“To say that Belle of the Fall lead singer, Julia Autumn Ford, possesses the voice of an angel is beyond obvious. Soft, tender and raw all at once; Julia’s vocal delivery is light as a feather yet powerful enough to knock down an entire city block with one turn of a phrase. Her partner in crime, bassist Tracy Walton, rounds out Belle of the Fall’s folky yet modern sound. You will want to take note of this performance as it’s one of those ‘I saw them when they were still playing bars’ moments.” Block Island Music Fest
“Julia’s voice is like a fishbowl filled with cotton candy and fairies.” Lexi Weege
Belle of the Fall is Tracy Walton and Julia Autumn Ford.
In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford’s debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia’s songs.
Sometimes an idea seems too simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of “All in.” The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide.
