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.

Brilliant

SarahAnneElizabeth,

I discovered this band when my boyfriend ran monitors for them when they opened for Dwight Yokum at Foxwood's Resort and Casino in early 2013. Needless to say, we have been captivated by their music ever since and will be seeing them live for the third time at the end of February. The harmonies, the lyricism and the musicianship are incredible but can truly not be appreciated until you're in the same room and can feel their energy from the stage. They pour their heart and soul into every performance. There simply isn't anyone out there like this group right now.

Absolutely stunning.

DraftSharksFab,

Grab this album and catch this incredible band on the rise.

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
