Hello My Name Is…
This is the opening salvo to the artist known as Bella Blair. Put your own spin on it, fill in your blank, and leave much to the imagination because this artist is beyond definition. Creating new waves in a modern-day renaissance, Bella Blair is proof that you really can do it all. A lover of words with no fear of the stage, enter the self-described “bizarre’ world of Bella Blair and get a full-blown experience. Blair is a talented chanteuse and word-smithing songwriter with a vast amount of hidden talents.
Blair was always destined for the limelight and started on the path to celebrity from the time she was four. A graduate of the University of the West Indies, with a degree in Media and Communications, she has become a huge sensation with over three million viewers tuning into her entertaining spirit.. She has created a more expansive and diverse image of Jamaica as well as paving a way for new female talent to reach their dreams.
Blair’s talent was easy to spot. As a Vlogger, during her University days, she began using observational humor that many found easily relatable to make social commentary. A natural born achiever, it’s only fitting that she creates a whole world for herself. After dominating the social media space as a female vlogger, Blair decided that after six years it was time to move on to the next chapter in her book of life. Bella has always had a passion for music as it is her first true love. She was introduced to music at the tender age of three and started learning how to play instruments and use her musical talents shortly after. She continued pursuing music throughout her high school and university years and even represented Jamaica on numerous accounts on an international level.
Bella released her first single “Jamaica” in 2016 which resonated with the Jamaican crowd and people in the diaspora (UK, USA, Canada..). The infamous David Rodigan introduced Bella to his crowd when he had the single “Jamaica” on his playlist for weeks and the track was well loved. The following year when “I Can Do Better” was released, a track from the EP Aura, he invited Bella to do a recording with BBC 1Xtra when he visited Jamaica.
Bella's music has been evolving and the 'Turkle Gang' (her supporters) keeps growing internationally. When asked why does she compare herself to a turtle she says "Im persistent, in my own lane with a hard shell and a soft heart."
Blair is passionate about music and making a change with the music she produces. She takes pride in songwriting and is inspired by life. Many may ask about the genre of music Bella creates and that may be hard to put a label on. She is diverse and has an open appreciation for music, which is reflected in the fusion vibe her music gives off. Bella usually has one question….”What is a genre?”
