  • (1888PressRelease) July 29, 2013 - Fresh off the success of her debut album and New York tour, emerging folk synth-pop artist, Belle, is back from her latest studio sessions with an intensely honest single, Lambs to Slaughter, highlighting the atrocity of live organ harvesting in China(according to The Epoch Times)*.

    The single drops during events raising awareness for the 14th anniversary of the persecution of Falun Gong2 (presale: July 16, on sale: July 23). In 2001, Belle was arrested and deported from China for a human rights appeal on Tiananmen Square and named a "Woman of Conscience" by Amnesty International.

    Lambs to Slaughter is co-written by Sterling Campbell (B52s, David Bowie), and ft. guest emcee, Rise-Ascend (f/k/a Ankh Amen Ra). It touches upon China's Communist leaders profiteering from illegal organ trade from prisoners of conscience. It is the first release from Belle's new album, Speck of Dust (Ingenious Records), set for release Sept. 24, specially mastered for iTunes.

    Belle's music is infused with rich folk melodies and lyrics blended into a pop soundscape with driving beats. She and her band (Nemo Rebic, guitar, Kay Rubacek, synth) will be performing @ NY festivals and venues throughout the summer, including Pianos on July 11 and Bethel Woods on Sept. 29. Check for more dates.

    Belle's stirring vocals and raw honesty are reminiscent of artists like Alanis Morissette, Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, with a depth of musical delivery that was witnessed on live TV on MNN's Sissy Gamache Show. "It's almost like you want to cry when you sing... It's so beautiful," said Sissy. "I love that because everybody's so concerned about hiding everything. But it's not about hiding, it's about showing too, I see that with you. It's very, very touching."

    Belle's debut album, Never Too Late (Ingenious Records, 2011), received numerous accolades, including being selected into the 2012 Grammy entry ballot, featured on iTunes as "New & Noteworthy", played on AOL's CD Listening Party, college radio, and over 200 online radio stations worldwide, including, Napster, Spotify, Rdio, Women of Substance, Indie Castle, and WITRR Radio Network.
