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 self-proclaimed folkgrass musicians feature narrative driven songs embellished with skilled picking and fiddling on their second album, Space and Time, set to release October 14, 2014.


     The immediate appeal of Space and Time is Sarah Vos, the golden-haired songstress who sings Dead Horses’ tuneful melodies with ease and sincerity. 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 Tim McIlree on fiddle and mandolin, Peter Raboin on acoustic guitar and Daniel Wolff on double bass.


     Since forming in 2010, Dead Horses have performed more than 400 shows across the Midwest and have re-emerged, focused and determined, as a quartet since releasing their debut album, Back to Life, in 2012.
