About Big Thief

Big Thief frontwoman Adrianne Lenker was born on a Christian commune in Indiana, but her family left when she was age four after her parents realized that it was a cult.

∙ Lenker, who didn’t attend high school, spent her teenage years devoted to music and recorded two pop albums.
∙ All members of Big Thief are graduates of the Berklee College of Music.
∙ In 2016, Big Thief kicked off a three-year run of near-constant touring, playing approximately 700 shows around the world.
∙ Released only seven months apart, U.F.O.F. and Two Hands both made the Billboard 200 chart, and U.F.O.F. received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.
∙ “Mary,” from the 2017 album Capacity, landed at No. 44 on Pitchfork’s list of the 200 Best Songs of the 2010s.
