Houndmouth are a band from New Albany, Indiana consisting of Matt Myers (guitar, vocals), Katie Toupin (keyboard, vocals), Zak Appleby (bass, vocals), and Shane Cody (drums, vocals).
Houndmouth became a band in the summer of 2011. After playing locally in Louisville and Indiana, they performed at the SXSW music festival in March 2012 to promote their homemade self-titled EP. Geoff Travis, the head of Rough Trade was in the audience and offered a contract shortly after. In 2012, the band was named "Band Of The Week" by The Guardian.
In 2013 Houndmouth 's album, “From the Hills Below the City”, was released by Rough Trade. This led to US television performances on Letterman, Conan, World Cafe, as well as several major music festivals (ACL, Americana Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Newport Folk Festival).
SPIN and Esquire.com named Houndmouth a "must-see" band at Lollapalooza, and Garden & Gun said, "You'd be hard pressed to find a more effortless, well-crafted mix of roots and rock this year than the debut album from this Louisville quartet."
The band's second LP, “Little Neon Limelight”, was released on March 17, 2015 and launched the band to the next level with solid hit’s like “Sedona” and “Darling”. Be sure to catch them on tour after picking up their music at most online stores.
