The Lone Bellow has been one of my favorite new finds in recent times. I’ve featured them on this blog a few times in the last two years. The first time it was after I saw a version of them in 2012 opening up for the Civil Wars. The second time was after they re-branded themselves as The Lone Bellow and released this debut album.
I’ve since seen them live a few more times – and their passion for their catchy folky pop rock music is truly inspiring. Any group of musicians that truly care as much as they do deserve SOME sort of recognition.
Here is that recognition – albeit not very noteworthy. A #25 spot on this countdown is something I hope The Lone Bellow will cherish for years to come – as they climb up the ladder of mainstream music.
My prediction is that with their next release, they hit it big with a really catchy radio pop song and become a group that you ‘ll be able to pin down next to Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers.
