“It’s a testament to the interconnectedness we all share and the power of music to forge those bonds. Our name is reflective of the space and the time in which we create. Our work is undoubtedly a product of this environment. We formed Columbia Nights to help advance the art we love, and to challenge listeners to demand more from the music they engage with.”
