No band has help put the Denver music scene on the map over the past year quite like the Lumineers. Wes Schultz and his band of Great-Depression-era-garb-pop-folk gypsies seemed to appear out of thin air in the second half of 2011. It was club dates at first, South by Southwest buzz next, a pair of sold out shows at the Bluebird Theater after that, then Red Rocks and beyond…
A national tour. Festival appearances around the country. Late-night talk show performances (“Letterman” earlier this week). Licensing music for film and TV. The single that drove it all, “Ho Hey,” was just certified platinum, and the self-titled debut album may reach gold status by year’s end.
The Lumineers came into Uneven Studio several months ago to record four live takes of songs from that same monstrous album, including “Ho Hey.” We’re proud to present this session to you, our readers, and proud of the national success that Colorado continues to produce.
