Biography

Twin lighthouses stand over Maine’s rocky coast, just south of Portland. Locals call the place Two Lights. Growing up in nearby Cape Elizabeth, brothers Abner and Harper Willis spent early years hanging out at Two Lights with friends, playing and writing songs. Years later, they regrouped in New York City to craft a new sound infused with catchy pop melodies, indie rock edge and American rock and roll. Tom Petty, Teenage Fanclub, Ben Lee, and The Lemonheads are only a few references mentioned in early reviews of their New York shows. Two Lights initially formed in Fall 2010 when fellow Mainer Ryan Gross moved to New York and joined the brothers on bass, followed in 2011 by Philadelphia's Benny Brown on drums. Since, they have played at popular NYC venues such as the Mercury Lounge, the Studio at Webster Hall, Highline Ballroom, Rockwood Music Hall, the Bowery Electric and more. Two Lights has been featured in popular blogs like Brooklyn Vegan, The Deli Magazine, Consequence of Sound and more as well as had their music on AAA, college, and streaming radio stations across the country. The band recently completed their first east coast tour and will will release their debut EP "Years Get Gone" September 25, 2012. The first single, "We Were Young", is available on iTunes now.
