A Thousand Horses
A Thousand Horses hails from Nashville, Tennessee and have been playing together under various line-ups since 2003. Despite their age, these young rockers, thanks to the strong major label debut, are in a frontline when it comes to new, exciting southern rock bands.
Front man Michael Hobby and lead guitarist Bill Satcher met in local music store back in their hometown of Newberry, South Carolina in 2003 and soon added Bill’s cousin, Graham DeLoach to the bass. In a acoustic showcase that the boys gave in a hotel room it only took one song to convince the Interscope AR that they had something special in their hands. A bit later Zach Brown was added to the guitar and Shane Lenzen to the drums and A Thousand Horses was officially born.
August 17, 2010 saw the release of A Thousand Horses debut, self-titled EP on DGC/Interscope Records. Recorded in live settings and using vintage gear during six day period Silver Lake, CA with producer Dave Cobb at his home-built 1974 studios. First single out of the five track EP, self-titled “A Thousand Horses” also features Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson.
A Thousand Horses just wrapped up the Simple Man Cruise with Lynyrd Skynyrd in January 2011 and are fresh off a tour in support of their self-titled debut EP with label-mates The Pretty Reckless. This nationwide tour took them to every major city from LA to Dallas to New York and A Thousand Horses will continue to support their new release with busy touring schedule through rest of the year.
The band has already written tons of new material, so keep your ears and eyes open for their full length album which is guaranteed to contain some tasty Southern-rock infused treats.
