The Grant MacEwan alumna jazz singer and cowboy songwriter don't only complement each other vocally, but their onstage chemistry is infectious. They have individually released numerous studio albums, toured nationally and developed brands recognized industry wide, while always staying true to their Saskatchewan roots. Belle and Blake released their Limited Edition, double-single last September. The production of their 70’s inspired 7” vinyl was overseen by Jason Plumb and recorded at CBC Studio One in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Belle Plaine grew up in the farming community of Fosston, Saskatchewan, her distinctive sound draws from her musical background: classical vocal training, jazz/contemporary music study and a history of live performance reaching back to her country upbringing. Her singular and textured voice lends itself to various styles of music, from outlaw country to 1940's swing. Belle Plaine was named Emerging Artist at the 2014 Regina Mayor's Arts and Business Awards.

Raised in the Moose Mountains, deep in Saskatchewan's southeast corner, Berglund confidently launched his career as a teenager by drawing on the defining experiences of his youth: classical piano training, a fervent love of the Seattle grunge rock movement and the responsibility of tending 200 horses on his family ranch. Berglund was named Roots Artist of the Year at the 2017 Saskatchewan Country Music Awards.

Belle and Blake represented Saskatchewan alongside Rah Rah and The Sheepdogs at the PEI 2014 Celebraton Zone festval, completed a joint tour of the Canadian East Coast and wrapped up the endeavour on VIA Rail's “Artsts On Board” series. 2015 saw them travel to Australia, and individually complete tours across Canada. In January 2016 Blake and Belle opened for the legendary Dwight Yoakam and are now splitting time between Regina, SK and Nashville, TN.
