The Lone Bellow
Monday, April 16, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, welcomes Americana trio The Lone Bellow live in concert on Monday, April 16, 2018, at 8:00 p.m.
The band was first brought together in 2010 with lead singer Zach Williams, guitarist Brian Elmquist, and multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin. The group now includes Jason Pipkin on keys/bass.
The trio’s self-titled debut album The Lone Bellow is exuberant in its playing and welcoming in its attitude. Though the lyrics have a melancholic undercurrent, the tracks are more often rave-ups than ruminations, with swelling three-part harmonies and rousing group-sung choruses, especially on the electric guitar-driven “The One You Should’ve Let Go” and “Green Eyes and A Heart of Gold.”
Williams, a native Georgian, first came to songwriting via near tragedy. While still living down south, Williams’ young wife was catastrophically injured in a horseback riding accident. Physicians told Williams that, at best, his wife would leave the hospital a paraplegic. But after months of rehab, his wife ultimately regained the ability to walk. Throughout the ordeal, Williams scribbled his thoughts into a journal and his good friend Caleb Clardy suggested he turn his writing into songs. A revitalized Williams and his wife headed to New York City to pursue their creative paths in earnest. Williams wrote deeply personal songs—tender but frank tales of romantic rupture and hard-fought redemption—rooted in the country, folk and gospel of his Southern youth.
