Country and Western has always been one of Belle Cannon's favourite genres of music.
She grew up in a very musical Irish American family so Country Music was always being played.
She grew up listening to the likes of Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson and Hank Williams so it’s just been a part of the fabric of her life.
It’s probably not very trendy growing up in London and listening to Country Music but it’s in Belle's blood, so what can she do?
Belle is influenced by many artists and many different genres of music but when it comes to Country Music artists such as Emmy Lou Harris, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, Guy Clark – amazing singer / songwriters – artists that produce music that speaks to you. That’s always been very meaningful to Belle.
In the realms of more traditional Country then of course the likes of Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams – all that good stuff! It’s all played a part of shaping Belle's appreciation of Country Music.
Belle's debut album, Rewind, was recorded in Nashville in August 2010 for BelleJar Records. It’s Country Pop generally with elements of Bluegrass in there as well.
