Bearing Torches was formed in 2012 and is comprised of songwriter Jon Ellison, brother and guitarist Joseph Ellison, wife and drummer Jennifer Ellison. The rest of the live band is made up of accordian, organ, piano and synth players.
The material explores a tapestry of sweat and toil, victory and defeat, winners and losers. Most importantly it is about the hope that springs from day after day after day of meaningful work.
Bearing Torches is known for incredibly touching live performances. Organic, rich tones that chase the material into places well beyond the sounds captured in studio. The band strives to create a spiritual experience in every performance.
