Austin-based folk-pop virtuosos The Belle Sounds are thrilled to announce the forthcoming release of their album “The Sea Within” on Friday, July 20. Their official Houston album release party will take place at The Mucky Duck on Tuesday, July 24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available here: http://www.mcgonigels.com/Shows. For more information on the group, please see www.thebellesounds.com. Led by frontwoman Noëlle Hampton and electric guitarist André Moran, The Belle Sounds create lush soundscapes intertwined with beautiful harmonies and emotive lyricism. Their sound is reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac, Neko Case, Aimee Mann, The Shins and Jenny Lewis, yet exudes its own power and depth through Noëlle’s heart-wrenching vocals and her and André’s guitar interplay. Other artists featured on the album include band member Emily Shirley on keys, synths and vocals, studio drummer Evan Hutchings , local Austin bassist John Michael (Night Glitter, Charlie Sexton), Kris Nelson on bass and backing vocals on several tracks along with Brian Standefer (Alejandro Escovedo) on cello. Noëlle and André enlisted the help of producer/engineer/keyboard player David Boyle (Patty Griffin, Fiona Apple, Robert Plant, Eddie Vedder, Okkervil River, Shinyribs) for the new project and recorded it at Church House Studio in Austin.
