Firehorse @ Rockwood Music Hall + debut album and so they ran faster…


Firehorse is the captivating new project from singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Leah Siegel and recently released the eclectic debut, and so they ran faster… via PledgeMusic Recordings on both vinyl and CD.

Todd Martens of the LA Times commends Firehorse, "Has crafted a nine-track album that shows off her vocal range and drapes it in adventurous orchestral pop arrangements" is his feature on the songstress and she impressed the masses during CMJ 2011 in her home city.

Produced by Geoff Stanfield (Mark Kozelek, Sun Kil Moon, Moby) and with Steve Elliot on guitar, the inimitable Tim Luntzel (Rosanne Cash, Loudon Wainwright III, and more) on bass, and Brian Wolfe (Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Diane Schuur, Joan Jett, and others) on drums, and so they ran faster... explores the sonic possibilities and personal expression of an artist reaching for the next horizon.

"Our Hearts," the lead track from and so they ran faster…, is an ethereal shuffle about experiencing joy after a moment of total surrender. A video directed by Jon Morris of The Windmill Factory is on the way!

NPR's "All Songs Considered" featured the band as a CMJ Discovery
"Firehorse, fabulous fabulous songs and a great singer in Leah Siegel... Think the best of Jeff Buckley" - Bob Boilen, NPR All Songs Considered

PASTE Magazine named them one of "10 Great Bands from CMJ"
"Siegel's powerhouse vocals were the highlight of the set, at times haunting and at other times providing the perfect soundtrack to what quickly evolved into an indie-pop dance party." - Bonnie Stiernberg, PASTE MAGAZINE

The L Magazine & Virgin were also blown away.
"the fusion of funk and pop and grunge, and a trained, confident voice were all the right ingredients, but the songs themselves were some of the best crafted I've heard at this year's CMJ." - Sydney Brownstone, THE L MAGAZINE

Firehorse will be back at Rockwood Music Hall - STAGE 2 on Friday, November 18, 2011 at 9pm for a FREE PERFORMANCE.
