In Tune: Band of Horses

Band of Horses

Some artists seem to magically orchestrate songs that are custom made for movies, television shows or better even, the soundtracks to our lives. While the mellow songs seem to fit the mood for either tender or depressing moments, the upbeat tunes get your adrenaline pumping and seem to bring a smile to your face that is hard to erase. Charleston, S.C.-based Band of Horses seems to have found that secret equation that makes the songs adaptable, and yet perfect, for certain moments in life.

When Band of Horses frontman Ben Bridwell moved to Seattle in the late 1990s to embark on his music career, he probably never imagined he would be relocating his successful and up-and-coming indie rock band back to his home state of South Carolina a few years after its quick start. After being immersed in the rising indie rock scene of Seattle while touring with the band Carissa's Weird, Bridwell initiated his own act with Band of Horses. While garnering attention by opening for other rising artists such as Iron & Wine, Band of Horses was signed by Sub Pop Records with the release of its debut album, Everything All the Time.

With a few member changes early on combined with the drastic move to the East Coast, Bridwell has put together a solid lineup of talented musicians who all contribute to the song-writing process, even featuring lead vocals from band members Ryan Monroe and Tyler Ramsey at times. As they continue to enjoy their rising success, being nominated for a Grammy Award with 2010's Infinite Arms, they have managed to maintain their popular dreamy, mid-tempo indie rock style, even with the recent release of Mirage Rock.

In the midst of the Railroad Revival Tour with Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson, Band of Horses will make a pit stop for a much-anticipated concert in Chattanooga at Track 29 on Friday, Oct. 12.
