Brooklyn trio The Lone Bellow are poised for a potentially big 2013.
The country-soul three-part harmonies and back-porch rhythms on their self-titled debut should satisfy recent cravings for authentic American music.
But what really makes the band unique is the journal-like lyrics and redemptive story of lead singer Zach Williams, whose wife was nearly paralyzed in a horse-riding accident. His words illuminate fractures in a loving marriage during a trying time of physical healing and make the music so bravely personal.
