Delivers an easy mix of Americana and roots-pop, as these talented artists explore the contrasts of their collective existence.

The Wonderful Nobodies (Seth Taylor, Lacy Green, and Aaron Williams) are a Nashville-based trio of singers, songwriters, and multi-instrumentalists hailing from the Appalachian region of Virginia and North Carolina. "Hallelujah Anyhow" is the last song from recently released debut album "A|B."

It was a Friday night jam that made a band out of these long-time friends. In an attempt to capture that initial magic, they converted a room in their shared house into a studio. The Wonderful Nobodies delivers an easy mix of Americana and roots-pop, as these talented artists explore the contrasts of their collective existence. They are small town kids in a big city; they are proud, yet humble; scared, but brave at the same time. "Hallelujah Anyhow" features a stunning lead vocal performance from Lacy Green, who adds just a hint of country inflection to an infectious pop melody. With added elements of piano, dobro, and acoustic guitar, The Wonderful Nobodies breathes new life into a classic, Nashville acoustic-pop sound. Their full-length album "A|B" is a worthy candidate for debut roots project of the year.

This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist and episode 2 of The Weekly Catch.
