Cast of Characters:
Tracy Walton- 2014 and 2015 New England Music Award nominee Best Male Performer. An accomplished bassist and songwriter who has written for Alfred Books and taught at the National Guitar Workshop.
Julia Autumn Ford- CT Music Award Nominee Best New Artist 2014 and Song of the Year 2015. Her debut solo album has gained her well deserved attention as a singer of rare talent. “It’s almost freakish how good she sings. I watched her and it was hard to process that it was actually coming out of her mouth.” Joe Michelini, River City Extension.
Weapons of choice:
Julia – The obvious choice for lead singer in any situation, acoustic guitar, yukitar, occasional melodica.
Tracy- Upright bass, vocals, drums when back lined as he is not a fan of carrying things.
The Rise of Belle of the Fall:
In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford’s debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia’s songs.
Sometimes an idea seems to simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of “All in.” The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide. 2016 finds the duo going strong with their debut album, “Earthbound” set to release on April 5th.
