Who are they?
“Dead Horses isn’t a band in the conventional sense. Rather, it’s an intimate, folk-inspired conversation between two close friends. At its core, the participants are guitarist/singer Sarah Vos and bassist Daniel Wolff. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based pair’s musicality, emotionality, and ambitions have sent them on a winding journey in music.
“There is a lot vulnerability in what we do,” Dan acknowledges. “We share in this very personal expression, and we have a common bond in our personal goals.” Sarah adds: “We are both running towards this dream of doing what we love-recording music and touring-even when the outcomes are uncertain.”
Dead Horses weave together a patchwork of classic and contemporary influences that span trad roots, indie-folk, and other experimental musical idioms. In its artistic continuum, DeadHorses has explored freeform musicality and thoroughly composed approaches. Thematically, the songs are personal, revelatory, and relatable, brimming with imaginative phrases, poetry, vulnerability, and a feeling of redemption.
The union of Sarah’s emotive songwriting with Dan’s intrepid bass playing transcends the singer-songwriter-with-backup-musicians paradigm. Dan’s adventurous musicality equally shines alongside Sarah’s songwriting sensibility. To date, Dead Horses has released three albums—two which have been produced by Ken Coomer of Uncle Tupelo/Wilco—an Audiotree Live Session, three singles, and a two-song EP.”
We hope you’ll join in hearing great music and supporting JONAH’s work financially.
