Artist: Dead Horses

Label: Self Released
Release Date: 09/30/2016
Milwaukee’s Dead Horses brings out the best in songwriting and folk music via lead vocalist Sarah Vos. The trio mixes Vos’ lyrics with classic blues and country to create Cartoon Moon and give listeners ten solid tracks of love, loneliness and life.
Vos’ smooth, jazzy voice (example: “Ain’t Got Time”) combine well with fast finger picking and live studio sounding instruments throughout the album, proving that this group has the experience and force to top the charts. This third full-length album from the band is produced by Ken Coomer (Wilco) who helps pull together a smooth, laid back, and cohesive sound. Other beautifully pieced together songs include “Deep Blue Sea,” “In the Morning” and “Long Way Down.”
