A physician by day and soul and blues singer by night, Bellamy took up singing as a hobby 12 years ago, paying dues in cover bands, musical theater (her role in an R&B version of “Porgy & Bess” impressed the New York Times), and with a one- woman show where she told stories of her life in between tunes.
Bellamy’s path then led to Austin, Texas where she has worked with many incredible songwriters including Ruth Carter (composer for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Palmer, and John Mayall), bass playing legend Jimi Calhoun (player with Dr. John, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Wilson Pickett, Sly Stone) and Jake Langley (Roberta Flack, Willie Nelson, k.d. lang).
Bellamy utilized the lessons she learned from her songwriting mentors for her EP, Undone, released on May 5, 2017, writing songs about life she had seen and experienced through others. Undone is the story behind the story and how so many times we don’t see or have any idea what people are dealing with but that even in the midst of struggle, there is hope.
Her EP Drive, released in 2018 features her own take on the 1980’s song of the same name, originally performed by The Cars.
On November 19, 2018, Bellamy released her full length album, Soul for the Season, a Christmas album featuring Christmas classics with a soulful spin.
Bellamy has been a SoulTracks award nominee, had her album, In My Lane, released in Japan by Sweet Soul Records and has traveled the United States sharing her music. The Austin Chronicle wrote,” Bellamy’s calling card is her voice, a smoky, soulful instrument of joy…”
