We're the Black River Belles, and we have an album's worth of new songs that we REALLY want you to hear. Help us out?
Q: WHO ARE THE BLACK RIVER BELLES?
A: A group of strong Southern women studying music, life, love and a whole slew of other things at Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music in Oberlin, Ohio.
Q: WHAT DO THE BELLES PLAY?
A: Good music. Music that you totally want to listen to. Music that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Well, or at least we hope it will.
SO MANY SONGS. SO MUCH TIME. Not a whole lot of dollars.
That's our story. We've been playing together for a while now, and while we're definitely getting gigs and all, we've discovered that FINISHING the record we started earlier this year is going to be a bit more expensive than we thought.
The money raised by this project will help to cover studio time and manufacturing of the new record. The album will include some folk standards and a ton of new originals. Three part harmony. Double-stops. Helena belting. These are things you need, and now we need YOUR HELP to make it happen!
