Bella McKendree / Bio

"The reason you should listen, is her voice. Controlled but soulful, clear but timbrally modulated, with a burnished, beautiful tone across her whole range, this is a voice worth seeking out. Acoustic folk song and Americana, of a relatively conventional kind, but performed to perfection." Live Unsigned

In between performing and writing, Bella has been working with producer Martin Wright (Ronnie Wood, Reef, Days of Worth) for the last year on material for her future debut release. They have recorded five songs from her repertoire as a taster for what will appear in the future. "This is me and my piano, nothing more. People can listen as if they are sat beside me.”

From April to May Bella is touring in and around London. Her debut tour date is a charity event raising funds to build a music centre in Zambia. Bella will be playing at well-renowned venues such as The Bedford, The Troubadour and 12 Bar Club. On April 26th Jar Music Live presents her debut Plugged In Industry Showcase, In Association with JMG, BG Studios & RCA at the 02 Academy 2 Islington. Tickets are available on all major online ticket retailers.

As a child Bella was surrounded by gospel music and in her teens began classically singing. Jeff Buckley has greatly influenced her singing style which is particularly noticeable in ‘Precious’ and ‘Love Her’. Other artists she admires are Tori Amos and Ray LaMontagne.
