Indie folk-rockers Lord Huron have wowed at concerts across North America, including massive festivals Coachella and Bonnaroo, with hits from their intimate and critically acclaimed Western-themed debut album Lonesome Dreams. Pulling the crowd into an acutely harmonized set that radiates the power of musicians who perfectly play-off of each other's chords, the band hits the road again in January 2014 for their headlining North American tour which ends in early March at their home in Los Angeles. Fronted by lead singer Ben Schneider, Lord Huron offers a well-formulated sound that pierces with Schneider's haunting vocals, as heard in their hit track "Time to Run."
Relocating from Michigan to Los Angeles, Schneider initially started Lord Huron as a solo project before expanding it to include five members. Upon returning to Michigan and spending time along Lake Huron's shores, Schneider began to make sense of his musical prowess and develop the three songs that would make up Lord Huron's first EP. Releasing a total of three EPs in 2010, including Mighty, which Pitchfork rated as 8/10, this band has seen a quick climb to success. After heavily touring in 2011, the band continued to garner critical praise and released their first music video for single "The Stranger." By incorporating a folk-Western flavor in both their music and videos, which include scenes of moonlit canyons and the use of several acoustic guitars, ticket holders are provided with a captivating series of songs that are layered in both sound and effect. Lord Huron is celebrated for their open and honest approach to both songwriting and performance. When it comes to Lord Huron, expect a cowboy-infused folk-rock show you can stomp your feet too and hum for days after.
