Bellavida was created when five close friends came to the inevitable conclusion of forming a band during the final year of high school; each member bringing years of unique musical experience to the table. Bellavida’s music resembles indie-rock with a pop influence given life through uplifting and acoustic driven melodies. The roots of Bellavida’s sound tap into many genres including… jazz, hard rock, singer-songwriter, indie, and alternative music such as Dave Matthews Band, Radiohead, Muse, Amy Winehouse, Grouplove, Cage The Elephant, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their first original and most widely known song, “Look At How She Lays,” was well received by the local community and fueled the creation of the EP, “Letters to Rose.” The debut EP was recorded and produced by the masterful Kenny McWilliams at Archer Avenue Studio and truly highlights the mature, skillful, and one-of-kind sound Bellavida has become known for. Since the release of “Letters to Rose,” the band has been hard at work performing live shows in the Columbia area as well as devoting time to composing more original tracks. The live show is a stirring performance incorporating original music accompanied by crowd pleasing covers of well-known songs with that unique Bellavida flavor.
