HORSE THIEF PLAYS ARTS COUNCIL'S LAST OF SUMMER'S TWILIGHT CONCERTS
From staff sources
Join us for the summer's last Sunday Twilight Concert, presented by Devon Energy, featuring Horse Thief!
This youthful band is a purveyor of a panoramic yet nuanced sound,
flowing from intimate to anthemic, the mood from vibrant to
contemplative, with frontman Cameron Neal's lyrics ranging from
confessional to metaphorical. The result evokes the wide-open spaces of
America's Midwest but infuses the sense of grit and wonderment with
Horse Thief originally founded in Denton, TX, moved to Oklahoma
City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of
Central Oklahoma, from which they recently graduated. The band
subsequently signed with the Flaming Lips' management and soon came to
the attention of Bella Union. Though Fear In Bliss was conceived at
Horse Thief's Oklahoma headquarters, the band decided to record the
album in LA, "to leave our comfort zone of Oklahoma", and producer Thom
Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) has helped the band fuse their
renowned stage performance with studio quality.
