Happy Again is out today!
“Happy Again introduces some new textures to the band’s sound… but the fundamental, classic country, gather-round-the-radio sounds that Bill and the Belles tap into haven’t changed a bit, and neither has their charm.” -No Depression
“You’ll get a kick out of it. It’s a welcome reprieve from the always raging storms of life.” -Farce the Music
“The entire production is delightful… Expertly played… Reeks of 60s melodic magic.” -American Highways
“It’s Americana as dark comedy.” -Tinnitist
“[Happy Again] delivers lilting, upbeat melodies, excellent harmony vocal work, and a pervasively playful mood.” -Jeff Burger
Top 50 on the Americana Charts!
We are thrilled to crack Top 50 on the American Charts with a debut at #41, and to be one of the most added this week nationally! We also made Top 20 on the Alt Country charts. Thank you to all the DJs playing us around the country!
Y’all, the challenges we faced to put this record out were no joke, yet we persevered and did it and we’re so happy we did!!! As many of these songs were born out of hardship, we hope this record helps provide comfort and a pick me up to those who might be in need of a friend or serve as a reminder that hard times do in fact pass.
We are so grateful to the community of people that helped make “Happy Again” a fully realized project. Huge thanks to our Producer Teddy Thompson for his expertise, and creative vision and for keeping us directed during such a whirlwind recording session. Our friend who wears all the hats, the amazingly talented Josh Littleton. Jim Price and Bobby Starnes at Hat Creek Recording Company.
