“What may be the most innovative modern interpretation of vintage roots music.”—No Depression

“Bill and the Belles is committed to helping early county music remain appreciated—not just replicated.”—Rolling Stone

They’re a joy to watch live, and we bet you can’t make it through their set without smiling.”—The Bluegrass Situation

“Bill and the Belles’ brand of Americana oftentimes feels like it’s turning back the hands of time with their charming vintage sound.”—Pop Matters

“Bill and the Belles blend a traditional stringband sound with ‘60s pop …”—Wide Open Country

“It’s Americana as dark comedy.”—Tinnitist

Happy Again isn’t exactly happy. But the delightfully deadpan new album from roots mainstays Bill and the Belles is full of life, humor and tongue-in-cheek explorations of love and loss. Out May 21, 2021 on Ditty Boom Records (distribution and promotion by Free Dirt Service Co.), Happy Again marks a new chapter for the group by featuring eleven all-original songs penned by founding member Kris Truelsen. . . . [T]he group has a knack for saying sad things with a bit of an ironic smirk, pairing painful topics with a sense of release and relief. Anyone who’s been to one of their shows can attest that you leave feeling lighter and refreshed. . . . This raw songcraft, along with the deft production touch of Teddy Thompson, son of Linda and Richard Thompson, who encouraged using only first or second takes, gives Happy Again an emotional punch that deepens with each listen.
