ILLITERATE LIGHT

Illiterate Light has been stretching boundaries and upending expectations with a
captivating blend of soaring indie rock, swirling psychedelia, and atmospheric folk that
calls to mind everything from Neil Young and My Morning Jacket to Fleet Foxes and
Band of Horses. Recorded with producers Adrian Olsen (Foxygen, Natalie Prass) and
Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings Of Leon, Chris Stapleton), the record is blissful and
ecstatic, with a mix of raw electric guitars, propulsive drums, and shimmering harmonies
that showcases the band’s remarkable live setup—Gorman plays guitar with his hands
and synth bass with his feet, while his musical partner, Jake Cochran, plays a standupdrum kit, which captures the scintillating energy that’s fueled their journey.

Gorman and Cochran first met while attending college in Harrisonburg, VA, where theydiscovered a shared passion for sustainable living and community building. Aftergraduation, they took over a local organic farm, spending their days tending crops andworking farmer’s markets and their nights performing anywhere they could land (ormake) a gig. Dubbing themselves the Petrol Free Jubilee Carnival Tour, the pair wouldoften tour the region on their bikes, sometimes joined by as many as two-dozen othercyclists and artists, performing at coffee houses, street corners, rock clubs, and
off-the-grid communities.

Hailed as “a perfect addition to your summertime playlist” by NPR, the band honed in ontheir distinctive sound and identity over years of relentless touring, earning dates alongthe way with the likes of Shakey Graves, Rayland Baxter, Mt. Joy, Rainbow Kitten
Surprise, Futurebirds, and The Head and The Heart in addition to high-profile festival
slots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk, and more.
