the bellow & the whale
The bellow & the whale is the artistic collaboration of musicians/visual artists Bianca Goyette and Julia Lee Norris (us). We create to bring people together; to facilitate positive and constructive conversations between different/opposing viewpoints. Together we develop overlapping thematic elements in the form of imagery and sound to erode the distance between the way we choose to see the world versus what is actually there. Our sound, indie-pop in flavor, draws on various genres and styles but is rooted in the traditions of soul and folk music. We experiment with harmony and vocal timbre, pulling in a range of emotion, from joyful and powerful to mournful and haunting.
