Denver, Colorado based The Lumineers celebrated becoming the biggest selling global Americana artist in the UK by dazzling fans and critics alike with two sold out performances in New York City at the legendary venue, Madison Square Garden. Described by Billboard Magazine as, “…equal parts heartfelt and exciting” the two over-capacity, knock-out performances were the culmination of the front half the of band’s first arena tour, The Cleopatra World Tour supporting their critically acclaimed second album Cleopatra. The album, which debuted at No.1 on both the US Billboard 200 and UK album chart when released last year is currently Gold in the United States with no signs of slowing down.

The Americana Music Association is the global organisation supporting artists making roots music in the USA and UK. Upon hearing the news of their album being the biggest global seller in the genre lead singer Wesley Schultz said, “”I feel very grateful that in an age where singles seem to be the focus, lots of people are still out there who still listen to albums, and can’t believe we were the top seller in the US and U.K.”

Renowned for their impressive live shows The Lumineers recently wrapped their second sold-out UK headline tour of the year to huge critical acclaim, with Evening Standard (4*) stating ““The Lumineers roots rock was endlessly entertaining, as each member demonstrated an impressive versatility” and The Times (4*) highlighting the fact “[Lead singer] Schultz shone and his band played out of their skins to keep up his momentum”.

The Cleopatra World Tour will continue in the UK and Europe this summer and includes a very special show in Hyde Park (Sunday, July 9th) with Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers & Stevie Nicks at British Summer Time.

The Lumineers are songwriters Wesley Schultz (vocals, guitar) and Jeremiah Fruits (drums, piano) and cellist and backing vocalist Neyla Pekarek, who became a part of the group in 2010. Writing modern melody and lyric driven songs, drawing from a variety of roots and modern music influences the band have enjoyed huge success, first with their Grammy nominated self titled platinum selling debut with run away hits including ‘Ho Hey” and “Stubborn Love” and recently with their sophomore release, Cleopatra which topped the UK album chart in April. The Lumineers continue to find new fans with their intelligent restrained classic song writing following the mantra that the instrumentation and structure of their recordings, must always serve the song. The partnership of Wes and Jeremiah sees Wes’ classic singer-songwriter approach uniquely complimenting Jeremiah’s ear for restrained arrangement and cinematic inspired soundscapes – the partnership producing once again, a timeless sounding record, that will hold a place in our record collections for many years to come.
