Bella McKendree

Freshly Squeezed Stage

Growing up with four siblings in the heart of the British countryside, song-writing has always been an escape for Bella McKendree, helping develop her own identity. Her mother would sing classical music and listen to Simon & Garfunkel and The Fugees whilst her dad would play the blues and gospel pop at church. When her dad created a recording studio in the garden, she would escape there to sing. 

Her spellbinding vocal and willingness to stand up for what she believes in proves that there is much more than meets the eye when it comes to Bella McKendree.
