MUSIC NEWS - Lonesome Dreams, the first full-length album from rising LA-based band Lord Huron, is available now on the independent label IAMSOUND Records. Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by lead singer and Michigan native-turned-Angeleno Ben Schneider. The new record follows the Mighty EP, which Pitchfork called “an invigorating listen” and The Los Angeles Times described as “full of lush acoustic guitars and Midwestern-accented harmonies as warm as a winter fireplace.”
The debut continues to garner widespread praise—USA Today explains, “the indie-folk band paints a vivid landscape with upbeat, warm melodies and the dreamy vocals,” The New York Times described the music as, “pretty, multilayered Americana strumming and harmonizing,” and Esquire furthers they’re “the last true New Band You Need to Hear This Year.”
Lord Huron made their network television debut on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and performed on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” Additional tour dates to be announced soon. Originally a solo project by Schneider under the alter ego Lord Huron, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion), and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals).
