Aurora Bella is a singer/songwriter currently based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. She performs solo as a singer-songwriter on piano, acoustic and electric guitar, and ukulele. Aurora is a charismatic performer who comes naturally to the stage. Her songs incorporate her love of storytelling, mythology, folktales, and literature with personal stories, sly humour and thoughtful reflections on deeper themes. Her dynamic groove, tasty hooks and distinct vocal style create songs that are complex, catchy, lovely and intense. Her original tunes come from an indie/folk/rock foundation that can be compared to artists like Hozier, Feist, and Regina Spektor. “I write music because I feel the emotions I’m writing about,” Aurora Bella said in a recent interview. “I try to really channel those emotions or those stories into my songs, and I think you can feel the honesty” (Star Phoenix, Oct 2020).

“The young indie singer-songwriter based in Saskatoon . . . has carved out a fun niche for herself. The slick vocals and smooth acoustic accompaniment pair perfectly with (her) raw lyrics.” Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Oct 16, 2020

“(Aurora) Bella’s solo style is a dreamy alt-rock kind of sound, heavy on strings and filled to the brim with creativity. Her music is plaintive and powerful, and she’s a performer to keep an eye on as her career keeps progressing. Isolation can’t stop creativity, and Bella is a great young talent.” Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Apr 23, 2020.
