For a band that has had such a large impact on pop culture for the last decade, Lord Huron has remained under-the-radar of many music listeners. Starting out in Michigan as the brainchild of Ben Schneider, a multi-talented artist, Lord Huron has become a hugely influential indie rock band whose music has appeared in numerous films, commercials, television shows, and in series for NBC, The CW, Netflix, HBO, and Showtime. Their songs have also appeared on music charts worldwide.
Based out of their own Whispering Pines studio in Los Angeles, California, Lord Huron – now composed of Schneider and his former high school bandmates – continue to generate wonderfully inventive music. Accompanied by Ben Schneider’s artwork and multimedia creations such as the collection of live-streamed shows called Alive from Whispering Pines, the band takes us on a fictional journey into the storied past of Whispering Pines studio and music from a bygone era.
In this Derringer Discoveries episode, the Derringer Brothers – Alton and Paul – explore Lord Huron’s latest album, Long Lost, and share their favorite album tracks. They’ll also share their thoughts on whether Lord Huron has taken their latest concept album too far. Did they Jump the Shark? Did they Cross the Rubicon? You’ll have to listen to find out.
Be sure to stick around for the Post-Episode Bonus where Paul and Alton introduce you to a talented singer-songwriter named Katie Tich (pronounced “tish”) out of Baltimore, Maryland. Katie was kind enough to join the Derringer Brothers for an exclusive interview where she shares how she got her start in music and provided insight into her heartfelt and emotional lyrics.
