Horse Thief

“Our music is about more than just the songs we play”, says frontman Cameron Neal, “It’s about losing yourself in the sound and creating an experience that sticks with you long after the show is over,”

With Cameron on vocals and guitar, Alberto Roubert on drums, Cody Fowler on bass, Zach Zeller on keys, and Alex Coleman on guitar, an experience is what you get when seeing Horse Thief live. Some songs on the EP, such as “I Am The Bear,” hint at influences like The Smiths, while others like the Oklahoma anthem, “Warrior,” draw upon the band’s raw, epic psyche-rock tones.

Originally hailing from Denton, Texas, the band decided to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) which is how they came to share the same management team as label-mates The Flaming Lips. Before the start of school the band took a trip to Creede, Colorado to write new material before starting their new lives in Oklahoma. They discovered the name Horse Thief while looking at a map of local hiking trails and realized the name chimed with the freewheeling feelings their music conveys.

“Grow Deep, Grow Wild” will be released 1st April on Bella Union records.
