There are relatively simple circumstances surrounding the origins and subsequent journey of Ben Schneider, the frontman/spark plug of atmospheric Americana outfit Lord Huron. Schneider, a native of Okemos, Mich., spent childhood summers on Lake Huron’s beaches, and those evocative reveries eventually seeped into his musical consciousness as he explored that side of his creative identity after college at the University of Michigan, knocking around France, New York City and Los Angeles.
