Bellatrix is a talented trio of women who craft original songs that blend bluesy, soulful melodies, folksy finesse, tight harmonies, and smart lyrics. This new ensemble has been wowing audiences at their shows in Portland and the Mid-coast area.
In August 2016, three songwriters came together through the magic of Craigslist to meet over craft brews. The result was Bellatrix, a new trio of women from different parts of the country that has gone on to create an alchemy of thoughtful lyrics, haunting melodies, and intoxicating harmonies. Named after the female warrior star in the constellation Orion, Bellatrix enchants audiences with their rich songwriting, distinct blend of voices, and unique instrumentation: the band plays a constantly shifting combination of cajon, autoharp, keys, flute, electric guitar, mouth trumpet, and more! These three ladies feel thankful to have made a deep connection with each other through music and harmony of spirit, and greatly enjoy sharing their musical kinship with audiences in Maine and beyond.
Coinstar: Two sisters, Zoé and Ève Gagné, and a friend, Emma Ivy, come together as Coinstar to fuel their undying desire to create music. From Saco to Portland the remaining girls from Yard Sail have fun finding new ways to make a three piece sound full.
The three teenager members of The Ghouls grew up together and have known each other since they were babies. When high school came, they decided to join their musical talents together. Combining the lyrical and guitar skills of Tom Victor, the musicality and drumming of Charlie Rooks, and the melodic cello of Annie Dodson, the trio forms an indie rock band that's not afraid to rock out or to get a little softer. They've been playing shows in Portland and Southern Maine since September 2016, and are looking forward to recording a debut EP soon and spreading their music to a wider audience.
