Hailing from the deep woods of northern Minnesota, Wild Horses makes a home between the traditions of folk, western, and rock music.
With roots in the Minnesota bluegrass music community, frontman Jed LaPlant draws inspiration from the simple storytelling of traditional music but offers a more dynamic and driving approach sonically. Wild Horses craft the ability to draw listeners in with both captivating melodies and a hard-hitting drive in the same live experience. Hailed as a “festival standout” by the Star Tribune, they made their Eau Claire debut as the Blue Ox Virtual Band Contest winners. Their debut record, Runaway, was released in the summer of 2022 followed by a Western US tour to bring the songs back to the place from which they were inspired.
Wild Horses' core band members are Jed LaPlant (vocals, guitar), Ariana LaPlant (vocals, keys, fiddle), McKeon Hugh Roberts (bass), and JJ Snell (drums).
