"Where might country, soul, and popular song intersect? Follow The Bellfuries, as they thrill capacity crowds in the US, UK, Australia, and all over Europe (performing in 14 countries in June 2013 alone).
The band was formed in 1998 by Joey Simeone (lead vocalist/songwriter) and Josh Williams (upright bass), in Austin, Texas. Although ATX has long been a stronghold for roots music, the band had clearly broken the “rockabilly” mold on arrival. With an original songbook distilling Hank Williams heartbreak and Beatles melody, driven home by Joey’s virtuosic singing and stripped-down instrumental backing,The Bellfuries quickly developed a strong local following."
