Formed in 2007, The Black Horse Candidate is the culmination of projects whose paths had weaved two years prior. Glen Cupples (guitar,keys, tambourine) and Per (Kris) Ohrstrom (guitar, vocals, harmonica) first performed under the very original band name, "Kris and Glen." Brandon Davidson (drums), formerly of Dots and Boxes, flirted with the idea of taking up the throne to play drums with both "Kris and Glen" and "Next Time Around (NTA)." NTA: Houston-based band which dawned Matt McGahen as bassist. Kris would later join "Next Time Around" and play rhythm guitar and lead/backup vocals until ultimately he and Matt split ways with NTA (whose members went on to start "And the Pursuit. . .") to form The Black Horse Candidate. The Black Horse Candidate (TBHC) played their first show in 2007, and have since continued to play shows taking repeated breaks for the college semesters, however still maintain the drive to play for audiences far and wide.
