The GRAMMY-nominated DENVER-based stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk band played favorites from their self-titled debut album such as "Ho Hey," as well as new songs from their sophomore album, "Cleopatra," which came out today. THE LUMINEERS even played a cover of "Subterranean Homesick Blues" before band member JEREMIAH FRAITES ended the concert with a solo performance on the piano.
When his HARMS asked if the band felt pressure for their second album after such a successful first album release, WESLEY SCHULTZ spoke about how he really felt pressure for the first album because it was the first time they had stepped into a studio. SCHULTZ explained that "Ophelia" was the first song that they finished in the whole process, and it gave them the momentum to move forward. The band also talked about PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA being a fan of their music, and adding "Stubborn Love" to his SPOTIFY playlist.
