The Lone Bellow sings with heart of gold
Monday, September 16, 2013
– The Lone Bellow, who will hit the road in October for a leg of its tour, will be working its new single, the crowd pleaser, Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold.
The song is hitting radio airwaves now, and The Lone Bellow has launched an interactive Instagram campaign to coincide with the new single announcement. Fans that utilize the hashtag #Greeneyesandaheartofgold will have their Instagram images featured on The Lone Bellow website.
The Lone Bellow recently partnered with Talenthouse to ask fans to submit designs for the official tour poster around its national headlining tour. After six weeks of submissions and public voting, the results are in. The band chose the winning design and is revealing the artwork of Fabian Gampp as the first place winner. The second place winner was determined by public vote, and the honor goes to the design of Siraj Ul Hassan. Both designers will receive online visibility from The Lone Bellow and the first place winner's design will be printed and used as the official poster of The Lone Bellow forthcoming headlining tour, kicking off Oct. 22 in Atlanta and ending Dec. 11 in Los Angeles.
Opening artists for the fall tours will include: Matthew Perryman Jones, Greg Holden,
Aoife O'Donovan and Ivan & Aloysha.
The Lone Bellow will play a special WFUV-sponsored show at Carnegie Hall on Oct 18.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Making perfect sense of Striking Matches, The Secret Sisters
The pairing of Striking Matches and The Secret Sisters on tour makes perfect sense. Both are duos, although the Matches are male/female and the Secrets truly are sisters (Rogers is the name, not Secret). Both emphasize keen vocal interplay. And perhaps most importantly, they shared a very famous producer, T Bone Burnett.
But when it came to the live... »»»
Concert Review: Whitehorse changes gears
Whitehorse, the Canadian husband-and-wife duo of Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet, has changed gears.
In years past, they were more on the roots side, but you would have scratched your head wondering where that went during their show at what is billed as a folk club.
Only Whitehorse couldn't be accused of being folk oriented either in a tour... »»»

After over 40 years of touring and recording as the founder, lead guitar and front-man for Western Swing music's standard-bearers, Asleep At The Wheel, Ray Benson has a lot of irons in the fire these days. In fact, with his TV show Texas Music Scene a hit throughout the southwestern U.S. and touring in support of AATW's new release, "Still the King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys," he is as busy now as ever.... »»»
In his life and career, Joe Pug has never done anything halfway. So when Pug experienced a crippling lack of creative inspiration after his punishing road schedule to promote 2012's "The Great Despiser," he didn't consider the possibility of taking a short break.

A great deal has transpired in the 10 years between Rhiannon Giddens, Dom Flemons and Justin Robinson connecting at North Carolina's Black Banjo Gathering and the release of Giddens' brilliant debut solo album, "Tomorrow is My Turn." Giddens and Flemons formed the very successful Sankofa Springs. Robinson met and was mentored by black string band legend Joe Thompson, and ultimately, Giddens, Flemons and Robinson formed the bluegrass/folk/blues powerhouse, the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
Sundown Over Ghost Town
It's not an overstatement to say that Eilen Jewell is Johnny Cash reincarnate - at least, that's the sound she puts forth on her seventh album, "Sundown Over Ghost Town." Jewell's melancholy vocals and simplistic instrumentation betray just enough to show each song's depth and autobiographical roots. »»»
The Milk Carton Kids may be one of the most unlikely Americana contenders of the past few years. Relying solely on dual acoustic guitars and close-knit harmonies, they look and sound like an introspective folk duo circa the mid '60s - think Simon and Garfunkel, Peter and Gordon, or Chad and Jeremy »»»
The Malpass Brothers
The North Carolina-based Malpass Brothers' passion for the classic country of past decades is nicely displayed on their latest self-titled release. Christopher and Taylor Malpass are most effective when they tackle brotherly harmonies as with covers of the Wilburn Brothers' "Which One Is To Blame" and the Louvin Brothers' "Satan and the Saint," »»»
It takes a certain raw instinct to make music that's as unhinged and unruly as that purveyed by Banditos. Originally from Alabama and now ensconced in Nashville, this scruffy looking bunch of 20-somethings makes a sound that's wholly raw, raucous and unrefined, a perfect anecdote to the polite, plaintive melodies that defines much of what's typecast as Americana these days. »»»
