hello world ❤
i am writing on behalf of cloudlight, and so i am speaking more softly now…for some reason we got in the habit of using lowercase and no exclamations for our band, and it just feels right (spotify calls it Cloudlight, but we’ll be correcting that soon).
anyway, this has nothing to do with jessica in the rainbow, except that i – jessica – write songs for cloudlight too. and sing. and play keyboard. but cloudlight is a band made up of bryan ralph (songwriting-vocals-guitar), trav allen aka siiuh (drums), mackenzie carlson (electric mandolin-guitar), and myself.
we are going on our first tour very soon (<3 ❤ <3) here are some details for each date. i will update the info as often as i can, with event links, addresses, etc.
