Bella Frances is a triple threat performer and songwriter who has made an impression on the music scene through her distinct new generation folk-pop sound and lyric-driven songs.

Audience members and festival-goers who have seen Bella perform at festivals like Springtide, Roots North and Mariposa Folk Festival all highlight the same traits in their praise: her intriguing storytelling, intimate vocals and poetic lyricism. Bella strives to create songs that paint pictures in the minds of her listeners and engage the heart with compelling narratives that, while deeply personal, also speak to universal feelings.

"I once heard Picasso said that in order to draw, one must close her eyes and sing. In order for me to sing and write songs, I need to close my eyes and draw," the self-described pop-poet says of her creative process.

Over the summer and fall of 2023 Bella released her first 3 singles and debut music video as well as an original holiday tune to enthusiastic fans who are eager to hear what will come next. The twenty-year-old singer-songwriter has collaborated on these songs with Juno-winning producers Rob Szabo (Peter Katz, Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie) and Joel Schwartz (Jadea Kelly, Kelley Smith). 

"I love how Bella paints pictures of where she is ... and how she is very conversational with her lyrics. It makes them that much more relatable and many writers miss the power of relatability."
-  Dan Swinimer, Songwriter (US top 30 hit, Ready to Roll), Producer (Madeline Merlo, JoJo Mason), Manicdown Music (Founder)
