“[Bill and the Belles] is committed to helping early country music remain appreciated – not just replicated.”
— Rolling Stone
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 East Tennessee-based group performs original songs inspired by a golden era of music, specifically the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. As the house band for Farm and Fun Time on Radio Bristol, the band has shared the stage with some of the nation’s top roots artists. Band members include Kris Truelsen (vocals, guitar), Kalia Yeagle (vocals, fiddle), Grace Van’t Hof (vocals, banjo), and Karl Zerfas (bass). Their debut album DreamSongs, Etc. releases August 24th on Jalopy Records.
