Back From Broken podcast host Vic Vela interviewed the founding members of the Lumineers, Jonathan Fraites and Wesley Schultz, at Denver’s Clocktower Cabaret on Jan. 14, 2020.

The Lumineers have sold millions of records and played stadiums around the world. Their latest album is about the pain of addiction and what it's like to see a loved one struggle with substance abuse. Before social distancing and restrictions at concert venues, The Lumineers shared the personal stories that inspired their music and played stripped-down versions of some of their songs. They joined "Back from Broken" host Vic Vela at the Clocktower Cabaret in Denver.
