About Lord Huron

By design, Lord Huron have a sound as big as the great outdoors—the band’s music brings to mind desert sunsets, snow-capped mountains and two-lane roads cutting through the Midwestern plains. Led by Michigan native Ben Schneider, the Los Angeles-based group emerged on record in 2010, just after Fleet Foxes had rekindled the indie world's interest in harmony-drenched folk-rock. Alongside peers like Local Natives, Lord Huron took the scene’s core elements—layered voices, expansive reverb, guitar jangles, pastoral lyrics—and added memorable shout-along choruses on tracks like the triumphant “Meet Me in the Woods”. While early Lord Huron EPs sounded raw and focused on loops, thanks to Schneider’s homemade recording technique, the project grew more polished without losing its rustic charm when he assembled a full band for 2012’s Lonesome Dreams. The outfit’s cinematic qualities, bolstered by Schneider’s training as a visual artist, weren’t lost on music supervisors, either—they’ve been featured in several movies and shows, with “The Night We Met” charting globally after soundtracking a key scene of the teen drama 13 Reasons Why. Their graduation to bigger sales and stages hasn’t altered Lord Huron’s earthy tone, though—they’re as grounded as ever and connecting with more and more fans around the world, in locales both remote and urban.
