"Acoustic folk duo, Belle Of The Fall, has proven that musical soul mates do in fact exist.” -Vents Magazine
Belle of the Fall is Tracy Walton and Julia Autumn Ford, an indie folk rock pop alternative Americana duo from Northwest CT.
Belle of the Fall met when Tracy produced Julia’s debut solo album in 2014 at his studio; On Deck Sound Studio. They spent the better part of the next year touring together as solo artists. Eventually they began to play on each others sets and sing harmonies together. In July of 2015 after wrestling with the idea of remaining separate solo artists or committing to a duo they merged forces and became Belle of the Fall. In April 2016, Belle of the Fall released their debut album; “Earthbound." 27 states, a tour of Canada and 250 gigs later, they came off of the road to record their followup album, "Rise Up." The album reached #4 on the Roots Music Report, #25 on the Folk DJ Charts and was nominated Best Album in the New England Music Awards. They have just released their 3rd album The Bending of Light on October 15th 2019 and advanced reviews have been stellar.

"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
