“San Antonio's Lonely Horse is a two-piece tribe comprised of Nick Long and Travis Hild. They make dark folk-rock which crackles with bluesy riffs. Dense and intense, Lonely Horse's songs are emotionally explosive and spiritually charged works of art that will leave your little hairs standing on end and your mind wondering how two dudes can reach such heights of sonic power and immediacy.”
“Lonely Horse (Nick Long in guitar/vocals, Travis Hild on drums) is the type of band you just don’t forget after you see it for the first time. What started as a six-piece in 2009 gradually became what it is now: a two-piece more interested in eclectic songs than just groove alone. They go from fierce soulful/bluesy riffs to mellow artsy folk, and their My Desert Son EP is a teaser of an upcoming full-length. But you only get the full LH experience live, so don’t miss this one. In case that was not enough, the show will also feature the Offbeats (one of the top five local bands on my list), Islands & Tigers, and Dark Planes. Another solid lineup in the “new” venue formerly known as Limelight. $3-$5, 9pm Friday, War Room, 2718 N St Mary’s, (210) 735-7775, warroomsa.com.”
"Spirituality flows in and around these guys. You feel it in their music and see it in their eyes."
"Relocation is again a necessity, however, after November’s “Second Friday” event. Local powerhouse Lonely Horse began strumming the first chords of their set when police shut off power to the building."
“Lonely Horse hit the stage at 9:30 with acoustic opener “The Racist and I,” which happens to be my favorite of their songs. It’s reminiscent of old Marcy Playground (not the singles) with singer Lonely Horse (actual name) mimicking John Wozniak’s breathy croon almost perfectly. According to the band’s Myspace page, Lonely Horse plays “Native American story music” — though you probably wouldn’t have gleaned that based solely on the music were it not for the brief chanting at the end of their second song, “Tall Grass.” They follow that with “Seven Sisters,” which opens up with drummer Justin Garcia playing at an almost Thursday-ish panic, then shifting into more straightforward indie pop. By song’s end, Lonely Horse’s voice sounds so downtrodden you expect to hear his heart breaking over the PA.”
"Congrats to this month's BORDERLINEA featured musician in S.A. Scene Magazine, Lonely Horse. Bam!"
