Andrew Belle is a singer-songwriter from Nashville but originally from Illinois. He is also a member of the national tour Ten Out Of Tenn. In February 2010, Belle's first full-length album, The Ladder, was released. He has had songs featured on popular TV shows as well as being named MTV's "Chicago Break Out Artist" in 2009.
The Ladder is one of those albums that can fare well in the mainstream and still standout on its own. His raspy and warm voice is understated promoting the sincerity of his songs. Belle's simple and honest lyrics are mature and thoughtful. These lyrics combined with the catchy melodies and hooks create songs that are easy to enjoy. The Ladder is a great combination of country influence and infectious pop making this album and Andrew Belle a welcome addition to folk-pop.
