Bella Rios is a multi-instrumentalist Singer-Songwriter residing in Chicago, Illinois, playing guitar, piano, bass and saxophone and guess what she is fifteen years old.
Her newest single, Under The Waves, premiered her, shows her lyrical and vocal prowess. Her songwriting shows an understanding of the world beyond her age, if we were throwing comparisons to other songsters at this age then perhaps think a female Jackson Browne.
We asked Bella what spark ignited the song and how did she find the inspiration to complete the songwriting process. She told us “A few years ago, people were spreading rumours about me at school and I lost some of my closest friends because of it. Under The Waves was written for a true friend who stuck with me through everything.”
“I’ve been working on really trying to find and further develop my own sound over the past few months. Under The Waves is a song that was influenced a lot by my acoustic/rock inspirations. I’m really excited for the upcoming releases. My style has progressed, yet remained true to my roots.”
