Belles Music Logo Baseball Tee! One of the hottest new mother-daughter duos in Country Music!
The duo is Nebraska-grounded, forthright and unpretentious. The music is solidly country, a sweet mix of classic-country values and heartland-rock rebellion. The harmonies are bright, tight and a bit of a birthright.
They are The Belles, Omaha-bred Jaymie and Kelli Jones, a clear-voiced act with an underdog spirit and a crisp tone that make them a shiny newcomer among Nashville’s steep competition. Like another family duo – Chris Stapleton and his wife, Morgane Stapleton – The Belles are intensely involved as a musical pair, sometimes forgetting mid-concert that they’re playing for an audience.
“I actually just love watching Kelli sing,” says Jaymie. “She does all our lead work, and I am to the left of her playing guitar, and I just love to watch her. Sometimes I have to remind myself you need to look at the audience.”
But the makeup of The Belles is more like another family act, The Judds. The Jones girls aren’t sisters – Kelli is Jaymie’s daughter – and Jaymie’s nurturing role allows Kelli to take flight with vocals that are at once youthful and wise.
“I like to think of myself as the setting and her as the diamond,” Jaymie notes. “I’m not trying to be the center of attention at all. I feel like she’s the center, I am just there to support her.”
Working with producer Mickey Jack Cones (Dustin Lynch, Joe Nichols), The Belles have fashioned a series of recordings that showcase their ingratiating sound. The plucky, pop-country workout “Didn’t Break Mine” boasts a genetic harmony akin to The Band Perry. The fiddle grinder “Same Thing” uses a cutting vocal quality to mix jealousy and sympathy in the same emotional space. The fiery “Set In My Ways” most closely resembles The Judds, with Jaymie providing a smoky harmonic balance to Kelli’s snarling lead vocal, setting the duo up as small-town females with big-time dreams. A bittersweet ballad, “The Leavin’,” shows the depth of Kelli’s fiercely vulnerable delivery matched with Jaymie’s uncanny harmonic sense.
