Biography

By Light We Loom, a husband and wife indie-pop duo out of Cleveland, Ohio, combines creative beats, vintage synths, soaring vocals, and intimate harmonies with story-folk songwriting sensibilities to deliver high-energy performances that promise to move your heart and feet in equal measures.

Shanna Delaney (vocals & loops) and Eric Ling (guitar & vocals) followed up their successful run leading the six piece indie-folk band, Bethesda, by working to harness the power of loops, beats, and synthesizers to craft a wholly new and unique sound that beckons you to dance and sing along.

Since it’s origin in late 2014, By Light We Loom has toured heavily with highlight stops at MidPoint Music Festival, Brite Winter Festiveal, NEO Cycle Music Festival, The Heights Music Hop, and opening for notable indie acts: The Paper Kites, Car Seat Headrest, Maps & Atlases, Telekinesis, Lucy Dakus,  Sondre Lerche, Deep Sea Diver, The Mynabirds, Twin Forks, The Kin, Kopecky, Radiation City, Matt Pond PA, Frontier Ruckus, and more.

By Light We Loom released their debut EP, “The Ignition,” in May of 2015 to critical acclaim and local radio play.  Maturing their sound through live performances, they quickly released a more realized EP, “Caught in the Tide,” in January of 2016. “Caught in the Tide” received nationwide radio play, landing the album in the Top 100 of the College Radio Charts.  The success of this album resulted in By Light We Loom being named Cleveland Magazine’s “Best Indie Rock Artist of 2016”. Songs from “Caught in the Tide” were also featured in episodes of PBS’s “Roadtrip Nation” in 2017 and 2018.

Currently, By Light We Loom is in the studio putting the finishing touches on their third EP, which promises to be another big step forward for the band and is scheduled for a Fall 2018 release.
