Ollabelle

Named after Appalachian folksinger Ola Belle Reed, Ollabelle are a Manhattan-based band whose music puts an urban spin on Southern genres like bluegrass, gospel, and country. Despite their rootsy influences, the five bandmates first got together in the decidedly non-rootsy East Village, where a local bar called 9C began holding weekly gospel music sessions during the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. What began as a side project for six of the bar's patrons -- singer Amy Helm (the daughter of legendary Americana musician Levon Helm), guitarist Fiona McBain, bassist Byron Isaacs, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Glenn Patscha, and multi-instrumentalist Jimi Zhivago -- quickly turned into a full-fledged group, with label interest from Sony Music and support from fellow roots revivalist T-Bone Burnett, who produced the band's 2004 debut. Performances at the 2004 Newport Folk Festival and Alison Krauss' Great High Mountain Tour helped drum up support for Ollabelle's self-titled album, as did the resurgence of old-timey Americana music.

For their second album, 2006's Riverside Battle Songs, the band enlisted the help of former Bob Dylan sideman Larry Campbell, who agreed to co-produce the record. Riverside Battle Songs, like the album before it, featured the band's unique spin on traditional songs, but it also showcased more of their original compositions, which were molded in the style of their influences and recorded without guitarist Jimi Zhivago (who'd left the lineup, thus slimming Ollabelle down to a quintet). The group continued to tour, recording its performances all the while and releasing a strong live album, Before This Time, before heading back into the recording studio for 2011's Neon Blue Bird. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Jeepers! I can't believe it took me so long to find this amazing sound. Thank you for you heart-felt music. What a gift! ~ Hilda ....a new fan
Nice. (Track: I Don't Want to be That Man)
i was watching Talk Stoop and they only played a little bit of a song and they sounded really cool so i looked them up on pandora. i'm really digging this station. I'm a big fan O Brother Where Art Thou and a lot of the music played on this station reminds me of the music they played in the movie.
I just saw them about two weeks ago. A terrific show. Very talented group that deserves to be better known.
This band defines the genre known as Americana,dr a w i n g on many of the roots of our culture.
Wow, had to stop working and look this artist up. Thought it might be Sade. Of course reading how and why they formed I was equally impressed.

Are they still recording and touring now? I can't find either. Do you have that information. I saw them ant the Birchmere long ago and have one CD, but would like to hear more. Dennis
