Illiterate Light at The Room at Cedar Grove

August 24, 2023

Illiterate Light is a versatile, Virginia-based duo with a vagabond spirit and a resolute D.I.Y. work ethic. Emerging in the late 2010s, the group draws from a wide array of styles, from raw, guitar-driven indie rock and kaleidoscopic neo-psychedelia to synth-kissed, harmony-laden folk. They issued their self-titled debut in 2019, followed by Sunburned in 2023. 

The project originated in the Shenandoah Valley in 2010, when multi-instrumentalists Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran began playing music together while working on an organic farm. They eventually took over the farm themselves, where they combined their love of art and agriculture into a rich community, touring by bicycle and building a loyal local following.
