The Lone Bellow burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut in 2013. The Nashville-based trio quickly became known for their transcendent harmonies, serious musicianship and raucous live performance -- creating what NPR calls, 'earnest and magnetic folk-pop built to shake the rafters.' In 2015, the band released Then Came The Morning, produced by The National's Aaron Dessner. The album was nominated for an Americana Music Award and took the band to numerous late night shows including Jimmy Kimmel LiveLate Show With David Letterman and Later...with Jools Holland, among others. In 2017, The Lone Bellow returned with Walk Into A Storm, produced by legendary music producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Sturgill Simpson). Most recently, the band returned to the studio with Aaron Dessner for their 2020 release, Half Moon Light, an artistic triumph the band 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.

    The Lone Bellow burst onto the 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. Produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, the album was nominated for an Americana Music Award. The band appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Show With David Letterman," "Conan O'Brien," "CBS This Morning," "Later...with Jools Holland," and "The Late Late Show With James Corden" in support of the album. 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 Walk Into A Storm, which will be released Sept. 15 on Sony Music Masterworks. Walk Into A Storm was produced by legendary music producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, and more) and features their lead single "Time's Always Leaving." The trio, featuring Zach Williams (guitar/vocals), Kanene Donehey Pipkin (multi-instrumentalist), and Brian Elmquist (guitar), recorded this album in only seven days. The group’s first two albums graced the Billboard 200.

    Tall Heights

    Pop

    The third full-length from Tall Heights, Juniors emerged from a period of profound turmoil and revelation for the Massachusetts duo. In the span of five months, Paul Wright and Tim Harrington experienced a convergence of events that included major health and substance-abuse crises among their closest loved ones, saying goodbye to Harrington's grandfather and to a beloved grandfather figure for Wright, and -- in far happier, yet still intense news -- the announcement that each of their wives was expecting. Compounded by a series of shake-ups in their professional life, that upheaval coincided with the start of the pandemic. Rather than succumbing to the tremendous pressure of that point in time, Tall Heights chose to confront the chaos by creating within it. The result: an album that precisely channels the pain, uncertainty, and unbridled joy of its inception.

    As they set to work on Juniors, Harrington and Wright discovered an unexpected outcome of the loss that they'd endured: a shift in mindset that enabled them to embrace a boundless curiosity and exploratory spirit even more powerful than when they first formed Tall Heights (an endeavor that began when Harrington, on guitar, and Wright, on cello, used to busk on the streets of Boston back in the late 2000s). In a nod to the wide-eyed perspective that arose from the album's creation, the duo chose a title evocative of youthful wonder. "After everything we went through, we came to a place of understanding that we have no control, that each new day is an adventure we need to approach with beginner's eyes," says Harrington. Wright adds: "Through all the discomfort, we took it as our mission to stay humble and hungry, to know that everything will change and to be prepared to find something of real value in that -- and to find ourselves in it, too."

    The follow-up to 2018's Pretty Colors For Your ActionsJuniors came to life at "The Tall House" -- the Northeastern Massachusetts home where Wright and Harrington lived together for six years with their wives, pets, and Harrington's firstborn son, eventually moving out in August 2020. In a departure from the elaborate production process that yielded its predecessor, the two musicians wrote and recorded most of Juniors in isolation, holing up on the third floor of the household they liken to a joyfully anarchic artist commune. "It all happened in this tiny, hectic, beautiful space where our wives were also working from home, both pregnant, and there's a dog and a cat that hated each other, and then Tim's toddler who'd just started walking would come barging in and start dancing mid-take, joining in a song with us," Wright recalls. Despite the nonstop disruption, Tall Heights soon found their way to a shapeshifting sound that illuminates their singularity like never before. "Because we were cut loose and isolated within this space and time, we ended up capturing something incredibly and uniquely us in the new sound we created," Harrington points out.

    In putting the finishing touches on Juniors, Tall Heights headed to Omaha and worked with producers Mike Mogis (Paul McCartney, Phoebe Bridgers, Bright Eyes) and Oliver Hill, who helped refine and enrich the backdrop of their emotionally raw songwriting. On the opening track "Keeps Me Light," the band muses on the ineffable comfort and safety of true connection, intensifying the track's radiant mood with the luminous vocals of a Berklee College of Music a cappella group called Upper Structure. Revealing the complexity of Juniors, Tall Heights then drift into the wistful reverie of "Locked Out," a song inspired by Wright's struggle to help his wife through a severe bout of anxiety. "Paul and I each wrote the lyrics to 'Locked Out,' which I think points back to how intertwined our lives have become," says Harrington. "It's so unlikely that I could have felt his pain as hard as I did -- but because I was living it too in that house, what's fiercely personal to Paul became fiercely personal to me."

    The most commanding track on Juniors, "Hear It Again" took shape as Tall Heights messed around with an assortment of synthesizers they'd borrowed from their friend and tourmate Ben Folds, arriving at a tender rumination on home and belonging. "We've spent so much of our time living on the road, and that song is our way of asking, 'What if that's the place where we feel the most safety and consistency and stability?'" says Harrington. In a particularly poignant turn, "The Mountain" reflects on the losses that Harrington and Wright recently suffered, transforming that heartache into a moment of healing. "A friend had texted us a photo of his grandfather on the day before he died: he was sitting in a hospital bed looking out the window at the mountains, and the sun was shining on his face," says Wright. "That song came from thinking about our friend's grandmother saying goodbye to his grandfather and sending him off on his journey, but in a way it also speaks to how there's been so much collective loss over the past year." Meanwhile, on "Raindrop," Tall Heights offer up a meditation on emotional responsibility. "Sometimes a relationship can get intense in the wrong place and time," says Harrington. "So, in the end, it's a song about choosing which relationships deserve your all, and when to let things go and move on with your life."

    Looking back on the tumultuous year that gave rise to their latest album, Harrington and Wright note that they've adopted the Juniors outlook as something of a spiritual ethos: a realization that every new endeavor -- no matter how familiar -- will undoubtedly present new challenges and extraordinary surprise, ultimately reminding them that they are still but juniors. "I feel ready to view each next chapter of Tall Heights as another round of Juniors," says Harrington. "This experience has emboldened us to create in any situation -- because when life got very intense, we doubled-down on what we care about the most: creating songs together. And it felt fresh and new in that context." And although leaving the Tall House proved nothing short of heartbreaking, the duo have found their devoted bond to be stronger than ever. "This record gave us the chance to really understand what we have in each other as weird partners on the great journey of self-exploration," says Wright. "We know now that the Tall House can be a state of mind, not just a place of refuge. So while chaos continues, we're able to fully see the beauty that can come from it."
