Having recently played at British Summer Time in Hyde Park, The Great Escape festival and a sold-out headline date at The Grace in London, you can also catch Bellah live this summer at Camp Bestival, Splendour, Brighton Pride and on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds festivals.
Adopting the storytelling specificities of country music and pairing it with humongous hooks to killer effect, Bellah Mae is quickly making a name for herself within the pop sphere. A true pop storyteller, recent track ‘Drama King’ proudly holds up a middle finger to toxic relationships and melodramatic partners, while debut single ‘Boyfriend Of The Year’ which has picked up over 10 million streams talks about watching a toxic ex-boyfriend treat their new partner with the respect they never showed you. Bellah’s distinctive writing style incorporates her influences ranging from Dolly Parton to Avril Lavigne and Miley Cyrus. Because of this, her early sound swayed more towards country music, which caught the attention of Dolly Parton’s manager Danny Nozell who has acted as a mentor for Bellah, inviting her to perform in a concert series in the UK and in Nashville.
Despite this early affinity for country, in the tradition of other Gen Z artists her music defies categorisation, incorporating ever expanding sonic touchstones to create something that feels wholly unique. With fierce ambitions, heaps of charm and an arsenal of upcoming bangers, Bellah Mae is a big one to watch for 2023!
