Originally hailing from a small Wisconsin town made world famous by a pair of overalls (Oshkosh, B'Gosh), the now Milwaukee-based folk band have cultivated a sensibility beyond their years due in part to the powerful literary force that is frontwoman and songwriter, Sarah Vos.

Raised on Bible Hymns by her preacher father, Vos' backstory sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Dead Horses have crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by modern Americana as it is by traditional roots music.

Known for high energy performances, as well as intimate listening room experiences, Dead Horses tour tirelessly with heavy pickers and players in tow–always striving to expand and diversify their live show. From ballrooms to festivals Dead Horses have performed with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, and Elephant Revival, as well as on mainstages at Bristol Rhythm and Roots, WinterWonderGrass, Americana Music Festival, and Red Ants Pants.

At one such fateful festival, Dead Horses piqued the interest of Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) who later invited the band to his studio to record their latest album, Cartoon Moon. Featuring mandolin, organ, banjo, harmonium, and Coomer on drums, Cartoon Moon is a masterful achievement from a band that has come into its own.
