The Lumineers

The Lumineers are an American folk rock band based in Denver, Colorado, who formed as early as 2005 but didn’t release their self-titled debut record until April of 2012.

Not to talk down the rest of The Lumineers’ first, and so far only, album, but it kind of stands as a shining example of how much of a difference one huge anthem can make for a band. It’d taken seven years from when core members Wesley Keith Schultz (lead vocals, guitar and piano) and Jeremiah Caleb Fraites (drums) first started playing together for them to actually get an album out there in the first place; they met and began making music together in Ramsey, New York, but quickly moved to Brooklyn, New York to pursue their dream of a career in music. They found the competitive environment intimidating and the cost of living prohibitive, though, so they instead decamped to Denver, Colorado, where they’d write their biggest hit to date, signature track “Ho Hey”.

It was that track that helped them to find a record deal, and it featured on their album when it was finally released in 2012. It was replete with songs, like “Ho Hey”, that feel pretty much written for the communal singalong, and accordingly they went down a storm at festivals like Reading and Leeds in the UK. The record picked them up two Grammy Award nominations, and was reissued as a deluxe edition last year; the band have since turned their attentions to the making of their follow-up.
