Saturday, Apr. 29, 2017, 6:45pm – Will Rogers Stage
Indie Rock, Alt-Country, Americana

Ardent Americana and roots-rock with a distinctive country soul make up the hearty sonic palette of Houndmouth. All four members of this Indiana band contribute to the songwriting and singing, coming together with exuberance in almost every chorus. Shaggy around the edges and effortlessly rustic, Houndmouth is known for outstanding craftsmanship, character-driven lyrics, and euphoric live performances.

Why the Music Matters: Fort Worth will like the feel-good music from this band, a bonafide festival darling. Houndmouth arrived into the national music consciousness after a standout show at SXSW in 2012, where they were signed after a single gig. From rambunctious rock to bruised-soul ballads, Houndmouth’s free-rolling music has secured the band’s place in the long tradition of folk storytelling in America.

Sounds a Little Like: The Lumineers, Alabama Shakes, Mumford & Sons
