Biography


The Lumineers were formed by Wesley Schultz. Growing up in the New York City suburb of Ramsey, New Jersey, Wesley spent his days drawing with his childhood best friend, Josh Fraites. As entering his teen years, he then traded his pencil with a guitar, his drawings with songs, and played side by side with Josh's younger brother Jeremiah, who's a drummer.

It's never an easy road to get to where they are now. In 2002, the two were grieving the loss of Josh who died from a drug overdose at 19. They found solace in music, writing songs and playing at gigs around New York. After battling the city's cutthroat music scene and impossibly high cost of living, they packed their bags and a trailer full of musical instruments to move to Denver, Colorado.
