Music of my Heart: The Lumineers

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — lara @ 12:12 am

Although my true passions in life include reading, writing, television and film,  music is what moves me most. Nothing changes my day like a song. I can be in a very hyper mood, but if a song with deep lyrics or a soft ballad comes on, I become a new person, a calm person.

A couple of months ago I heard this song. I can’t explain the feeling I had when I heard it, but I can compare it to the first time I had a crush on a boy in kindergarten. (Yes, I know kindergarten is young but what can I say? I was ahead of my age.) Once I heard this song I immediately downloaded the  rest of this band’s music. The band’s name is the Lumineers. I thought that one song, “Ho Hey” was good? Well when I heard the rest of their songs I knew that I had just found my new favorite band, the one I would one day tell my kids about.

A little background about the band:

There are three members

 

Wesley Schultz
Jeremiah Fraites
Neyla Pekarek

The band is originally from Ramsey, NJ. Their genre of music is a mix of Indie and Folk. In the last two months they have been in Blue Moon’s commercial, a Bing commercial and their song “Ho Hey” is now very familiar to radio play.  You can also buy their album at Starbucks, which I did two days ago even though I already have them downloaded.

I hope this amazing band moves you as much as it did me. I’ve attached a few links below for your ears.
