The Lone Bellow
Tickets go on sale to Music Hall Members Tuesday, June 8 (anyone can become a member) and to the public this Thursday, June 10, at 10 AM.
The Lone Bellow is touring in support of their latest, highly anticipated new album, Half Moon Light. This album is an artistic triumph worked toward for years, earned not by individual posturing, but by collective determination and natural growth. With earthy three-part harmonies and songwriting as provocative as it is honest, the trio made up of Brian, lead vocalist Zach Williams, and multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin creates sparks that make a stranger’s life matter or bring our sense of childlike wonder roaring back. On Half Moon Light, The Lone Bellow mix light and dark to muster a complex ode to memory, a call for hope, and an exercise in empathy. Anchored in the acoustic storytelling that first so endeared the band to fans and critics, Half Moon Light also takes more chances, experimenting with textures and instrumental fillips to create a full-bodied music experience. The result is The Lone Bellow’s most sophisticated work to date.
“I want it to bring comfort,” The Lone Bellow guitarist Brian Elmquist says, reflecting on the album. “But it’s not all hard conversations. There’s a lot of light and some dancing that needs to happen.”
This roots-rock band wants their music to offers a salve and a shelter to the listener. “In my own perfect little world, I would be able to put the music out and not talk about it––just, Here. Bye. See you next time,” says lead vocalist Zach Williams. “I do hope someone will find this music in a peaceful moment when they can turn it on and get lost in the story and the sound.”
