Dead Horses

Milwaukee-based folk band Dead Horses have cultivated a soulful roots sensibility beyond their years due to the powerful literary and musical force that is frontwoman and songwriter, Sarah Vos.

Raised on Bible Hymns by her preacher father, Vos’ backstory sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Vos & collaborative artist and bassist Daniel Wolff have crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by early-American prose as it is modern Americana music.
