Biography

Seattle, Washington, United States (2004 – present)

Band of Horses, known early in its life simply as Horses, is an Indie band formed in Seattle, Washington, United States. The band’s lineup has changed multiple times, and the current lineup consists of Ben Bridwell (vocals, guitar), Ryan Monroe (guitar, keyboards), Tyler Ramsay (keyboards, guitar), Bill Reynolds (bass) and Creighton Barrett (drums). The band is currently based in Charleston, South Carolina and has released four albums to date: “Everything All the Time” (2006), “Cease to Begin” (2007), “Infinite Arms” (2010), and “Mirage Rock” (2013).

Band of Horses was formed by Ben Bridwell (guitar, vocals) and Mat Brooke (guitar) in 2004 after the break-up of their previous band, Carissa’s Wierd. Rob and Creighton were formerly of the mathrock band The New Mexicans before joining Band of Horses. The group initially got attention from Sub Pop Records after opening for Iron & Wine in Seattle area shows. In 2005, the band released their debut EP, Band Of Horses Tour EP, which was sold exclusively at shows and on Sub Pop’s website. Their debut full-length, Everything All the Time was recorded in 2005 with producer Phil Ek and released on March 21, 2006 to generally good reviews.

On July 13, 2006, Band of Horses appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman sans Brooke. As of July 25, 2006, Mat Brooke left Band of Horses to focus more on his other band, Grand Archives, who had also signed to Sub Pop.

    The band has been getting worse and worse with each new release. [2] It's unfortunate. 'Everything All the Time' and 'Cease to Begin' are both fantastic albums.

    I feel melancholic when I listen to them because I used to love them when I was 14, and of course I still love them.

    Já havia me esquecido do quão importante e significativa (pra mim) era (e é) a referência 'Band Of Horses'. Bem como, do porquê desta ser uma minhas bandas prediletas... Band Of Horses é em toda a sua essencia a representação pura e exata daquilo que há tempos apelidamos 'Arte'. Acho até que eu nunca agradeci o bastante a "OTH" or me apresentar tal trabalho. De ter dado a mim, bem como a outros, a oportunidade de conhecer e admirar o universo "Band Of Horsiano" . Diria até que, graças a esse novo aglomerado de virtuosas versões do álbum 'Acoustic At The Ryman' pude trazer a tona, de maneira singular, diversas lembranças que se enclausuraram dentro da morbides vocal de suas faixas, que, de forma instrumental, padece das mesmas qualidades ¬¬|. Em suma, Obrigado!

    I am glad Pitchfork\s gig last year was great but it has always sucked before that. I hope they choose better line-up this year.
