HerSong: Belle-Skinner, Bridging European Folk Tunes to Contemporary Pop Hits

A woman in an orange sweater standing in front of a rust colored wall.

Belle-Skinner was named one of "8 Female Musicians From Upstate New York You Should Be Listening To Right Now." She crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads. Her songs are nuanced, with layered stories that bridge the gap between past and present. Her influences cover a broad range of genres - from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock. The word "haunting" is often used when describing Belle-Skinner's sound - maybe more appropriately "hauntingly beautiful." Her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, Angel Olsen, and early St. Vincent.

Since she started recording music in 2015 she has released 7 records with the most recent being a tribute cover album of Joni Mitchell tunes, released in March 2022, Belle-Skinner Sings Joni Mitchell Live.
