Belinda Blair is a singer/songwriter, performer, bandleader and recording artist born in Baltimore, Md. where she studied music and theatre at Towson State University. She embarked on a grassroots tour of Europe that began on the streets of Paris and performed with Charlie Hunter, Calder Spanier and Mark Bouchard among others. Falling under the influence of this international jazz scene, she stayed in Europe for 8 years, living and performing in Paris, London and Zurich. Belinda toured throughout Europe as lead singer in several bands but namely an original indie rock band that expanded her musical talents beyond the jazz genre. Returning to the states to settle in San Francisco, she studied music, theatre and performance art at SF State, earning an MA in Dramatic Arts. She formed swing band, Jellyroll, with drummer Steve Dekrone and recorded 2 CD's, receiving a CA Music Award for Outstanding Lounge/Swing Act and 5 of their songs are featured in the movie, Swing, starring Jacquiline Bisset. Belinda formed indie rock band, The Earthlings, with Russian guitarist Konstantine Baranov and bassist Edo Castro and recorded 2 CD's. They took their hypnotic style of layering effects, guitar and vocals further by recording an album, Life Copies Movies, with Constantin Gavrilov, whose drum and keyboard loops rooted their music in alternative electronica. Belinda has since landed a publishing deal for her own songs with Rescue Records which licenses her tracks for tv and film. She currently writes and records in her home/studio/cottage perched on the Bay and performs regularly with her bands. She is often featured within the Burning Man community singing and playing ukulele in her bawdy, tongue-in-cheek solo act, Belinda on Uke.
