New York Americana and Swiss Alps soul: the music of Bellehouse & Indiana Grace.

Music Friday Live! Podcasts

Bellehouse was formed in 2013 and currently is based in Brooklyn, performing as a indie Americana band that is between down-home roots music and intellectual folk-rock. Bellehouse delivers a sound that embraces a variety of genres — from Celtic traditional and folk revival to soul and Motown and a bit of rock. The group includes  Sarah Elizabeth Haines (viola, voice),Jess Taylor Clinton (vocals, guitar, songwriting), Catie Friel (vocals), Nick Lenchner (bass) and Ryan Gross (banjo, vocals),and  Mackenzie  Shivers  (keys, voice).   Yuka Tadano (bass), and Cody Rahn  (percussion) deepen  the band’s sound.  They have just released the first single “Devil’s Sound” from their upcoming album, Capsized.

Indiana Grace grew up with her Swiss father and American mother in the Swiss Alps and began singing and songwriting pop songs with the skills she acquired from piano and classical voice lessons. She earned a place at the prestigious The School for Gifted Children of the Performing Arts in Switzerland, as the first pop singer ever accepted there.  After attending  Zurich University of the Arts, she produced, sang, and composed a CD with Swiss Rapper, C-Beat, that reached Top 10 in the charts in East Switzerland. At the age of 18 she left for the United States and began perfecting her own sound and musical style while studying performance and songwriting at the famed Berklee College of Music.  With a trained operatic voice, her rising choruses, soft vibrato, and soulful sounds are unique in the pop world.  Her soulful singles “Lose Count” & “Avalanche” is a preview of what to expect in her upcoming debut album.
