"Baffling” is the word Jeremiah Fraites uses to describe The Lumineers’ positive reception on their 12-city European tour that ended last month. That humility is a common trait among Fraites and bandmates Wesley Schultz and Neyla Pekarek, despite having just received two Grammy nominations (Best New Artist and Best Americana Album) for their eponymous debut studio LP.
The Denver-based folk-rock group is on the first leg of a winter tour, opening for the Dave Matthews Band in four cities, and slated to perform on the first "Saturday Night Live" episode of the new year (Jan. 13, 2013).
But The Lumineers’ apparent overnight success was actually a long road with quite a few speed bumps. While touring in 2010, their van was broken into and all of their instruments were stolen just before a show. Undeterred, The Lumineers finished their tour; they borrowed instruments and recalled having to deal with “creeps who had cellos” in every city. »
