However I do love the kind of music I imagine these swine to be into.
It is rootsy and folksy and usually involves some sort of statement about the simple life and easy women with golden hearts.
I think we were really overwhelmed by the whole thing. It’s a lot of work, it’s a lot of time away from home—we spent almost 300 days on the road last year.
And if we had won—I think the pace that we’re going is already breakneck speed, and a Grammy would’ve just increased all of that. I think that’s the biggest challenge of it, learning to live this lifestyle.
I wouldn’t even recommend the steps I took to any young girl looking to start playing music.

Were you disappointed when you didn’t win the two Grammys you were nominated for? Even just attending the Grammys themselves, we were a little bit out of our element.I fell in love [with the cello] as soon as I started playing it. Did finding one another on Craigslist feel like fate? I was right out of college, and I was kind of perusing Craigslist for anything that could hold me over until I found a full-time teaching job, and I saw an ad for the Lumineers.What ended up happening was not what I expected, that’s for sure!On Thursday, Jeremiah Fraites posted a picture of his keyboard on the folk rock band's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.Taped to the keyboard is a photograph of The Record political columnist Herb Jackson. 18, 2013 file photo, from left, Wesley Schutlz, Neyla Pekarek and Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers pose at the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York.
