Band Of Horses Biography

Guitarist+vocalist Ben Bridwell and bassist Mat Brooke formed Band Of Horses in Seattle, Washington USA, in 2004 after the dissolution of their nearly ten-year run in the Northwest Indie Folk-Rock quintet Carissa's Wierd. They later recruited guitarist+bassist Rob Hampton and drummer Creighton Barrett to form a full-time touring band.

Released in March of 2006 on SubPop Records, Band of Horses' debut "Everything All The Time" made good on the promise hinted at in their early shows and demos reaching #31 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart. The band went from from early live performances, to playing on The Late Show with David Letterman by July and being nominated as one of ten finalists, along with the eventual winner Cat Power, for the Shortlist Music Prize for that same year. The record was well-received critically, with celebratory press in Spin, The New York Times, Billboard, NME and a slew of others; not a bad place to start, but Brooke nevertheless left the line-up that same summer.

For core members Bridwell, Hampton and Barrett, there has been a move from Seattle, to Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, a relocation that had been planned for some time so that they could all be closer to their families. Band Of Horses released its sophomore effort "Cease To Begin", in October 2007 reaching #1 on U.S. Top Independent Albums chart and the top 40 of The Billboard 200 list.
