Alt-country from three badass beauties. Good songs. Smokin' fiddles.
Belle Starr’s self-titled album orbits themes of love and identity. “Now whatcha gonna do when the planet shifts,” asks the opening track, John Hiatt's “Cry Love,” a catchy staccato kick-off that immediately dispels any assumptions that Belle Starr makes typical fiddle music. “New Girl Now,” penned by Jack Marks, is a tale of moving on while trying not to look back. This lively brush-off is told with countrified toe-tapping sass. Other highlights include the gritty romance of Springsteen's “Tougher Than The Rest,” and the graceful battle cry of Justin Rutledge's “Be A Man.”
Band-mates Miranda, Kendel and Stephanie make an impressive trio, and bring experience from all genres. As busy solo artists, Miranda is a member of indie darlings Great Lake Swimmers; Kendel is well known in the Americana world, in part from her work with “Wild Thing” songwriter Chip Taylor; and Stephanie is a prize-winning fiddler and dancer from Ottawa.
Lydia Hol is a Vancouver based poet-songstress-raconteur. Just home from an extensive tour across Canada, Lydia was recently named a Regional Finalist in CBC's Searchlight for Canada's Best New Artist. She honed her craft from studies in jazz vocals and english literature, enhanced by a period of immersion in traditional Irish folk music.
Lydia will play guitar, mandolin and bodhran, and will be accompanied by Leathan Milne.
