At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, My Mother the Moon, a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.
Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.
Described by NPR Music as "evocative, empathetic storytelling," My Mother the Moon earned a spot in No Depression's "Best Roots Music Albums of 2018" list, and Rolling Stone Country declared the Wisconsin-based duo an "Artist You Need to Know."
Jerrika Mighelle will be opening for Dead Horses!
Wisconsin singer/songwriter Jerrika Mighelle, formerly of sister folk trio QuinnElizabeth, released her first solo album “Like the Sea” in January of 2017. This album has been described as a weighty and atmospheric gem, rife with raw emotions and existential longing. She toured regionally for a year and a half gaining attention for her haunting vocals and charming stage presence. Jerrika’s tunes have been featured on radio stations across the region including Eau Claire’s own Converge Radio, and NPR’s Simply Folk. She is currently working on her second studio album, recording with Evan Middlesworth at Pine Hollow Studios. Also, she can be heard every Thursday at 5 pm on 99.9 Converge Radio as she hosts her own women centric radio show called “Tunes From the Womb”.
