Belle Plaine is a singer, a songwriter and an inventive independent musician raised on the Canadian prairies near the hamlet of Fosston, Saskatchewan – population: 45. The ingenuity, lonesome yearning and collaborative work ethic of country life infiltrates her songwriting, her sound and her methods. Belle’s album Malice, Mercy, Grief & Wrath (October 19, 2018) highlights her tremendous voice and prodigious songwriting abilities, and showcases her varied musical influences from Link Wray and the Everly Brothers, to Cole Porter and Neko Case. The record is produced by Jason Plumb [Colter Wall, The Dead South].

As an avid collaborator she has performed her music with the Regina Symphony Orchestra, was a guest vocalist on Colter Wall’s breakthrough debut album, Imaginary Appalachia, and saw her co-writing and harmony-singing chops featured on Blake Berglund’s 2017 release, Realms.
