St. Cecilia Music Center (SCMC) is proud to present The Lone Bellow in their new North American “Triiio Tour” on November 29, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. The Lone Bellow “Triiio Tour” features the three key members of The Lone Bellow – Zach Williams on guitar and vocals, Brian Elmquist on guitar and Kanene Donehey Pipkin a multi-instrumentalist. For the first time ever, the band is playing in concert as a trio with no back up band – riffing on a wildly popular portion of their previous live shows where the trio would gather for a couple of songs in an intimate acoustic performance.The “Triiio Tour” is a live presentation of their recently released album on October 19th, Restless EP, that features new songs, two covers, and three reworked versions of songs from previous records. The Lone Bellow began as a Brooklyn-based band. They moved to Nashville in 2016 and have become widely known for their transcendent harmonies, serious musicianship and lively performances.
It all started with the idea of the “TRiiio tour” a one mic tour, says Zach Williams. “Since we released our first album in 2013, we’ve been setting a few songs aside every night to sing together around one mic, and those times have become some of our most memorable musical moments of touring together. The response to those acoustic sets have been so powerful, that we decided to put together an entire tour all around that one microphone. In the spirit of…the tour, we were prompted to make a record that would capture that feeling, and to make it ourselves. We had never done that before. We ended up making it in Jason and Kanene’s attic along with all of the natural sounds of that space: floors creaking, birds chirping, babies crying, lawnmowers running. It was a joy to make.” The new album, Restless EP, was produced by Brian Elmquist and Jason Pipkin.
SCMC Executive Director Cathy Holbrook states, “We are very excited to welcome The Lone Bellow on this special acoustic tour. SCMC will be the perfect venue for this great band and their acoustic sound in the amazing Royce Auditorium. This will truly be a memorable evening at St. Cecilia Music Center.”
