Emerging indie-string Americana band, Bellehouse, drop their first self-titled album. Groundsounds recently referred to the band’s sound as “intriguing” and having “beautifully arranged strings and impressive vocal harmonies.”

Formed in 2013 and currently based in Brooklyn, the 5-piece are a cross between down-home roots music and intellectual folk-rock. Bellehouse delivers a sound that embraces a variety of genres — from Celtic traditional and folk revival to soul and Motown. The close-knit group consists of Jess Taylor Clinton (vocals, guitar, songwriting), Sarah Elizabeth Haines (vocals, viola), Catie Friel (vocals), Nick Lenchner (bass) and Ryan Gross (banjo, vocals). Elmore Magazine says, “working at this crossroads of folk and Americana (plus a few other genres) as well as almost anyone today are Brooklyn’s Bellehouse.”
