"Then Came the Morning" by The Lone Bellow on iTunes

13 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Fear not; neither the unexpected success of The Lone Bellow's 2013 debut album nor the enlistment of The National's Aaron Dessner as producer for the follow-up has affected the trio's vision. The appropriately titled Then Came the Morning feels like the ultimate morning-after album, with its intimate feel, gospel/soul influences, and redemptive vibe. Earthy vocal harmonies are still front and center, and acoustic axes still dominate, as the band's blend of folk, rock, and pop unfurls. Sure, the big beats of the gritty grinder "Cold As It Is" and the dirty guitars on the crunching, bluesy stomper "Heaven Don't Call Me Home" kick things up a bit, but the soft-pedaled, soulful sound that sets the band apart from the neo-folk pack still reigns.

About The Lone Bellow

The Lone Bellow (lead singer/guitarist Zach Williams, singer/mandolinist/keyboardist Kanene Donehey Pipkin, singer/guitarist Brian Elmquist) are a group of transplanted Southerners based in Brooklyn who deliver a passionate, soulful, acoustic-based brand of Americana. The band started after Williams' wife was involved in a serious accident that left her temporarily paralyzed from the neck down. While hoping and waiting for her recovery (she did recover), Williams began writing a set of haunting songs that dealt with tragedy, hope, and redemption. Following her recovery, the couple moved to Brooklyn.

In 2010, Williams, who had been working as a solo act, began jamming with Elmquist, an old friend, and when Pipkin joined in, the trio knew they had a band. Building on Williams' songs, and working and writing together along with bassist Jason Pipkin and drummer Justin Glasco, they built up an impressive early catalog. A deal with Sony imprint Descendant Records yielded the group's critically acclaimed eponymous debut, which rose to number 64 on the Billboard Top 200 in early in 2013. After a year of hard touring, the band announced they'd be working with fellow Brooklynite Aaron Dessner (the National) on their follow-up album, Then Came the Morning, which arrived in January 2015 and earned them an American Music Award nomination for best group/duo. Following a relocation to Nashville in 2016, the Lone Bellow returned with "Time's Always Leaving," the lead single from their third LP. ~ Steve Leggett
