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), BLWL 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 The Mountain Goats, Twin Forks, The Kin, Kopecky, Matt Pond PA, Telekinesis, Say Hi, The Mynabirds, Radiation City, Deep Sea Diver, Telekinesis, Car Seat Headrest, Lucy Dacus, and more.
Excited about the new direction, BLWL 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 received outstanding reviews and received local radio play. BLWL's 2nd EP, "Caught in the Tide," released in 2016, has received tremendous reviews and recently received national airplay on college radio stations, charting in the top 100 on the college radio charts.
