Brooklyn-based folk rock band The Lone Bellow exudes energy and soul in every song, in stories of heartache and redemption, while their soaring three-part harmonies make you want to sing along. The trio comprises Zach Williams (guitar), Kanene Pipkin (mandolin & bass) and Brian Elmquist (electric guitar).
Their brand new album, Then Came The Morning, reviewed by Billboard, released a couple of days ago in the USA and releases here in Australia tomorrow. I’m super-excited. The title track has been floating around for a few months now taunting me. In addition to their vocal intensity and raw passion, I like that they work together as a group live as well as they do on their records.
Check out this spectacular live performance on David Letterman:
Lead singer Zach turned to music following his wife Stacy’s horse riding accident, as a way of working through both pain and hope, an amazing story of the power of poetry and music to transform tragedy into beauty. These themes resonated through the catchy melodies, stirring lyrics and explosive climactic moments on The Lone Bellow‘s self titled first album released in 2013. A captivating soulful album that moves your heart with every listen. Looking forward to what’s next.
