San Francisco songwriter Ryan Auffenberg has a mean autobiographical streak. The songs on The Bright Lights lay it all out on the table — loneliness, heartbreak, hope. Auffenberg confronts all these emotions with remarkable candor, writing stark, emotional songs and delivering them in his cracked, delicate voice.
