Lord Huron

Lord Huron
Jessica Yurasek

What started as a solo musical and visual project of singer Ben Schneider turned into a full-fledged band in time for last year's debut LP, Lonesome Dreams. Schneider, a Los Angeles transplant from Michigan, spent school vacations on the shores of Lake Huron, which inspired the band's name and, to a degree, their sound: Lord Huron play open, atmospheric folk-rock songs with soaring melodies that sound as if they grew out of the twilight campfires of perfect summer nights by the water.
