'Bella White is sublime, Appalachian heartbreak' - Rolling Stone Country

While traditional bluegrass is usually associated with the American South, the genre has surely found a safe and loving Canadian home in the form of Calgary-born singer/songwriter Bella White. White’s debut album Just Like Leaving, rings out as a coming of age anthem. The twenty year-old singer/songwriter and instrumentalist brings a traditional style of music into the contemporary moment, personalizing it to her own experiences.

“I want people my age to hear my music, and think, actually Bluegrass is kind of cool”, she says. Throughout her album "Just Like Leaving", White finds her strength in leaving home for the first time, with songs of heartbreak and loneliness that demonstrate both an old soul and a young heart.

Produced by fiddle player Patrick M’Gonigle (The Lonely Heartstring Band), who will also be performing along with Banjo phenomenon Allison de Groot.
