Band of Horses

A seriously awesome Rock Band.

Band of Horses, is an American Rock band from Seattle. Since forming in 2004 these boys have released four albums, the most recent being "Mirage Rock" in September of this year.

The band, formed of Mat Brooke, Bridwell, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey, Bill Reynolds and Creighton Barrett received the greatest success in 2010 with the grammy nominated album "Infinite Arms." I first became aware of this band many years ago when I heard their single "The Funeral" (see below) feature on an episode of One Tree Hill. This track is one of those songs that no matter how much you listen to it, it never gets old. From this single I was eager to hear the rest of the bands music,  and I was in no way left disappointed.

Similar artists to Band of Horses include; The Shins, My Morning Jacket, Iron and Wine, and Mumford and Sons.

With any band that has been together for a long time, these boys are well practiced live performers,  resulting in some serious superb show. A tight knit group with a huge fan base, it comes as no surprise that Band of Horses play to sell out crowds.  With an endless list of great tracks you can be sure of an enjoyable night of live entertainment.
