Denver folk-rock trio The Lumineers first came to attention in 2011, after their eponymous, self-recorded EP led to a self-booked tour, and before long started attracting devout fans, first across the Western US, then back in their old East Coast stamping grounds. Young, old and in-between, they’re drawn by songs like ‘Ho Hey’ – the number one Billboard Top Rock song, which has graced our screens in television shows from The Vampire Diaries to The Office, and gathered over 12 million YouTube hits. Locally, the track has been a hit at radio, with Nova, Triple M, Triple J and community radio nationally getting behind this infectious tune. With Americana-inflected barnburners in the vein of the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, to the slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations of Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams, the pinnacle of The Lumineers is their live experience – a coming-together in musical solidarity against isolation, adversity, and despair.
