Katie Belle and The Belle Rangers

Born and raised in Ottawa, Illinois, Katie Belle grew up on the junction of the Fox and Illinois Rivers listening to equal parts classic country music and 80’s punk rock. At eighteen she moved to Chicago and began writing music that spanned the divide between these two genres. From the frenetic folk of Ticklepenny to the cowpunk drive of The Belle Rangers, she left her mark on the Chicago music scene with her trademark earthy vocals and narrative songwriting style.
