Grammy Best New Artists 2: Lumineers

GRAMMY FEVER, BEST NEW ARTISTS EDITION (PART TWO): Here are the answers to our quiz about Dulatone's The Lumineers, who are up for a Best New Artist Grammy and also got a nod in the Best Americana Album category.

  1. New Jersey, then New York, then Colorado.
  2. Wesley Schultz (vocals, guitar), Jeremiah Fraites (drums, mandolin, backing vocals), Neyla Pekarek (cello, mandolin, piano, backing vocals).
  3. "Ho Hey" is a customary greeting in Democratic Republic of Congo. As far as we know.
  4. The band found Pekarek by placing a "cellist wanted" ad on Craigslist.
  5. Their new single, "Stubborn Love," is #1 at Triple A and will be Top 10 at PoMo next week.
  6. The band members all dressed as Richard Palmese for Halloween. Which was awkward.
