The label is appropriately youthful, from the staff to the artists, because that’s who records have traditionally belonged to, and since 2010 Light Organ has stayed true to its original ideals of signing and presenting the best in raw, west coast pop. Beginning with its flagship release of the Our First Christmas compilation, the label has worked with the growing roster of artists to create a watermark for burgeoning success, and this year with new releases expected from The Zolas, We Need Surgery, Mode Moderne and others, Light Organ Records appears set to find an even higher water level.
Brand Ambassador/Project Manager
Just hitting my productive stride while everyone else is crashing because I’m the only one who doesn’t drink coffee.
Those days when the boss DJs the office with his iTunes. His collection of secret hits from the 70s and 80s never stops being impressive.
1992 Blue Jays World Champions mug, six Raveonettes posters, two Slumberland posters, one Frank Black gig poster, two hatchprints from Nashville, and a giant photo of Chad Kroeger holding up nug of weed from a High Times shoot. Oh, and it’s the tidiest.
The time the CBC called and tried to get “Chavril” information out of me and got incredibly frustrated with my polite but stern Chinese wall.
Cassette: RUN DMC Tougher Than Leather CD: Ugly Kid Joe America’s Least Wanted Record: Cheech and Chong Big Bambu. Side notes: the Ugly Kid Joe CD was the first album for every member of my family because as we individually got CD players, we gifted the album to each other immediately. Also, I still own the Cheech and Chong album and it still has the rolling paper in it that holds 4 ounces of weed, but when I was little I thought it was just a “really thin poster”.
When I was young I thought in “Hold Me Now” by One 2 One she was saying “Oh Nina” and singing about my friend Michael’s mum, Nina.
Project Manager & Licensing
You can’t find me. I challenge you to try.
It’s invisibly suspended and has a retractable bridge out to it like the one they keep Magneto in.
Whitesnake – Greatest Hits on cassette.
Man, it’s all been forgiven, Swans are a-swimmin’, I’ll explain everything to the geese. The National – “Vanderlyle Cry Baby Geeks (not geese)”.
‘Hey you’ though, I prefer ‘Mrs. Ryan Kesler’
Secretly eating snacks I’ve hoarded and stuffed into my desk drawers.
Co-workers like to bring snacks. And I like to eat snacks.
When I offered to fish-sit for a co-worker and then forgot about it over a long-weekend.
I bought Ace of Base’s The Sign and TLC’s Crazy, Sexy, Cool on the same shopping trip. I was musically confused as a child.
Eagles – “Desperado”
“Oooooh you’re an aardvark, I know that you’ve got your reasons.”
(I was admittedly watching a lot of the cartoon Arthur at the time.)
Heading to detention.
Free CD’s… hahaha….fart noise, etc.
Smells like pesto.
That time I thought what I did for a living really mattered.
Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player by Elton John.
“Jeremiah was a dickhead.” – Joy to the World
Project & Tour Manager
Sof’s / Sofa
Snack time with co-workers.
I have a creepy Matt Webb painting hanging on one side of my cubicle wall, and a self-portrait of Kaitlyn on the other.
Too many to choose from, but perhaps ‘The Placenta Conversation’.
Take That – Back For Good
Tina Arena “Chains”
Actually Lyric: ” Echo off these dungeon walls”
I always thought it was “Echo off Jane Danson walls”
Jane Danson was an actress from British soap opera Coronation Street. She appeared on the reality show “Stars in their Eyes”, which was a musical talent show in which amateur lookalikes and soundalikes impersonate their favourite singing stars. Somehow I got them muddled up…
Touring & Funding Manager.
Dyllan/Shipley/Ships/D-Bo/McLovin the Irish R&B singer.
Looking at food porn… and at 4 in the afternoon, and so on.
They still haven’t found out yet.
It comes equipped with the controls to make my co-workers either freeze to death, or burn alive! I’m fresh to the space, so give me a bit to make it more homely, and then I’ll give a better description.
When Kaitlyn told me that my most important task of the day (as an intern) was to listen to The Strokes on repeat.
Van Halen – 1984
Tina Turner “What’s Love Got Do Do With It”
“What’s love, but a second hand in motion”
Actual lyric: “What’s love, but a second hand emotion”
Megan, Meagan, Meegan, or some other variation of my name.
Working hard, duh.
Women and Songs Fridays. Alternatively named Lilith Fair Fridays.
Having to regularly educate my younger coworkers about birth control and the reproductive system.
The first CD I bought for myself was “Tragic Kingdom” by No Doubt.
I always thought Beyonce was singing “Hate Love” instead of “Halo”. I would sing along thinking it was some sort of angsty female anthem. It wasn’t.
