"Track review"

NEW MUSIC | IMOGEN BEL

Up and coming artist, Imogen Bel’s debut single, ‘Snow Covered Hill’ is a beautiful example of stripping back to the basics. I love a song that can instantly take me away to a special place in my mind after only hearing it once. The song itself is very simple, yet highly effective, and her vocal style is elegant without being over-the-top. The harmonies throughout the song really blew me away, and her use of call and response really provided the piece with additional depth. What I loved the most about this song was all the different textures. Her experimentation with instruments like the accordion and cello really gave the song some uniqueness, and my only wish is that I got to hear more of it. I thought the lyrics were beautiful and the haunting timbre present in the accompaniment did a marvelous job of bringing the ‘snow like’ imagery to life. Getting noticed in this industry can be extremely difficult challenging, but with well-known Australian artists like John Butler Trio and Matt Corby stepping up to the fame pedestal and constructing a yellow brick road for aspiring Australian artists to reach the same international status; it’s only a matter of time before Imogen Bel reaches her destination. - Semplesize


"Live show review"

Newcastle’s Imogen Bel had the most intriguing set of the night. The combination of her keyboard skills and those of her accompanying cellist created very powerful moods for each song. Whether it was the quirky nostalgia of high school parties in “Under The Moon”, or the moving “The Golden Age of Cinema”, Imogen held the audience captivated. Between songs, she told the audience about the events that had inspired her music, which kept everybody involved and the energy high. The highlight of her set was “Fighting The Good Fight”, which featured some of the most impressive instrumental work of the night — and was apparently about her old landlady. Enjoy her while you’ve got her, Newcastle: we’ll want to hear more of her in Sydney. - The AU Review


"Live show review - support for Andy Bull"

Coming along for the ride was new pop-folk songstress Imogen Bel. Equipped with her Nord keyboard, Bel struck a lone silhouette whilst charming with her powerful and technically brilliant voice.

The rendition of ‘Snow Covered Hill’ caught fans in a trance while her beautiful voice, gorgeous production and tremendous songwriting took centre stage. A great performance for the guest star, Imogen Bel is definitely one to look out for. - Tone Deaf


"Music video premier"

Toronto based Australian singer-songwriter Imogen Bel has just released her first ever live music video and it’s stunning. The video is for the track “Golden Age of Cinema” and was filmed at the Mazzoleni Hall at The Royal Conservatory in Toronto. - Timber and Steel

Bio

Imogen Bel has been building a unique and important identity in the alternative-pop scene since her musically formative years growing up in Newcastle, NSW. Bel’s debut single ‘Snow Covered Hill’, produced in collaboration with Josh Schuberth (Josh Pyke, Dustin Tebbutt), was released in 2013 to great acclaim and enthusiasm. The strength of that success behind her, Bel spent the following years developing an exciting new voice as a songwriter - using the warmth and folk sensibilities of ‘Snow Covered Hill’ as the foundation on which to build something even more sensational.

Imogen Bel’s new single ‘I Want the World’ is daring and playful, affectionately touching on the music Bel has explored so far – whilst declaring itself as totally original, a new adventure. Bridging the divide between radio pop and indie darling, ‘I Want the World’ is suggestive of Regina Spektor and Bruno Mars – a sparkling, tenacious anthem to the art of keeping on.
