Cocoa Jackson Lane and Brite Lite Brite will perform 50-minute sets at the Boston Ahts Festival. Each group has a unique style, from soul with elements of reggae to electronic.

Brite Lite Brite: 3:00 p.m. - 3:50 p.m.

Brite Lite Brite, made up of award-winning singer-songwriter Andrea Stankevitch and electronics master Luke Johnson, both alumni of Berklee, has taken live electronic music production and performance to new levels by creating innovative technologies and techniques for live sound design and real-time production.

Brite Lite Brite's musical highlights include winning the grand prize electronica category in the 2007 John Lennon Songwriting contest for "Sky Turns Red," as well as earning semifinalist placement in the 2008 and 2011 International Songwriting Competition for "Now that You're Around" and "Radioactive Love," and winning the grand prize electronic category and second overall contest winner for "I Lost My Heart Tonight" in the 2010 100% Music Songwriting Contest. 
Additionally, Brite Lite Brite was selected to play Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2010 by thousands of voters and Virgin Mobile’s panel of judges in the Book the Band contest opening for headliners M.I.A., Joan Jett, Matt & Kim, LCD Soundsystem, and Ludacris. Brite Lite Brite is currently in the studio recording their second album, Stalker, coming soon. Brite Lite Brite will also be performing at Lollapalooza this summer on Aug. 2, 2013.


Cocoa Jackson Lane: 4:00 p.m. - 4:50 p.m.

Cocoa Jackson Lane combines gritty soul with roots and reggae. Hailing from the Pacific, South East Asia, and Barcelona, this eclectic outfit instinctively delivers an honest and raw performance. Fronted by the vivacious Jess Harlen and directed by bassist Camilla Charlesworth, Cocoa Jackson Lane seamlessly ranges from heart-wrenching delicacy to hard-hitting dancehall.
