Masterminded and founded by vocalist/guitarist Ben Schneider, Lord Huron began as a solo project and the first few EPs under the moniker were recorded entirely by Schneider.

Steadily adding members to help play live shows, Lord Huron eventually released their debut full-length album “Lonesome Dreams” on Oct. 9, 2012.
The band’s lineup currently consists of Schneider (pictured), Mark Barry (drums), Miguel Briseno (bass), Tom Renaud (guitar) and touring members Brandon Walters (guitar) and Anne Williamson (keyboards).

With the release of “Lonesome Dreams,” the band also slowly released a series of music videos, all filmed in a western '70s style, which Schneider says was the focal point and narrative for the album.

“We had this fun idea that ‘Lonesome Dreams’ was kind of this series of old adventure tales. It's sort of a collection of pulp fiction and we wanted the videos to kind of reflect that and have that same feel and style,” Schneider said in an interview.

In 2015, the band released their sophomore studio album entitled “Strange Trails.” It debuted at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 and its lead single “The Night We Met” was RIAA-certified gold on June 26, 2017 (it was certified platinum earlier this year).
