From the foothills of Blue Ridge in Johnson City, Tennessee, Bill and the Belles captivate fans with rich vocal harmonies and simple catchy melodies, built on a strong foundation of love for early American music. With their enchanting debut album, DreamSongs, Etc., Bill and the Belles capture the freewheeling, lighthearted approach to music that has endeared them to listeners of every generation. With a spirited sound that falls somewhere between old-time country and vaudeville, the group puts its own spin on a golden era of music, specifically the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s
Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for a Big Blend Radio conversation with lead singer and guitarist Kris Truelsen, who discusses the history of Americana music as well their album DreamSongs, Etc. that was recorded in just two days inside a beautiful old farmhouse in the rolling hills of Southeast Virginia, and released on Jalopy Records.
