Growing up with four siblings in the heart of the British countryside, her mother would sing classical music and listen to Simon & Garfunkel whilst her dad would play the blues and pop at church. When her dad converted the garage to a recording studio, she would escape there to sing.
Around 11, Bella started writing songs acapella and discovered the piano. “I would close my eyes and go into a whole other world and be completely unselfconscious. That freedom became addictive. I wanted to sing for something bigger than myself. A reason beyond what I see. I guess every artist needs something to draw from – and that’s my well.”
At 17, after a break-up, she stumbled across the songs of Jeff Buckley "I loved his hunger and the raw nature of his delivery, it was something that stood out to me and I admired it. To really sing without holding anything back. I think that’s rare and it takes a lot of inner strength.”
Her spellbinding vocal and willingness to stand up for what she believes in proves that there is much more than meets the eye when it comes to Bella McKendree.
Trellis Records released Bella McKendree's Debut E.P 'Waiting' on 18th August 2017. Produced by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Brett Shaw (Florence + The Machine, Daughter)
BBC INTRODUCING played 'Grieve' in Sept 2017 and announced 'Baby Let's Fall' RECORD OF THE WEEK with airplay each Saturday night.
"Bella's voice, charm and piano playing ability all combined to create an effortless performance able to relentlessly hold anybody’s and everybody’s attention. When a singer so young can emote so successfully through her music it’s really something to behold, Bella McKendree is a musician well worth making an effort to see; I promise you’re missing out if you don’t."
