The Lone Bellow's Zach Williams talks 'Brooklyn country,' music's Americana revival and more

Roots-rocking Brooklyn trio The Lone Bellow — one of the hottest, most acclaimed young acts in the new "natural" movement — will brings its reinforced Americana to the Funshine Music Festival at the Florida State Fairgrounds this weekend (they play on Sunday).

Singer-songwriter Zach Williams, guitarist Brian Elmquist and vocalist and mandolin player Kanene Pipkin have been compared favorably to Mumford & Sons, the Civil Wars and the Lumineers.

"I'm thrilled to be part of this music community where bands are responding to the actual listeners, what they want to hear," Williams said in a recent phone interview.
