Dead Horses
Dead Horses
At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, ‘My Mother the Moon,’ a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos’ songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she’s endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery.

‘My Mother the Moon’ is Dead Horses’ third album, which NPR Music has described as “evocative, empathetic storytelling" and Rolling Stone has called "a beautifully uncluttered collection of songs,” earning Dead Horses a spot in the latter’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know in 2018” list. No Depression relates Vos’ “aching, haunting vocals and tales of working-class men and women” to “lullabies sung to the lonely and lost”, and has already cited the album as one of the “Best Roots Albums of 2018 (So Far)”.

Hailing from Virginia and growing up near Washington, D.C., Matt Rouch has now landed in Denver, CO and is diligently working his way into the music scene. A long-time member of several bands on the east coast, Matt is taking on a new challenge - performing solo as a folk and country singer,

"I think entertaining and captivating an entire room solo is one of the most difficult things to do in music."

Matt's style is a blend of new and old, listing contemporary acts such as The Decemberists, The Tallest Man on Earth, Iron and Wine, and The Milk Carton Kids as major influences, he still draws upon well of the golden age of country for inspiration from artists like Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, and Conway Twitty. Matt's music is dynamic, he can enthrall a crowd with passionate soaring vocals with a loud twangy country number, then mellow things out with a quiet intimate folk song. Storytelling has always been a passion of Matt's and it has permeated through his music, songs of lost loves and new loves are as old as time, however the honesty and intimacy with which Matt approaches his songwriting is what gives his music its charm,

"I guess my favorite quote about writing goes something along the lines of 'great writing isn't better than average writing, it's just more honest' and I try to always remember that when I sit down to write a song."
