Album Notes
Opie Bellas (her full name is Kalliope) has been singing for radio and TV commercials, Clubs and Jazz Festivals in the United States, Switzerland, Japan and Australia, and soon to be in London. She is a regular performer in New York as well as her home in San Francisco. Rave review of her CD, "Live For Life" in New York City's Cabaret Scenes Magazine (Cabaretscenes.com) as well as a feature article in the August, 2002 issue.
"A sophisticated, honey-warm jazz sound like Bellas - and phrasing that would have made Ella nod in admiration......says Stephanie Salter of the San Francisco Chronicle. "A sexy voice, impeccable taste and rare musical instinct add up to make Opie Bellas a jazz singer to treasure." says Octavio Rocca. And Grammy-nominated author James Gavin says, "Opie Bellas makes such an instant emotional connection with her songs that it's hard not to be moved when she sings. At the same time, her voice has a musicality so innate, that she never has to strain to prove it"

I bought this CD a few years ago after seeing Opie at the New York Cabaret Convention. It continues to be my most played CD - absolutely perfect!

Don Rossman

Wonderful voice, musicianship, arranging, and style.
We are really enjoying this CD. Opie's voice is silky smooth, and the instrumentation of the band is super. Not often we hear strings with cabaret vocalists. We are impressed with her style and this recording especially.


My wife and I love this CD. She has a great voice.
I heard a cut from this CD on local station. Rainbow Connection. Kept missing the artist's name. Finally called the station got the info from the Disc Jockey. Tracked it down on the internet and bought it. Actually now my wife is the one who listens to it the most!!

Rick Cheetham, Cape Town, South Africa

The best voice in the business... the world will discover Opie!
Opie's choice of melodies, her voice and technique, the arrangements and all the musicians are superb. Every song moves me... every song is easy listening... she puts her heart into each and every one. Opie's own composition, MY BROTHER JOHN, in remembrance of her late brother, is very poignant and musical art. This CD is a must for every collection!

Shannon Van Wey

Ms B renders great pop and jazz vocals straightforwardly with her clear and luscious voice and simple phrasings. A joy to hear!

David George

Absolutely beautiful Every word crystal clear, intense in its meaning. Each time you hear a song more meaning comes out. Opie sings from her heart to the hearts of those who live life.

I can\'t wait to get my CD. You are full of life and vitality. Thanks for being contagious.


Excellent vocal quality, very pleasing to the ear!
This CD has very lush orchestration which enhances Opie's wonder voice! The Summer Knows is my favorite song!
