Lite’s Review Room – Lumineers
Two years ago no one had heard of The Lumineers, and now they’re selling out shows all over the planet and were nominated for two Grammy awards. The band was originally 3 members, playing around New York City, but they moved to Denver and found two more members through a Craig’s List ad. Their first big publicity came when the song “Ho Hey” was featured in an episode of the CW show “Hart of Dixie.” The song eventually peaked at #3, yet sold over 2 million copies. They recently played Saturday Night Live, and are in the middle of a completely sold-out tour of Europe, then Australia. They’ll head to the U.S. and Canada this April. Their self-titled first album has been certified gold.
