You know that feeling you get when you’re secretly wrapping christmas gifts in your room – and you’re picturing the face of the receiver, hoping they’ll love it? (and if you’re like me, just proud you didn’t let the cat out of the bag already because you were so excited about it!)
That’s how i’ve felt for quite a while now as i’ve been working with two of my best friends, both musically and personally, to create Belle Starr.
Belle Starr is Stephanie Cadman, Kendel Carson and me, Miranda Mulholland. we have planned, conspired and experimented and been given the opportunity to work with some of this country’s greatest musical minds and now we are so thrilled to be able to show you what we’ve been doing!
So, like the nervous, excited, proud gift giver, i am so delighted to announce that tonight will mark the onscreen debut performance of Belle Starr.
We were lucky enough to perform as guests on Jason McCoy’s Christmas at the Grand with other incredible artists like Colin James and the PRO trio of Pavlo, Rik Emmett and Oscar Lopez (Steph takes a wicked tap break in one of their tunes!) and also back up Jason in some festive numbers.
It will air tonight and throughout the holidays
on CMT Canada. (all times Eastern)
December 11th 7pm and 11pm
December 12th 2pm
December 15th 11pm
December 20th 7pm and 11pm
December 24th 6pm
We have some other things in the works as well – our first video, filmed in New York City by the inimitable Jeth Weinrich will air very soon on CMT.
Our website is nearly ready and we will have some tracks available for download there. In the meantime, you can find the feature song we perform, ‘December’ as well as all the others from Jason McCoy’s Christmas at the Grand on ITUNES. Incredibly giant thanks to our champion, Joel Stewart and to CMT Canada.
Happy holidays! wishing you all the best in 2011… i have a really good feeling about next year…
