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. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning album, My Mother the Moon, a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.

Described by NPR Music as "evocative, empathetic storytelling," My Mother the Moon earned a spot in No Depression's "Best Roots Music Albums of 2018" list, and Rolling Stone Country declared the Wisconsin-based duo an "Artist You Need to Know."

LA native Mara Connor's new duet with Langhorne Slim "Someone New" premiered on Consequence of Sound, was featured in Rolling Stone's "10 Best Country/Americana Songs to Hear Now" and as KCRW's Song of the Day, and has exceeded 100K streams on Spotify in its first week thanks to Fresh Folk and Pulse of Americana playlist adds.

Her first single "No Fun" was lauded in Rolling Stone (as a "Song You Need to Know" and in their This Week in Music playlist along with Neil Young and St. Vincent) and named Buzzbands' "No. 1 Favorite Song of 2018." Both are off her forthcoming debut album, recorded in Nashville with Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes). She also just made her SXSW debut and was called one of the "12 best up-and-coming artists at SXSW" by Greg Kot at the Chicago Tribune.
