Belle Plaine was raised on a farm near the village of Fosston, Saskatchewan. She studied classical voice for 12 years, followed by jazz at Grant MacEwan University. After several waitressing jobs, a misguided attempt to become a scientist, and some globetrotting to Australia, she came back to Saskatchewan to start a career in music. Belle Plaine's first full-length album 'Notes from a Waitress' unites jazz, pop and country into Belle's own brand of jazz fusion. The album was co-written with long-time collaborator, Jeremy Sauer, and shifts in mood from upbeat swing, to shimmering waltzes, to lush ballads. After two years of touring to support 'Notes', Belle is currently writing and recording the follow-up album 'Last Mountain Lake' to be released in 2015.
