Rarely does modern music earn the badge timeless, but BEL cuts through the noise. Hailing from the small town of Clovis, California, Isabel Whelan crafts nostalgic songs with honesty and attention to detail, occupying the intersection of indie, pop, and folk, while taking cues from the likes of Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, and Mazzy Star.
After the 2022 release of her sophomore EP, Jet Lag, BEL landed on a handful of end-of-year “Artists to Watch” lists, and is continuing the momentum with new music in 2023. The first two singles, "Are You Okay?" and "Woman on Fire", have received ample support from Sirius XM, Pandora, Spotify, Apple, and several publications. With a 3rd EP underway and her first festival announcement, 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year of releases and live performances for BEL.
