Andrew Belle
Chicago-based Andrew Belle has made a name for himself as one of our more compelling songwriters since releasing his debut album The Ladder in 2010. Though that album held strong at number one for several weeks on iTunes's singer-songwriter chart and earned dozens of television and film licenses, Belle boldly followed a new muse on the album's electronic, alternative follow-up, Black Bear. His third and latest album Dive Deep doubles down on the ethereal electronic sound of Black Bear, and sees Belle pushing himself to new depths as a songwriter, a vocalist, and a composer. Soaring choruses and moody arrangements abound on Dive Deep, a thoughtfully crafted and deeply felt album that deserves consideration among peers like James Blake and Bon Iver.

Echoes of the sweetness of Joni Mitchell and the urgency of Alanis Morissette can be found wrapped in Eileen Graham’s wide-ranging voice. But this singer-songwriter sings her own song. Her signature fast vibrato, sultry overtones and aching sky-high notes are said to “capture audiences with her pure and emotionally-loaded sound,” (Beyond Race Magazine). Her album, One of Those Girls (2012), is an honest and simply done, piano-driven collection that feels cozy, reminiscent of a cup of tea shared with your best friend. Produced by My Favorite Highway frontman Dave Cook (O.A.R., Paradise Fears), the debut solo journey is colored by delightful hooks and a wash of uncertainty, leaving listeners transfixed. In 2014, Graham reached #1 on the regional pop charts.

After years of performing as a solo acoustic act, Graham formed a band in college under the name Noble Air (previously YouMe&theShaker) which scored a deal with 80 One Records. Graham was later featured on the premiere webside of Aux Send, landing in the Top 10 of New & Noteworthy Artists on iTunes in 2011. After a band breakup and losing her voice for an entire week, Graham had a now-or-never moment, deciding to re-launch her solo career. “I was pretty terrified, but I couldn’t stand the idea of not doing music or not singing again, even if I no longer had a band behind me. I had just gotten used to the collaboration and camaraderie with others and began to lose my voice – literally and figuratively-speaking. I realized I needed to get back to what I’m supposed to be doing and refocus,” she says.

“This is the first album in which I felt like my vision was put into place,” she says, noting that all songs were produced with just keys, guitar, vocals and a few loops. “The entire project is left bare-faced and open to interpretation, just like many of the stories I tell.”
