The Lumineers

  • The Lumineers are an American folk rock band based in Denver, Colorado
  • The core band consists of Wesley Schultz on guitar and lead vocals, Jeremiah Fraites on drums, percussion, mandolin and vocals, and Neyla Pekarek on cello, mandolin, piano, and vocals, with added musicians for tours
  • Schultz and Fraites started writing songs together in the Fall of 2005
  • Originally based in Ramsey, New Jersey, they later relocated to Denver, where they met Pekarek after posting a Craigslist ad for a cellist
  • In the Spring of 2011, they signed a management deal with Onto Entertainment managers Christen Greene and David Meinert
  • Instead of the traditional route of signing a record deal and then recording an album, Onto fronted the band money to record the album they really wanted to make without the interference of label A&R, also allowing the band to own their masters
  • They recorded the album in Seattle at Bear Creek Studio with producer Ryan Hadlock (mixed in LA by Kevin Augunas at Fairfax Studio)
  • They passed up major label offers to sign a unique, very artist-friendly deal with independent label Dualtone Records
  • The album was then licensed under similar terms to Dine Alone Records in Canada, Inertia in Australia, and Decca Records for the rest of the world
  • The Lumineers have announced a tour this December opening for The Dave Matthews Band visiting Raleigh, NC, Charlottesville, VA, Baltimore, MD, Manchester, NH, Brooklyn, NY, Philadelphia, PA
