Hailing from the booming Merseyside pop scene, singer-songwriter Christy Bellis is no stranger to the stage. Sonically influenced by Eighties pop and the likes of Marina and Self Esteem, Christy provides a fresh, raw commentary on life and the ever-changing political climate we live in, with a magnetic presence to match.
From capturing her thoughts and perceptions of the world in a notepad to creating demo’s in her bedroom; Christy has spent the last two years honing in on her craft, self-producing her debut EP and latest single 'This Girl' at home.
Her debut EP Human Nature, released October 2021, draws on Christy’s own honest experiences as a woman over an intoxicating soundtrack of pop and rock sounds; with her often tongue in cheek tone contrasting a rich and powerful vocal. The EP celebrates the importance of independence and self worth, whilst also unpacking themes and discussions of misogyny, sexual harassment and consent. Lead tracks Bridesmaid and Human Nature were backed by several radio stations including KCC Live and Mersey Radio, with the EP’s title track also being added to the match-day playlist at Anfield. As a Red herself, Christy really welcomed this news.
She's enjoyed a year full of gigs across Liverpool and the local area; including her debut headline show at EBGBS, supporting 80's pop icon Tiffany at Phase One and playing the legendary Jacaranda stage to celebrate its 64th Birthday!
Her most recent track 'This Girl' is Christy’s most personal song to date; with intimate, stripped back verses juxtaposed by uplifting anthemic choruses, the track follows the story of Christy herself fighting with existential anxiety and feelings of lowness shared by an entire generation. For the release Christy teamed up with local talent Matchbox Productions (Crawlers and Lottery Winners), to create a stunning music video shot around the picturesque pine-woodlands and dramatic dunes of Formby.
In 2023, Christy is looking forward to sharing new music with you, and is excited to get back on stage and expand her gig circuit beyond the loving Merseyside scene. (Entry will only permitted to those wearing dancing shoes and those who are up for a good time.)
