""What It’s Really Like to be a Woman in the Music Industry""

"So far my career has mainly consisted of writing for other artists and for TV and film placements. I’m grateful to have learned the ropes collaborating behind the scenes with an array of insanely talented, seasoned songwriters and producers.

However, about two years ago I started noticing that most of my writing sessions were for or with young female artists who signed a record deal quickly, before really knowing what they wanted to say or how they wanted to say it.

Simultaneously, there seemed to be a consistent pressure for an artist to focus more on sex appeal rather than on quality. Some of these women felt pressure to say and become something they weren’t really comfortable with, and with pressure to also deliver a finished product quickly, most of them would blindly agree despite their inner instinct telling them something wasn’t right. They needed someone in their corner telling them it was ok to disagree and to speak their mind. Not to mention, sometimes the so-called “flaws” in their songs were actually what made their project more unique and interesting.

This became such a consistent struggle that I set out to create a community of female songwriters and producers whose focus was more on artistry and integrity rather than the superficial smoke-and-mirrors. I wanted to provide a creatively safe space where the female artists I was working with could develop and work on their craft.

After a while, I started getting sessions based on this reputation. Artists, mostly women, were expressing that they wanted a place where they wouldn’t be talked over and felt comfortable sharing personal information. They didn’t want to worry about if what they making was “pretty” or not, whether it was a known artist with sensitive information or a young one just trying to figure it out. I wanted to be a vehicle to empower and encourage all women to take risks, be authentic, and to explore creatively.

Meanwhile, when it came to my own work I, too, wanted to get back to creating in a real way, looking at things through my own lens instead of the lens of what would be considered “most marketable.” I also wanted to pull together a community of creative women in a special manner.

I had the privilege of collaborating with AG, one of my favorite female producers, on our own interpretation of REM’s “Losing My Religion.” We were both REM fans and had talked about doing a dark, haunting version of it for a music video. It’s vulnerable portrayal of darkness and light really resonated with us, and she’s brilliant at creating a safe space for an artist to really explore and be authentic. (For example, she recently slayed Ciara’s cinematic rendition of “Paint it Black” that was featured in Billboard & Rolling Stone.)

Honestly, it had been a while since I was in a music video and I was nervous at the start of this project. I am easily affected by directors and it’s easy for me to shut down when I feel self-conscious. I didn’t want that to happen for this video. I really wanted to be comfortable and focused and I still have flashbacks from being told that I don’t look pretty when I cry on camera — that messed with my head a bit. For many women (myself included) focusing on “looking pretty” rather than just being in the moment, creating, can easily make performances stale and generic.

Most women understand the need for a safe space and how uncomfortable or degrading it feels to be seen as an object rather than a human being. This empathy is a woman’s strength and why I was really excited to work with women in entertainment who supported this project and understood my concerns. Together we worked to ensure that I, as well as the other actors, felt emotionally safe and protected to create something artistically raw and authentic.

That aside, I really wanted to bring more attention (and business) to talented women in the filming industry. My friend and talented photographer/director Jen Rosenstein, who has impeccable taste and a great eye, connected with our idea instantly and built on it with keen ideas of her own. Jen and I were strategic in choosing a very talented, all-female crew. It really brought out such raw and honest performances from all the actors and we’re all very excited about the final product. We wanted this whole video to be vulnerable and authentic to match the song’s message.

I’ve also decided to donate a portion of the streaming proceeds from this single to the National Center of Victims of Crime. The song and video’s portrayal of darkness and light is relatable to everyone, especially give all that’s going on in the world right now. I wanted to help out in any way I could and I’m always looking for ways to point to a light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m grateful for the amazing circle of women I’m surrounded by in this industry and excited for what’s on the horizon ahead. If you’re a female creative just starting out, be encouraged. Give yourself a little grace because it takes time to figure out your message as an artist. Don’t let bad experiences make you bitter; use your mistakes as stepping stones.

Last but not least, be willing to be vulnerable enough to collaborate with other women and support your sisters. We all need (and thrive) off of each other’s talents." - Darling Magazine


"“Bang Bang (Remember My Name)” Single Premiere"

Lady Gaga. Pharell Williams. Bruno Mars. Laura Pergolizzi – a.k.a. LP. Phoebe Ryan. The list of songwriters turned pop stars is lengthy. Could BeLL be the next one to the join the list?

The twentysomething, Texas native’s résumé is already extensive. She’s worked under the likes of Giorgio Moroder (Daft Punk) & David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, 5 Seconds of Summer) and has written songs for Natalie Imbruglia and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. Her music has also been featured on commercials and television shows, Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. Momentum has been building for BeLL, but it was two months ago when her star started shine extremely brightly.

In September, she shared a haunting, sultry cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion”, which shot up to the top of the Hype Machine charts. Today, she will seek to reflect her success with her new, original single, “Bang Bang (Remember My Name)”, which she is releasing in its entirety today in this premiere.

Television fanatics, particularly those of ABC dramas, may recognize the song, as it has been used in the second trailer of the channel’s forthcoming, new series, Famous In Love, which stars Bella Thorne (release date April 2017). This glimpse of “Bang Bang (Remember My Name)” tells you everything you need to know about it – cinematic, dramatic, and heart-stopping. This is dark-pop at its finest – a song that will stop you dead in your tracks as the music soars and BeLL’s thunderous lyrics pierce deep in your soul.

Not surprisingly, the young singer-songwriter had to reach deep inside her to write this song. As she shares:

The song was written from a dark, raw place. It stems from a false sense of power you desperately grab at when someone you love no longer loves you back. You know they’re already gone, but you’re so blinded by your own pain that getting the last word in feels like the only way to get your power back in the moment.

The lyric video and the audio versions are provided below. Take a listen and bookmark BeLL’s name in your music library because you will surely being here more from her. - The Revue


"Wonky Sensitive's Review on BeLL's "Bang Bang (Remember My Name)""

Hot on the heels of her haunting rendition of REM's "Losing My Religion", which reached #1 on Hype Machine and garnered her the praise and support from both industry tastemakers and bloggers alike, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter BeLL takes another massive step forward with her sizzling new single called "Bang Bang (Remember My Name)", a song that she co-wrote with Tyler Shamy and Wolves and has already made its way into the new trailer for ABC Family's Famous In Love.

Speaking on the track, BeLL says:

"The song was written from a dark, raw place. It stems from a false sense of power you desperately grab at when someone you love no longer loves you back. You know they’re already gone, but you’re so blinded by your own pain that getting the last word in feels like the only way to get your power back in the moment."

Previously, BeLL polished her craft and earned her stripes writing for other artists, including Natalie Imbruglia and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue. She's also collaborated with renowned producer/songwriters Giorgio Moroder and David Hodges (Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson, 5 Seconds of Summer) and had songs placed in a Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial and popular TV shows such as The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

Always conscious of giving back (proceeds from "Losing My Religion" were donated to the National Center for Victims of Crime), BeLL spends much of her spare time volunteering as a keys instructor at LA's Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls and at Awaken Arts, teaching songwriting to at-risk youth girls. - Wonky Sensitive

"BeLL: Bang Bang (Remember My Name) Single Review"

"Way back in September I came across Texan born BeLL who’s a talented singer/ songwriter who now resides in Los Angeles. Her haunting rendition of R.E.M’s Losing My Religion was so unique it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge. If you are not aware of BeLL I advise you to check her out pronto. Losing My Religion reached #1 on Hype Machine and earned her plenty of industry and blog buzz. She’s also written for the likes of Natalie Imbruglia and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. Also BeLL has collaborated with renowned producer/songwriters Giorgio Moroder (Daft Punk) and David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, 5 Seconds of Summer) and had songs placed in a Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial and popular TV shows The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

Now she is back with an outstanding original which comes in the form of Bang Bang (Remember My Name). BeLL co-wrote this powerful song with Tyler Shamy and Wolves. Also it has already made it’s way into the new trailer for ABC Family’s “Famous In Love” and is destined to build BeLL’s rapidly growing fanbase.

Here is what BeLL has to say about this majesical track “The song was written from a dark, raw place. It stems from a false sense of power you desperately grab at when someone you love no longer loves you back. You know they’re already gone, but you’re so blinded by your own pain that getting the last word in feels like the only way to get your power back in the moment”.

I have nothing but praise for this delectable song, BeLL’s vocals are sheer perfection plus it also shows off her sublime songwriting skills. Now Bang Bang (Remember My Name) had me hooked from the word go. One word to describe this cut would be epic. BeLL’s vocal tones were extremely sultry and also I could pick up on shades of jazz within this classy cut. Those sumptuous lyrics were extremely catchy, that chorus packed a punch and all in all Bang Bang (Remember My Name) completely mesmerised me. BeLL’s vocal tones on this number reminded me of Lana Del Rey. Anyhow based on this BeLL is one name I wont forget and I anticipate hearing more sizzling originals in the future." - Music is My Radar


"New Music Friday"

BeLL's “Bang Bang (Remember My Name)” is an excellent pop song. There’s a bit of the Adele style of “big vocal” here, but also a thoughtful and engaging lyrical style. This is the stuff hits are made of. BeLL’s vocals are powerful and consistently on point. The song’s message is a bit cryptic, I think about breakup sex, but still the overall feel of the song makes you think it could work with a remix in a club or just as is on a pop playlist. - Ear to the Ground

It's a low-key anthem that dovetails with the #MeToo movement. - Elle

Bio

You may not be familiar with the name BELLSAINT now, but with a sound reminiscent of a modern-day Nancy Sinatra meets Sia and Adele, this siren is on the edge of becoming a household name. Having released haunting singles and powerhouse debuts as BeLL, the new single “Landmines” will be BELLSAINT's explosive debut.

While she may just be dipping her foot in the water of making a career out of being an artist, BELLSAINT is no stranger to music. BELLSAINT (Caroline Brooks) began polishing her craft and earned her stripes writing for other artists, including Natalie Imbruglia and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. In time, she collaborated with renowned producer/songwriters Giorgio Moroder (Daft Punk), Paul Williams (David Bowie, Daft Punk), David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera), & Rob Kleiner (Sia, Andra Day, Britney Spears, David Guetta), and has had songs placed in a Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial, ADIDAS ad, as well as popular TV shows like RiverdaleShameless, Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, NBC's Rise, The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little LiarsFamous in Love, and well as the title theme song for Tyler Perry's film Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.

Hot on the heels of her haunting cover of REM’s “Losing My Religion” (under the artist name BeLL) - which reached #1 on Hype Machine and earned her plenty of industry and blog buzz - BELLSAINT took another massive step forward with the sizzling original “Bang Bang (Remember My Name).” After her debut as an official SXSW artist playing the exclusive Grammy Museum showcase, the powerful song made it’s way into the trailer for Freeform’s Famous In Love and is still building her rapidly growing fanbase, gaining love from Extra TV & prompting Us Weekly to call BELLSAINT their favorite new artist.

Upon the release of her single "Karma," Refinery29 listed it as #3 on "The Best Song Lyrics of 2018 (So Far)", and Elle listed her as #6 on "The Best Songs of 2018 (So Far)." After playing a tour opening for Silento and sharing the stage with artists like Lord Huron, Ocean Park Standoff, and The Warbly Jets; word of BELLSAINT has spread like wildfire.

Always conscious of giving back (proceeds from “Losing My Religion” are being donated to the National Center for Victims of Crime), BELLSAINT spends her spare time volunteering as a coach at LA's Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls and teaching songwriting to at-risk youth girls at Awaken Arts.
