The Lone Bellow is an American musical group from Brooklyn.
The Lone Bellow began as a songwriting project for Zach Williams, whose wife had suffered temporary paralysis following a horseback riding accident. During his wife's recovery, Williams coped with the experience by writing in a journal. At the urging of his friends, Williams learned how to play the guitar and turned his journal entries into songs. Following his wife's recovery, the couple moved to New York City in order to pursue their creative endeavors.
Previously, Williams had been performing as a solo act around Brooklyn and New York City, occasionally being backed by a hired band.
