Bella White’s live performances are as captivating as her music – Rolling Stone recently took notice and included her in their ‘Best Things We Saw’ roundup of AmericanaFest. White will appear at this year’s SXSW and will also make appearances at major U.S. festivals throughout the spring and summer including Stagecoach, Merlefest, Under The Big Sky and more. Today White also announces further dates in the UK including Black Deer Festival, as well as dates in Europe and her home country of Canada. All tour dates listed below.
Calgary-born singer/songwriter Bella White made her mark on the scene with the release of her debut album Just Like Leaving. The LP caught the attention of Rounder Records which signed her last year. While traditional bluegrass originated in Appalachia, the genre has surely found a safe and loving Canadian home via her songwriting. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter and instrumentalist shies away from modern and fussy arrangements and instead brings a traditional style of music into the contemporary moment by personalising it to her own experiences. White has shown herself to be a star student of the bluegrass genre, with something new to bring to the table. Her ability to translate modern experience to an old sound is seamless and compelling and permeates the boundaries of a regional genre with authentic singing and songwriting.
