"I grew up listening to the likes of Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson and Hank Williams so it’s just been a part of the fabric of my life.
I know it’s probably not very trendy growing up in London and listening to Country Music but it’s in my blood, so what can I do?
Rewind was recorded in Nashville in August 2010 for BelleJar Records. It’s Country Pop generally with elements of Bluegrass in there as well.
I’ve written all the material myself, apart from two tracks, a cover of a Johnson Mountain Boys song called My Better Years; and I Wanna Be The Woman.
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time so I’m very happy to have had the opportunity to go back to Music City and have fun there.
We were very fortunate to have had some amazing players on the record.
For example, we had Brent Mason on guitar, Gordon Moat on piano, Larry Franklyn on fiddle and Bryan Sutton on guitar, so I’m very proud to have had some amazing Nashville musicians play on the album.
I’m influenced by many artists and many different genres of music but when it comes to Country Music artists such as Emmy Lou Harris, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash, Guy Clark – amazing singer / songwriters – artists that produce music that speaks to you. That’s always been very meaningful to me.
In the realms of more traditional Country then of course the likes of Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams – all that good stuff! It’s all played a part of shaping my appreciation of Country Music."
Belle Cannon is the most talented and innovative singer songwriter to have exploded out of Galway this century and is about to take the Country Pop and Irish music scenes by storm.
She speaks and sings from the heart and will leave a message imprinted on each beating heart as it leaves the auditorium.
With uplifting and inspiring self-penned songs such as ‘Reel Me In’, ‘Party’ and ‘Working Man’ you will find it impossible to stop your toes from tapping or your fingers from snapping.
Sit back and relax to such classics as ‘ Between Now and Whenever’, ‘Cornerstone’ and the aptly titled ‘Rewind’ and you’ll find that you’ll easily slip into Belle Cannon mode to listen to the full album before reaching for the remote to start the process all over again.
Let your mind rewind - between now and whenever. Just buy the album and we’ll reel YOU in for a great party!!
