2007 Dell's "The Sound and the Jury" finalist Blue Flashing Light is a five piece rock band from Athens, GA. Heavily influenced by U.K. acts such as U2, Oasis, Depeche Mode, and The Verve, Blue Flashing Light has carved out emotionally charged anthems with synthpop undertones.

Ian Schwarber (lead vocals), Joshua Schwarber (keyboards), Adam Monica (guitars), Ryan Cattie (bass) and J.J. Bower (drums) came together in Atlanta, GA and over the next few years focused on shaping their sound and developing as stage performers. They rehearsed diligently. Each band member matured into a contributing songwriter and collectively they created a vast catalogue of songs. The band's goal is to strike an emotional chord with their audiences by combining honest lyrics with lush sonic layers and musicianship.

In late '06 the band relocated to legendary Athens, GA., now called Blue Flashing Light (taken from the song by the U.K.’s Travis). The following year the band released their debut album "ShadowBoxing". The track "Since I Caught You" received radio play in America and abroad including spins on Atlanta's alternative rock station 99X.

The band has kept a steady performance roster having opened for acts like The Black Angels and A Fine Frenzy. Other notable performances include:

-A tour of China playing to thousands of fans ('08).
-A slot on the Athfest Mainstage ('08).
-A showcase in The Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta ('08).
-Performance slot during the Underground Atlanta Peachdrop Celebration to ring in 2009.

Blue Flashing Light has recently released their EP "The Mayor of Five Points" this past September, the follow up to "ShadowBoxing".
