(United States)

Rarely does modern music earn the badge
timeless, but BEL cuts through the noise. Hailing from the small
town of Clovis, California, Isabel Whelan crafts nostalgic songs with honesty and attention to detail,
occupying the intersection of indie, pop, and folk, while taking cues from the likes of Stevie Nicks, Joni
Mitchell, and Mazzy Star.
In 2022, BEL released four singles (including collaborations with girlhouse and Boyish), which culminated
in the release of her sophomore EP,
Jet Lag. Throughout the rollout, she steadily built a core fanbase on
socials while receiving support from Sirius XM (300+ organic plays), Pandora (2 playlist covers), Spotify,
Apple, and several publications. BEL headlined the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn and supported Isaac
Dunbar, Beach Weather, and Kristiane, positioning herself on the precipice of the indie zeitgeist.
