The complexity of wisdom and the passion for continuing to grow through fresh experiences shine through the highly personal vocal and instrumental artistry of country singer/songwriter duo Belles and Whistles. Naturally likened to The Judds, this mother/daughter duo features Jaymie Jones on acoustic guitar and singing harmony, while young Kelli, 16, leads with her charming yet mature vocals. Through textured harmonies, Belles and Whistles spins lush tales of the girls and women next door, paying homage to musical storytelling foremothers such as Dolly Parton and Carol King, with topical relevance in lyric and style of today’s country music.

“The natural harmonies between mother and daughter give Belles & Whistles a unique, infectious sound that really stands out in the current country landscape.”

Erik Johnson, Program Director, KXKT

A striking balance is carried into the band’s multigenerational interplay. They share the exquisite insights Jaymie has collected from nearly two decades in the music business, much of which was also with family, including sister-comprised band Mulberry Lane, whose single “Harmless” made it to the Top 30. And they express Kelli’s vibrant enthusiasm for the twists and turns of her journey that have yet to come. Their songs articulate their collective belief that the most admirable heroes and heroines are equally shaped by the joyfulness and the ache of real life, anchored in love.

Their debut single, “Boy Like You” speaks to mothers and daughters, as well as fathers and probably sons, a characteristic of Belles and Whistles music. Written by Jaymie and Kelli with Jessi Stout and Corey Madison, the single is produced by Grammy-winner Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Hootie & the Blowfish, Pat Green). The song is receiving solid airplay on country radio on 70 stations across the country. The video is airing at 1,800 North American retail outlets and is streamed on CMT.com, GACTV.com, and YouTube.com.

“Thank you for the great job Belles and Whistles did at the 2013 Country Stampede. I greatly appreciate the professionalism and great music you brought to our main stage. You were great to work with and the fans loved you. Best wishes for continued success!”
