"By Light We Loom is a brand new 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, they 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 as well as Bonnaroo, CMJ, Bunbury, MidPoint Music Fests as well as sharing the stage with bands such as Mates of State, Sharon Van Etten, First Aid Kit, and many 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 the Midpoint Music Festival, Brite Winter Fest, NEO Cycle Music Festival, The Heights Music Hop, and opening for notable indie acts, including The Paper Kites, Telekinesis, Radiation City, The Mynabirds, Twin Forks, The Kin, Kopecky, Matt Pond PA, Frontier Ruckus, 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. Shorty after, By Light We Loom released their 2016 EP, "Caught in the Tide," which reached the top 100 on the college radio charts and is being played on over 100 college radio stations nationwide.
