In a time when popular artists are virtually indistinguishable, the world is introduced to a young girl who is about to change everything. bELA, born into a Portuguese heritage was given a diary for her seventh birthday. Expression as she had known it would never be the same. The self-described "loner" quickly became addicted to the release offered by a clean page and a sharp pencil. Soon after, she began adding melodies to her diary entries with an old keyboard her father had bought her for Christmas.Years later, she would take her personal songs to the local coffeehouse, performing every Sunday night. Following a whole year spent writing and performing in Europe, bELA wandered to Los Angeles where, along with her brother, basilioFERNANDOferreira, she began writing what would eventually become her debut album; "...the death of gypsyX". By the album's completion, bELA had already been invited to perform on the televised LA Nitelife, and had the pleasure of appearing on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Her humbly demoed album previews had already acquired rave reviews from UK's infamous, Rhythm Magazine and gained her regular rotation on PulseNow! Satellite Radio. The freshly released album is currently brewing a craze in various nations as bELA's first single, "Do You Care?" is making a comfortable home on Portugal, US indie and Canadian radio and has just been placed in 'Morangos Com Acucar', Portugal's leading primetime series. The stir comes as no surprise to the album's production team; Dale Penner (Nickelback, Holly McNarland), Mike Fraser (Guns N' Roses, Aersomith), Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins), Jim Barr (Peter Gabriel, Portishead) who saw potential in even bELA's earliest demos. The ride has just begun for bELA and there is no telling where her love for music and performing will take her. Her powerful words and hypnotic stage presence will surely see no boundaries....
