"Pop music for 'grown-ups', who'd a thunk it?" -- Rob Bush; Writer, The San Diego Reader

Mother Belle's "Hand Made" Nominated for a 2014 San Diego Music Award: Best Local Recording!

What the heck am I listening to? Is it Rock? Is it New Wave? Is it Pop? Country? Circus Sideshow music? Am I in space? Who am I? Did I feed the cat?

These are the important, burning questions Mother Belle dare to make you ask. We write words to get in your mind and stay there, emerging from your own lips later in the grocery store as everyone else in the bread aisle becomes entranced by your sudden and glorious vibrato. We write melodies to make your toe tap at your sister's graduation, while everyone around you is desperately shushing your feet. We have more hooks than your great-Uncle's tackle box.

But don't take our word for it. Pour some sugar in your ears, baby.

New Upcoming Show! 

April and Junior will be performing an acoustic set at KPRi's Brunch event on Sunday, September 7th at On the Border Cafe.  Kendra Checketts opens at 11:30, there will be food and drink specials, giveaways, there's an all ages show, and this list is getting out of hand.
Bring friends! 


Prepare to be dazzled, tickled, and perhaps a little... unsettled by Mother Belle's latest video: "Hand Made."

You can't escape the dancing wooden boy.
