Zach Williams, Kanene Pipkin and Brian Elmquist are The Lone Bellow, a Brooklyn based old school country folk trio. Their self-titled debut album was recorded in three days after a successful Kickstarter campaign had garnered $ 25,000 to cover the costs.
The eleven originals sound like they were penned many moons ago. The subject matter of the album - love lost and other relationship - is timeless. They have found new ways to use the old words, often using three-part harmonies to sing them, with a wide variety of acoustic instruments backing them up, The Lone Bellow go for the grandiose in a subdued manner- a wall of sound disguised as a white garden fence.
The Lone Bellow is released on Descendant Records. Fingers crossed for a vinyl version in a gatefold sleeve. Release date: January 22.Tracks:
