It’s been six years since Zach Williams first formed The Lone Bellow with multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin and guitarist Brian Elmquist. But one only needs to get the lead singer and guitarist speaking to the indie-folk trio’s songwriting process to witness firsthand just how passionate he remains about its teeming creativity. “It’s a beautiful process,” the effusive singer says of the almost epiphany-like manner in which the Americana Music Award-nominated band typically translates its vivid ideas to melodies and lyrics. “You’re trying to figure out exactly what it is you’re trying to say. And then, ‘Bam! Lightning strikes, everybody’s in the room, and it’s like the heavens open. Suddenly you’re able to write a song.”
The Lone Bellow burst onto the music scene with their self-titled debut in 2013. The Brooklyn-based band quickly became known for their transcendent harmonies, serious musicianship, and raucous live performance — a reputation that earned them their rabid fan base.
It’s been three years since the band’s victorious Then Came The Morning was released and nominated for an Americana Music Award. In the years since the release, the band left their beloved adopted home of Brooklyn and moved to Nashville. Now, The Lone Bellow is back with their third album, Walk Into A Storm, which was produced by legendary music producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, and more) and features their lead single “Time’s Always Leaving.”
You may have seen them on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Show With David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, CBS This Morning, Later…with Jools Holland, or The Late Late Show With James Corden. Now you can see them live on the Buskirk-Chumley Theater stage.
Texas-based singer/songwriter Robert Ellis will open with a short set at 8pm. Ellis’ unique combination of country, jazz, and pop has taken him all over the country, touring with Alabama Shakes, Old Crow Medicine Show, and more. Ellis’ 2011 release Photographs was named one of the top 50 albums of the year by American Songwriter magazine.
Doors will open for this reserved seating show at 7:30pm.
