Biography

By Light We Loom is a indie-pop duo from Cleveland, OH combines creative beats, vintage synths, soaring vocals, and intimate harmonies with story-folk songwriting sensibilities to craft songs that promise to move your heart and feet in equal measures!  As a husband and wife team, they spent the better part of a decade leading the indie-folk band Bethesda as it toured the Midwest, highlighted by stops at Bonnaroo, CMJ, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bunbury, and more.  

Following the end of Bethesda, Shanna (vocals &  loops) and Eric (guitars & vocals) found that their appetite for making and sharing music was far from satisfied.  Armed with the power of loop technology and the excitement of a new challenge, they went to work crafting a wholly new and unique sound that engages the listener and beckons you to sing along.

Even in its short duration (founded in July, 2014), By Light We Loom has lined up an notable fall tour highlighted by stops at the MidPoint Music Festival, NEO Cycle Music Festival,  and The Heights Music Hop.  With Fall of 2014 and winter dates in the works, By Light We Loom promises to have much more in store for fans and newcomers alike in 2015

Lyrics

The Ignition

Written By: By light We Loom

Look up, look up
See the velvet color of the moon
Pray child, pray now
Demons render useless what was good
Listen closely - trumpets soon will rattle silent nights
Justice tears us - oh, it’s gonna make it - it makes it right
Follow the writing

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation
oh a revelation!

Danger, danger
See the cliff is closer than it seems
Clear now, clear now
Everything that's sacred loses sheen
Listen closely hear the silence suffocate the night
Forgive you father? You can never make it - can't make it right
Follow the writing

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation oh a revelation!

Distant father
Further than the sinking gulf
Digging bunkers
Settled to absorb the loss
Sleep now, sleep child
Dreams are where the lion calls
Embrace me father - find in me the "ever lost"

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation
oh a revelation!
