Lollapalooza Spotlight: The Lumineers
While there are many familiar names atop the 2013 Lollapalooza lineup, we’d like to further highlight an act relativity new to the spotlight – The Lumineers.
A Quick History Lesson…
While their earliest days were spent on the east coast, The Lumineers began to take their current form after a move to Denver in late 2009. It was there that founding members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites met cello player Neyla Pekarek. They soon began penning and recording songs that would eventually take the country by storm. The Lumineers’ paired a nostalgic folk sound with their knack for delivering catchy melodies and the result has been very well-received. In April 2012,the band released their self-titled debut album which was propelled to the top of the charts by hit singles “Ho Hey” and “Stubborn Love”. In addition to seeing success on the billboard charts, The Lumineers have also been a staple as one of Spotify’s most streamed bands month in and month out. With a little less than 40 minutes of official releases to their name, it’s safe to say these guys (and gal) at lot of music ahead them.
Must Hear Song: “Ho Hey”
In Their Words:
The roots revival of the last few years has primed listeners for a new generation of rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve music—the kind that nods to tradition while setting off into uncharted territory. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics
