Former Belle
Former Belle
Born and raised in Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs, Bruno Catrambone spent years working and writing for a project that didn't exist yet. These years of makeshift, at-home recordings turned into what Bruno later named, Former Belle.

Seeking refuge in his mother's suburban basement, Bruno got together with a few friends to sculpt what was to be Former Belle's debut release, the Sounds From the Ground EP. Sounds From the Ground was recorded in three different parts starting in Telford, PA with Producer Ed Myers, then to Zionsville, PA with Scott Minner (iHava Studios) and finishing in Doylestown, PA with Chris Radwanski (Drink Up Buttercup, Peasant, White Birds, Night Panther).

Upon its release, Sounds From the Ground took Former Belle, both full band and Bruno Joseph solo, along the east coast and on an extensive, month-long European tour. Former Belle spent their 2011-2012 months promoting and playing shows alongside the likes of Owen, Fences, Colour Revolt, River City Extension, Allison Weiss, Illinois, Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes and more.

Upon returning home from Europe, Bruno settled back down in Philadelphia with a handful of new songs and a concept for the next record. During the fall and early winter months of 2012, Bruno headed back into the studio with good friend, Chris Radwanski to track Former Belle's debut full length, 'Cathedral', due out in early February 2013.

Hemming
Hemming
HEMMING (Candice Martello) is an acoustic singer-songwriter hailing from Philadelphia, PA. Her high-voltage vocals and folk-influenced songs have stood out from the crowd as a performer in the thriving Philadelphia music scene, having played the stage at well-known venues throughout the city. With a family deep rooted in music, It’s no wonder she has befriended every instrument she meets. Playing guitar at just 9 years old, and writing her first song at 13, her fascination with music took off very young.

After graduating from Drexel University, Hemming continued developing her sound and influence as a solo performer to the backdrop of the artist community in West Philadelphia, and as a member of Omar, the two-piece punk band she formed with close friend Nick Fanelli. While a part of Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, she was praised for her talent as a solo artist, and split from Omar to further develop her own sound.

With musical influences including Cat Power, Metric, M. Ward, and Alanis Morisette; she is inspired by the power of raw emotion, experience, and simplicity. Hemming's rhythmic, folksy, room-splitting croon leaves produces a haunting experience for her audience. And with the honesty of her music, as she bares down to a song’s meat and bones, it is undeniably clear that tugging her audience’s heart strings is what she aims for.
