History[edit] Edit

At the end of 1982, Paul Hardcastle and Derek Green founded the band First Light. They released 4 singles and two albums. Although they worked only for a year together, their most known work was "Explain the Reasons".

After their 2nd and last album, Hardcastle and Green had a big conflict about the money, but they also had no more musical material for future releases. As a result, Green moved to other projects and Hardcastle pursued a solo career.

In 1989, Hardcastle resumed working on First Light. He wrote for and produced the project on his own. Kevin Henry was the featuring vocalist and together they released 4 singles.
