Cellist quits The Lumineers

Cellist Neyla Pekarek has quit The Lumineers.
The 32-year-old musician, who has been part of the folk-rock group with founding members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites for eight years, has left to focus on a solo career.
“They say when a snake sheds its skin, it is a sign of rebirth, transformation, and new beginnings,” the Ho Hey hitmaker said in a statement. “Eight years ago, I answered a Craigslist ad to be in a band. In those eight years, we were nominated for two Grammys, we met President Obama, and we saw just about every dark, dingy green room this big, beautiful planet has to offer.
“I am incredibly grateful for these experiences and opportunities, but it is time to shed my skin; it is time for a new adventure.”
Neyla is hoping to release her debut album, Rattlesnake, in 2019.
