Who are the Wight lighters?

In 2016, three Oklahoma natives came together with one common goal in mind—to create no-nonsense music with an appeal factor for the masses. Dwight Hamlin, Joniel Prouty, and Derek Carothers released their first project as Wight Lighters in 2016 and they haven’t slowed down since. With guitar influences from The Rolling Stones and 80’s rock bands like Skid Row combined with the soulfulness of the likes of Eric Clapton, it’s no wonder this band has a sound that is getting them on show bills with a diverse list of acts, from Whiskey Myers to Chase Rice, and with that, the band is certainly living up to their goal. Their music has spread like wildfire as they’ve caught the attention of loyal music fans in their home state and beyond. The band is set to release their next project in the fall of 2019 which is certain to send their careers to the next level.
