Biography

"By Light We Loom is a husband-wife indie-pop duo from Cleveland that writes beautiful, mysterious pop tunes drenched in atmospheric guitars and soaring vocals...(their) mysterious brand of mother-earth-pop is bound to earn itself legions of followers." - Aputumpu

As a husband and wife team, By Light We Loom spent the better part of a decade leading the indie-folk band Bethesda as it toured the Midwest, highlighted by stops at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bonnaroo, CMJ, Bunbury, and MidPoint Music Fests as well as sharing the stage with talented bands, such as Mates of State, Sharon Van Etten, First Aid Kit, 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 August 2014), By Light We Loom has lined up a notable touring schedule highlighted by stops at festivals, such as MidPoint Music Fest, Brite Winter Fest, and Burning River Fest, and has opened for notable indie acts, including Twin Forks, The Kin, Kopecky, Matt Pond PA, Telekinesis, Say Hi, The Mynabirds, Radiation City, Deep Sea Diver, Telekinesis, and more.

Excited about the new direction, By Light We Loom immediately entered the studio and came out with their debut single, "The Ignition," followed by the release of their debut EP, "The Ignition," in May 2015, which has received outstanding reviews and received local radio play. With the release of their 2nd EP, "Caught in the Tide," in early 2016 and many exciting show dates, By Light We Loom promises to have much more in store for fans and newcomers alike in 2016.

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!
