Hailing from the deep woods of northern Minnesota, Wild Horses is quickly becoming one of the regions hottest rising folk bands.
With roots in the Minnesota bluegrass music community, frontman Jed LaPlant draws inspiration from the simple storytelling of traditional music, but through Wild Horses offers a more dynamic and driving approach sonically.
They’ve often been compared to bands like Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Gregory Alan Isakov due to their ability to draw listeners in with both captivating melodies and a hard-hitting drive in the same live experience.
Wild Horses seeks to convey the unbridled heart of the Wild West in their music. Through time spent in its wide open spaces and often unforgiving nature, the band offers intimate knowledge of the need to move forward no matter what terrain lies ahead. Their debut record, Runaway, will be released in the summer of 2022.
Wild Horses’ core consists of Jed LaPlant (vocals, guitar), Ariana LaPlant (vocals, keys, fiddle), McKeon Hugh Roberts (bass), and JJ Snell (drums).
