Band of Horses is Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey and Bill Reynolds. The band’s latest album, the Grammy-nominated Infinite Arms, was a collaborative effort that showcased the songwriting skills of all five band members and yielded the most focused and dynamic Band of Horses record to date. 2010 saw the band support the album with a world tour that included a run of dates with Pearl Jam, a surprise performance in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, a memorable appearance at Farm Aid alongside Willie Nelson and Neil Young, and triumphant gigs from Australia and Japan to the Arctic Circle in Norway. 2011 looks to be no different, as the band continues to tour and support the Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia release. ASCAP is proud to add the 2011 Vanguard Award to Band of Horses’ growing list of accomplishments.
