THE LUMINEERS



thelumineers.com

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 as found in the work of bands like The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes and The Head & The Heart. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics -- a raw, ragged, sound that’s full of genuine emotion, an amalgam of heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch, sing-a-long folk. The band began in New Jersey, with two long time friends Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Freitas who decided to move to Denver after the death of Jeremiah’s brother (and Wesley’s best friend) Josh died from a drug overdose at age nineteen. They immediately found cellist Neyla Pekarek and The Lumineers took shape. Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, good things are unfolding for The Lumineers.
