JULY 2013 WAMI FEATURED ARTIST
The Belle Weather is a concert band.
We are acoustic guitars, stories, and melody. We are the resonant, pounding beat of a kick drum, the deep pulse of bass guitar, and the siren’s wail of an over-driven tube amp. We are open fields and skyscrapers – equal parts modern folk and indie rock – a fusion of inspired anthems and the art of simple storytelling.
From the local coffee shop to the largest festival stages, we’ve built a reputation as one of the most diverse, polished, and passionate original bands on the Wisconsin scene. With each new song we continue to explore and evolve – invoking styles that range from raw, powerful grunge rock through intricate acoustic folk and lush soundscapes. We take these songs to the stage with a rare combination of gritty, sweat-drenched energy and honest, heart-felt sonic grace. Every concert is crafted to be an experience like none other.
In the end, we have taken a great many influences and blended them into a sound that is uniquely our own. Soaring melodies emerge from the urgent sounds of guitar, bass, and drums. Impassioned, soulful vocals whisper, roar, haunt, and illuminate – leading the audience through stories of love and loss, hope and doubt, fury, optimism, and pure unbound wonder.
We invite you to come and listen, and promise to give you everything we’ve got.
