Bella McKendree is a songstress carved out of woodland wanderings, a big family and a passionate interest in humanity. Here’s an artist that knows how to take you on a journey right to the core of your heart. With a vocal to pierce through even the thickest of skins (see her live), she is refreshingly herself, with a voice that commands to be heard.
At age 10, she began writing songs acapella, soon adding the piano. Bella felt empowered by the desire to shed light on the truth from matters of the heart to humanity. A shy child, she was surprised to find within herself a fearlessness to be transparent. During this time, Bella was inspired by the blues and gospel music while starting to record in her dad’s garage-turned- studio. At 14 Bella began classical singing and later on her sister introduced her to the music of Jeff Buckley.
