Dead Horses is a young acoustic band with a cultivated folk sensibility well beyond their years. Hailing from a small Wisconsin town made world famous by a pair of overalls, the Oshkosh, WI based troupe craft powerful coming of age narratives sung by the alluring golden-haired songstress Sarah Vos.


"Dead Horses' sound is equally beautiful and effortless."
-"Simply Folk" on Wisconsin Public Radio


Following the release of their second album 'Space and Time' in 2014, Dead Horses have been touring tirelessly across the Midwest to glowing review, including shows with Brooklyn folksters Swear & Shake, Wisconsin troubadour Cory Chisel and Minneapolis newgrassers Pert Near Sandstone.


"Throughout, 'Space and Time' showcases instrumental virtuosity, masterful songwriting, and heartfelt soul--an overwhelmingly impressive album."
-Those Who Dig


Vos (whose musical influence reads like most early-American folk musicians) was raised by a preacher father and spent a good part of her childhood singing bible hymns. Her gospel, living free and unapologetically, is supported with conviction by Peter Raboin on acoustic guitar and Daniel Wolff on double bass.
