“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.” The Dead Horses’ new album titled “My Mother the Moon” is one that is “full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience. Blending elements of traditional roots with modern indie folk, the songs are both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in their portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in their unshakable faith in brighter days to come.” Vos really puts all her heart and soul into the creation of these songs and their larger works after being through such hardship in her past.
My Mother the Moon is the third album from Dead Horses. It follows their acclaimed 2016 release, Cartoon Moon. That record prompted the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to declare Dead Horses a “band to watch” and earned them honors for best album, best Americana/bluegrass artist, and best female vocalist at the 2017 Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards. With a fleshed-out touring lineup, the group has logged countless miles, sharing bills with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, and Elephant Revival, in addition to making appearances at festivals such as Bristol Rhythm and Roots and WinterWonderGrass.
