Lights Bokan (born Valerie Anne Poxleitner on April 11, 1987) is a Canadian electropop musician, singer, and songwriter. . .
Lights was born Valerie Anne Poxleitner in Timmins, Ontario. As the daughter of missionary parents she spent her childhood in many parts of the world, including the Philippines, Jamaica, Ontario, and British Columbia. She moved to Toronto at the age of 18 when she legally changed her name to Lights. She got the nickname "Lights" from her last name Poxleitner. She got her name legally changed, because there was already a signed band named "Lights", so the only way she could keep her stage name was to get it legally changed to her name.
