Wild Belle is an American rock band formed by siblings Elliot and Natalie Bergman. Raised in Chicago, the band is influenced by their extensive travels to Jamaica, blending Chicago soul with hints of early rock steady and reggae.
Producing their own albums, directing their videos and film clips, and also being individually sculptors, painters, poets and collage artists, Wild Belle have created a self contained universe of both art and sound.
Wild Belle’s highly-anticipated third LP is set for release in 2018.
