We've never encountered voices like these; voices that meld together in sticky unison, that plummet to emotional depths, stir around the soul down there, lifting it anew to the heavens. Powerful voices, belonging to a masterful group of musicians we're excited to be featuring in our latest session. We recently caught up with The Lone Bellow in the hours before hundreds would shuffle into Carnegie Hall to bear witness to their testifying brand of folk rock. On a day that held the last traces of summer in its arms, we met with the amicable band of Brooklynites under the arch in Washington Square Park, negotiating with a few authoritative types to set up a few mics so that the band could busk a quartet of songs from their self-titled, debut album. As the band started moving through "Green Eyes And A Heart Of Gold" and "You Don't Love Me Like You Used To" the crowd in our grassy hideaway started to build, drawn by the luscious voices and uplifting spirit that traces through The Lone Bellow's music. After that, the band decided to take it straight to the people of the park, stripping down to a single mic capture in the middle of the main square, playing "You Never Need Nobody" and "Watch Over Us", encouraging more and more people to gather around. For those who neglected to get tickets to the Carnegie concert later that night, it was an unexpected freebie in a gorgeous setting and we were there to capture all the action.
