Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by Ben Schneider. Originally a solo project, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Ben Schneider was born in Michigan and started playing music as a child, on his fatherís acoustic guitar. The senior Schneider wasnít a musician by trade, but he had learned a bit during his downtime on ships in the Navy. SchneiderĎs father would bring the instrument out from time to time most often on summer nights around the campfire up on Lake Huron to strum and hum the songs he knew. After learning the basics, Schneider began his formal training in the school orchestra. He played upright bass and fiddled with many other instruments, both acoustic and electric, and began recording original music on a four-track cassette machine.
The Colorado-based foursome has crisscrossed the country over the past eleven years playing such varied settings as festivals, rock clubs, Red Rocks Amphitheater in the bandís home state, and recently the Democratic National Convention in Denver at Mile High Stadium opening for Barack Obama. Their loyal fanbase has been built from this diverse setting of music venues as fans latched on to their genre-defying original sound.
