“Bella McKendree is going to make waves in the years to come." EARMILK

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, she is refreshingly herself on stage, with a voice that commands to be heard, accompanied by her deep connection to the piano. Bella’s song-writing burst into life at the age of 10 upon discovering some of the mid-90s singer-songwriters; Jeff Buckley, Tori Amos and Ray LaMontagne.

2017 saw the release of her Debut E.P ‘Waiting’ produced by Grammy Award-Winner Brett Shaw (Ed Sheeran, Foals) Inspired by London Grammar and The XX, the E.P was picked up by BBC Introducing and supported by a six-week European Tour. Described by Clash magazine as a voice which 'transports you to an extremely personal space', Earmilk tipped Bella as 'one who is going to make waves in the years to come'.
