Your favourite morning breakfast show got a chance to chat with the band’s lead singer Wesley Schultz.

The Lumineers formed back in 2005, with founding members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites, the beautifully talented, cellist and vocalist Neyla Pekarek then came and joined the band in 2010. The band has been credited with helping revive the folk rock genre, with hits suchas ‘Ho Hey’, ‘Stubborn Love’ and ‘Cleopatra’, with their sell-out shows the world over. Their self titled debut album which was released in 2012, peaked at Number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and spent 46 weeks on the chart, it was certified triple Platinum.


Their second album Cleopatra which was released last year, debuted at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and has already been certified Gold. The Lumineers will be part of the guest acts for legendary Irish rock band U2’s ‘Joshua Tree Tour 2017’, for their American part of the tour. The band is now solidifying itself as one of the best independent bands around.
