Rock duo, Illiterate Light, have an eclectic background that is reflected in their music. Floating between postmodern confusion and vibrant, life-affirming optimism, Illiterate Light’s Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran allow their pasts—which includes running an organic farm, touring the mid-Atlantic by bicycle, and living in small communities while pursing alternative education—to inform their sound. Gritty guitar melodies, honest lyrics, explosive energy and a rigorous tour schedule are just a few of the many reasons why Illiterate Light has a bright future ahead of them. Their debut LP is set for release on Atlantic Records this year and is being produced by Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings of Leon, Chris Stapleton) and Adrian Olsen (Foxygen, Natalie Prass). Their most recent EP, Sweet Beast, is the first taste of what’s to come for this promising act.
