A Thousand Horses
Nashville based band A Thousand Horses is a blues and booze infused cocktail of southern rock and country. With lyrics that pay homage to the traditional values of the fly over states, they blend a blue collar mentality with modern southern rock. They are comprised of front man Michael Hobby, Graham Deloach on bass, Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitars and Jonathan Carman on drums.
A Thousand Horses released their debut self-titled EP in 2010 with the stand out tracks "Travelin' Man" and "Suicide Eyes". The latter of which was featured in the 2011 remake of the 80's classic "Footloose". The year 2012 brought the Landslide EP, which built upon the solid foundation of their unobtrusive, classic sound. With tracks ranging from the effortlessly laid back to the loud and infectious, this release showcased the band's creative diversity. The EP features the Southern rock anthem "Tennessee Whiskey", where the band encapsulates the traditional windows–down summer vibrato that makes any beer run or porch hang happen. They have since shared the stage with artists such as Kip Moore, Blackberry Smoke, and Darius Rucker as well as taking part in the last two Simple Man Cruises hosted by Sixthman and Lynyrd Skynyrd. They are to be listened to loud and preferably with a drink in hand. A Thousand Horses celebrate the revival of roots rock with their own country flavor.
One can make musical comparisons, but a live show is where you hear and feel the harmonious energy that the only the chemistry of steady drums, electric guitars and earnest, distinct vocals can produce. Whether they're singing about getting "Trailer Trashed" or reveling in the freedom of losing yourself in "Heaven Is Close", A Thousand Horses is a band that knows how to excite a crowd with their high energy hybrid of rock and country. There are no gimmicks or pretensions here, just four guys whose affinity for music and a rough and tumble crowd make for Country 'N' Roll done right.
