Boise’s Americana Sweethearts! Indie Alt Country Darlings!

  • For A Fool
  • Mess You Up
  • a.k.a. Belle

    Nicknamed ’Americana Sweethearts’ by weekly local arts & culture rag, The Boise Weekly, a.k.a. Belle are also commonly referred to as Boise’s ”Indie – Alt – Country Darlings” — certainly there is an edge to their Americana – roots rock n roll, as listening to their debut album, ”Disappearing Night” reveals.

    The album came out in late December 2011, spent several weeks in the Top 20 Best Sellers list at The Record Exchange and, in fact, ”Disappearing NIght” made it into the Ten Top Selling Local Albums of 2012!

    The track ”Austin Calling” continues to get airplay on the Treasure Valley’s largest commercial radio station, The River 94.9fm. a.k.a. Belle are highly championed by their morning host, Tim Johnstone, as well as being favorites of Carl Scheider, DJ at (NPR affiliated) KBSU. ”Living Room Radio,” a Friday afternoon show on 89.9fm Radio Boise, listed ’Disappearing Night’ as one of their top albums of the year.

    a.k.a. Belle formed in 2008, after Catherine Crooks Merrick (vocals, guitars, banjo) returned home to Boise after several years of living and performing under the moniker Belle
    of Les Bois in Manchester, England. She recruited long time accomplice Sam Merrick to play guitar (ex-Hillfolk Noir, The Nymphs, The Leaving Trains). (Yes, they are married.)

    No strangers to the music business, each has worked with or supported some famous names (Curtis Stigers; Bill Kirchen; Doug Martsch from Built to Spill; John Doe & Exene Cervenka from LA band X; Iggy Pop; Elizabeth Cook; Holly Golightly, Lydia Loveless…just to name a few)

    Current live shows feature Louis McFarland on percussion and Chris Galli on stand up bass; and Kayleigh Jack on violin, vocals and guitar.

    Sam and Catherine recently appeared on Boise Song Talk, a local television series showcasing local songwriters who discuss their craft/ songwriting with host James Coberly Smith. http://boisesongtalk.com/

    Christmas 2010’s Moxie Java local artist/band compilation includes a.k.a. Belle’s holiday hit, “I’m Giving Mice Elf to You” which has been on permanent rotation on The River’s Morning Show every Christmas since its release.

    ”For a Fool,” was the inspiration for a stop motion painting/animation video by Boise artist, Shasta Nash. Shasta used the acoustic version of the song (written & recorded in England), which was shown at the 2011 ”208 Music Video Show” and took 1st prize.

    The band also took part in a pilot series hosted by John Doe called ”American Music.” a.k.a. Belle served as his backing band (with Catherine duetting) on several songs. http://www.wideeye.tv/original_programming.html

    Work on their 2nd album (working title ’The Devil Loves You’), has begun at AudioLab Recording Studios, and the band anticipate its release sometime this spring. The direction is slightly darker, including themes of time travel and urban myths about a serial killer who lives in Boise’s foothills.

    Ana Lete

    In January, 2015, Christi Green, Ana Lete’s classical guitar
    instructor, mentor, and friend of 2.5 years passed away from
    complications following an ankle surgery after a skiing accident. With
    this unexpected wave of grief, Lete began doing something she hadn’t
    done in over two years—she began writing songs again. At first, the
    songs that she wrote were a way for her to heal and deal with her
    grief, but as the year continued, she found the act of songwriting was
    useful in reflecting and capturing other aspects of her life as well.

    From January to May 2015, the 21 year old worked on a set of songs in
    her spare time after her classes and jazz ensembles at the College of
    Idaho. In June 2015, she recorded demos of these songs and sent them
    to her roommate—bassist, Ashton Jenicek—who suggested that they start
    playing them in their basement and begin gigging locally.

    Ana Lete began her musical journey in her hometown of Nampa, ID. She
    began taking guitar lessons from Wayne White in 8th grade, and through
    White’s influence, fell in love with guitar and the music of the
    Beatles. Lete took lessons from White until she enrolled at The
    College of Idaho as a Music Theory & Composition major and began
    studying classical guitar with Christi Green. Throughout high school
    and college, Lete developed a love of both contemporary indie music
    and jazz. It was through being involved in her Vocal Jazz group at C
    of I (ran by Dr. Marianne Saunders) that Lete found her voice as a
    vocalist. Some of Lete’s favorite artists and musical influences
    include the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bon Iver, the Fleet Foxes, Feist,
    Tune-Yards, Wye Oak, and Billie Holiday.

    From October 2015 to May 2016, Ana Lete, Ashton Jenicek, and
    percussionist, Gavin Peterson, recorded Psychic Translation with
    recording engineer, Rodrigo Coronel, in the College’s recording
    studio. After graduating with a bachelor’s in Music Theory &
    Composition, Lete spends her days drinking dry cappuccinos, playing
    shows both solo and with a variety of musicians, teaching private
    guitar lessons, songwriting, booking tours, and more.

    Bare Bones

    The Bare Bones formed in July 2011. It started as a solo project for the work/writings of Chris Brock (Vocalist/Guitarist). He posted a video on facebook of him performing at the songwriters showcase at St. Chapels winery when Aaron Bossart (Percussion), who recognized him from high school, approached him and asked to jam together.

    The two took off when they started collaborating and practicing in Aaron’s basement. Using makeshift recording equipment and cheap gear bought with a good chunk of their life savings they mastered the songs Chris had written in a matter of weeks as a newly formed two piece band. The Bare Bones had their first official gig at the Flying M Coffee Garage on Friday, August 19, 2011, and have been working hard as young, gigging musicians ever since.
    Currently, The Bare Bones are composed of Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist: Chris Brock and Percussionist: Aaron Bossart. The Bare Bones bring together a fusion of genres like indie/blues/soul and alt. rock, and are influenced by a variety of groups like The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys, The Frames, Modest Mouse, Wilco, The Pixies, and countless, classic R&B soul artists like Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin. Aaron, having a near virtuoso talent as a drummer from his ”metal” days, brings a variety of beats to the table, providing a strong foundation for Chris, with his talents as a songwriter and a wannabe bluesman to really test the limits of what a two piece can do musically.

    Together The Bare Bones have brought a positive message to the Boise music scene, bringing waves of good vibes whenever they play live. They strive to always play a good show, make friends with whomever they meet and to always take responsibility for representing young musicians in a positive light.
