Lord Huron: She Lit A Fire
Lord Huron is led by Ben Schenider, the man behind the vision. Having a background in art, Schneider uses his music as another medium to express his creativity; fusing art and music have been at the forefront of who Lord Huron are.
The video for "She Lit A Fire" was released this past week via The New York Times. This stunning piece of work is more of a story rather than a music video, telling the tale through the imagination of George Ranger Johnson as he shares yet another adventurous story with us.
Ben Schneider created the fictitious character, George Ranger Johnson, a Western adventure novelist -- who also acts as one of the main sources of inspiration for the band. Every music video released by Lord Huron is part of a series of adventure [novels by Johnson], whether that be running through the desert plains in "Time To Run" or exploring the unknown territory on a desolate island in "Lonesome Dreams." Each video is beautifully shot; the themes all contain some element of suspense, thrill and of course... romanticism. Think spaghetti western with a modern-day artistic twist.

Lord Huron is currently working on material for their second album. Until we are graced with this, we will just have to live vicariously through their adventures... and catch them on their North American tour.
