About The Lumineers
The Future Looks Bright for The Lumineers
The future continues to look bright for The Lumineers, who wrapped 2013 with a Platinum certification for their debut album in both the United States and Ireland, and with Gold certifications in the U.K., Australia and Canada.
By the April 2014, the band rolled its momentum straight into Record Store Day and the special release of a 10" vinyl called "The Winter EP." Though it wasn't marked as an official follow-up to their debut, the songs on both Side A ("Ain't Nobody's Problem," "This Must Be the Place") and Side B (Elouise" and "Darlene") were released for the first time in any physical format.
The following month at the BMI Pop Awards, The Lumineers captured the award for BMI Pop Song of the Year, along with the Most Performed Song of the Year award for "Ho Hey." And of course with all this hardware and accolades, it was only a matter of time before the band embarked on its biggest North American tour.
Mashed in between sets at both weekends at Coachella, the Lumineers kicked off their trek at Berkeley's Greek Theatre on April 19th. That set the stage for a run of festival appearances, like Atlanta's Shake Knee, George's Sasquatch!, Camden's XPoNential, and headline shows at Spring's The Cynthia Wood Mitchell Pavilion, Minneapolis' Target Centere and Clarkston's DET Energy Music Theatre.
The Lumineers are now in the midst of an overseas run that won't wrap until November, with stops in Norway, Japan, the Philippines, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil.
"Ho Hey" puts Lumineers in the spotlight (Created July 5, 2013)
They are one of the brightest young acts on the music scene today. In fact, some might say the upward trajectory of the Lumineers has been wonderfully illuminating, born of nothing more than a guitar and some songs by founder Wesley Schultz.
It was Schultz himself who, in the spring of 2005, began to collaborate with childhood friend Jeremiah Fraites. Eventually the two packed up and left New York, citing the city's 'cutthroat music scene' and the 'high cost of living.' They settled in Denver, Colorado and placed a Craigslist ad for a cellist. The classically trained Neyla Pakarek answered the call, and the duo became a trio.
It was the Meadowlark, a basement club in Denver, where The Lumineers really took shape. As the trio gathered to write and perform for open mic night, they refined their sound even more. Eventually, they signed a management deal with Onto Entertainment after their video for the soon-to-be smash hit "Ho Hey" hit YouTube.
An eponymous, self-recorded EP led to a self-booked tour in 2011, and before long The Lumineers had a grass-roots following that stretched across the Western half of the U.S., all the way back to the East Coast. Stelth Ulvang (piano) and Ben Wahamaki (bass) joined them full-time in 2012, just as "Ho Hey" was climbing inside the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
With sold out shows in Europe, the UK, Australia and the U.S., many Lumineers concerts have been moved to larger venues. Fanning the fervor were nominations for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album at the Grammy Awards, a nod to the melodies and soulful lyrics fans have truly fallen hard for.
