Hailing from Brooklyn via south of the Mason-Dixon, THE LONE BELLOW has signed to Descendant Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.  Their self-titled album will be released at iTunes and independent retailers on January 15th with a wide release on January 22nd. Additionally, “Bleeding Out” will be iTunes “Single of the Week” this week.  The Lone Bellow has received some impressive early attention – most notably a January 22nd appearance on Conan, NPR‘s “First Listen;” and heavy rotation on  renowned taste-maker station WFUVBillboard calls the band “one of The Next Big Things for 2013,” with NPR’s Bob Boilen saying, “The
world of acoustic music is about to get a new household name. The music
of The Lone Bellow is born from tragedy and told with heart and
simplicity.”
Featuring lead singer and principal songwriter Zach Williams; singer and mandolin player Kanene Pipkin, and guitarist Brian Elmquist,
The Lone Bellow have made a name for themselves with their acclaimed
live shows in New York and across the country during their stint opening
for The Civil Wars.  At the heartof it, Zach Williams
is an intentional songwriter focused on growing a community, rather than
merely finding a following.  The Lone Bellow isn’t just a group of
musicians; they are an “urban tribe,” a family away from family.
Georgia-born
Williams began songwriting in 2005, during a prolonged stay at
Atlanta’s Shepherd Center after his wife was thrown from a horse and
paralyzed from the neck down. With a dire diagnosis of quadriplegia,
there was nothing to do but sit vigil with his group of friends – also
artists.  While they waited for healing, Zach picked up a guitar and
taught himself to play.  His wife eventually recovered (her spinal cord,
initially thought broken, was terribly bruised) and the couple and
their group of friends moved to Brooklyn shortly thereafter.
Williams
and the band’s music evolved to reflect his Southern roots,
incorporating elements of rock, gospel, country and blues that result in
a unique and soul-searing blend of can’t-get-them-out-of-your-head
lyrics that spring from a deep emotional reservoirThe
upcoming record is a complete work, a “collection of stories embodying
tragedy, hope, betrayal and redemption.” The first track “Your Never
Need Nobody” is out now.  Tour dates below with more to be announced
soon:
Jan 21 – Los Angeles, CA at Hotel Café
Jan 24 – Montclair, NJ at Wellmont Theater w/Dwight Yoakam
Jan 25 – Mashantucket, CT at Foxwoods Resort & Casino at MGM Grand w/Dwight Yoakam
Jan 28 – New York, NY in-store performance at Barnes & Noble in Union Square
Feb 5 – New York, NY at Bowery Ballroom (Album Release Show)
“Passionate
and self-assured, this trio’s debut treads a middle ground between
Mumford bombast and neo-folkie navel gazing. They call it ‘Brooklyn
country music,’ a rootsy brew flavored with close harmonies and light on
hipster pretension.” – 
Jerry Shriver, USA Today
“songs of survival and redemption, written out of necessity rather than opportunity.”Stephen Thompson, NPR

“Riding a strong reputation for heartfelt creations and an electric
live show, Brooklyn’s The Lone Bellow is set to make its mark on the
music industry.”
– Paste
“…you
needn’t look further than the country-fried soul of The Lone
Bellow…the Brooklyn-based trio plugs into an old tradition of Folk
Americana, and brings it to life in a way that should help keep you warm
this winter.” – 
Deli Magazine 
“[The
Civil Wars] had some competition in the harmony realm from The Lone
Bellow, a Brooklyn-based trio cut from the same rootsy fabric.” –
Orlando Sentinel
