THE LONE BELLOW, a rustic Brooklyn trio with bluesy gospel influences, discover the age-old wisdom behind “nice guys finish last” in their video for “You Never Need Nobody.” Soulful vocalist Zach Williams can’t catch his girl’s attention, probably because she’s never known what it’s like to be lonely. Along with Kanene Pipkin (mandolin, vocals) and Brian Elmquist (guitar, vocals), the band cozies up to an open fire to wring every last drop of heartache out of the lyrics. If their weathered brand of Americana warms your hearth, look for their self-titled album early next year. – CMT.com They joined us before their show tonight.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
Clay walker and Jo Dee Messina.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
March 2012 Rockwood music hall. A week before the show a dear friend of ours was in a motorcycle accident and suffered a coma that he wasn’t expected to wake up from. We had planned a really somber set to allow our community some room to reflect and grieve. He woke up an hour before the show, and the set became a completely raucous celebration.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
Monsters of Folk at the Victoria Theatre in Harlem.
Gig you would most like to play?
We would love to play at Red Rocks some day.
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
Kris Kristofferson, Andre 3000 and The ghost of Townes Van Zandt.
