About Bella Soul
With bella soul launched in the spring of 2009, the Findlay's have gone on to far surpass their original goal. Using a small core of regulars and dear friends, such as keyboardist David Larson, a long-time member of their musical family and master of keyboard instruments, as well as rising saxophone star Kyle Gowin, and excellent drummer Reggie Upshur, the core bella soul duo has met no gig, truly no challenge that has stopped them. As a duo, they've opened for artists such as Robert Cray and Eddie Money. With full bands they've opened for Renee Austin, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, as well as the aforementioned Cray. Yet, as successful as they have been, they have remained true to a core of blues, rock and soul music for inspiration and direction. But both realize that the true root of the music they love most is the blues, and as such, have maintained an active presence in their blues communities, as well as reaching out into the global experience of the blues across cultures, races, nationalities, and other divides.
