The Lumineers

The Lumineers are an American folk rock / Americana band based in Denver, Colorado. The two founding members and songwriters of the Lumineers are Wesley Schultz (lead vocals, guitar) and Jeremiah Fraites (drums, percussion). Schultz and Fraites began writing and performing together in New Jersey in 2005. Cellist and vocalist Neyla Pekarek joined the band in 2010. They emerged as one of the most popular folk rock/ Americana artists during the revival of those genres and their growing popularity in the 2010’s. The band's stripped back raw sound draws heavily from artists that influenced Schultz and Fraites such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty. They are known for their energetic live shows and several international hit singles including "Ho Hey”, “Stubborn Love”, “Ophelia” and “Cleopatra”.

The Lumineers have released two albums on independent label in the U.S. Dualtone Records (Dine Alone in Canada and Decca/ Universal worldwide). The self-titled The Lumineers (2012), which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200, has been certified triple Platinum in the US & Canada with Platinum certifications in the UK & Ireland, and Gold in Australia. Their second album Cleopatra (2016) debuted at #1 on the US Billboard top 200 album chart, and on the Canadian and British album charts, and is already certified Gold in the U.S.

The band has become one of the top touring bands in the U.S. and also sells out shows around the world.
