Folk Alley Sessions: Dead Horses

If you had to choose just one word to describe the duo Dead Horses, it might well be “personal”; nothing is off-limits when it comes to what inspires their sound and, maybe even more importantly, the stories they tell in their music. Based in Milwaukee, WI, the duo, Sarah Vos and Daniel Wolff, first started making music together in 2010; they cut their musical teeth playing at every opportunity that presented itself: farmers’ markets, the sides of busy roads, bars – so many bars – and any other place that would have them. And through it all, they remain dedicated to what Sarah describes as “the most worthy of pursuits for musicians” – songwriting.

From breakups to childhood memories, romantic entanglements and friends in trouble, Dead Horses tackle anything and everything that comes their way. Recently, they let us in to see how they think about music and musicianship and shared a song inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost from their 2018 release, My Mother the Moon, as well as a couple of new songs from 2019 during an exclusive in-studio session recorded at Beehive Productions Studios in Saranac Lake, NY.
