Belle will be opening for the UK’s singer/songwriter Sophie Barker (http://www NULL.sophiebarker NULL.com/), famed for her role in the UK band Zero 7 (http://www NULL.zero7 NULL.co NULL.uk/about NULL.htm), who’s runaway success in the UK led them to win a Grammy nomination in the US for The Garden, after Simple Things, which became their third consecutive gold-seller in the UK.
“Sophie’s music really peaks to the soul. She really reveals a lot of herself. I admire that. I admire it because it’s one of the most real things an artist can do. It’s something I also try to do in my music, so in a way we’re like fellow travellers. Two artists on the path together.”
The magic of Belle’s music in the eyes of many listeners and fans, comes heavily from the artist’s innate compassion.
As one fan will attest; “When Belle gets up there on stage, I real fells like she cares about me. Se cares about me as a listener but it’s deeper than that, I truly feel she cares about me as a person, and that’s special. It’s really special.”
Belle will play an exotic set, specially made for the venue.
“I can’t reveal everything – but there will be some electronic elements in there. There will be some acoustic elements, and there might even be a few acapella moments in there as well. We’ll see where the spirit takes me.”
As audience anticipation builds, fans are already lining up to see the dynamic duo, Belle and Sophie Barker, as they get set to take over The Studio at Webster Hall on 24 April.
