Bella Hardy has completed a Kickstarter campaign to begin recording her new album in January 2017. Bella’s last album ‘With the Dawn,’ released in 2015, was an album of originals that received 4 and 5-star reviews across the press (read our review here) on the back of which she spread her wings touring widely, including dates in the US, China and Australia. Watch this short documentary about her time in Yunnan:
During her time travelling, she was been busy writing new songs and in her Kickstarter introduction revealed that whilst it’s been a very busy year, making ends meet has proven difficult.
Her last album was released on her own label ‘Noe Records,’ named after the river in Edale. Whilst it’s likely that the new album, scheduled for the Autumn, will also be released on Noe Records she’s not ruling out working with a bigger label if she can get the right kind of deal.
This collective funding approach is by no means new these days, but it’s great to see so many people get behind an artist, which in this instance well exceeded the initial goal and will hopefully, smooth those choppy waters of getting her music out there to fans.
With this in mind, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate that successful first step with this new recording of Blue Christmas, performed with Iain Thomson…Enjoy!
