Performance Workshop Details

“Bella Cat is the Princess of Soul” - Clyde Stubblefield

Are you ready to take the next step to become the best artist you could be today?

Bella is not only known for her powerhouse vocals, it’s her captivating stage presence that draws you in! When Bella lived in Ottawa she taught music and performance classes at The Bluesfest School of music and art, Rob’s Music, Sing House Studios, and, Sunnyside music school. With a performance degree from Selkirk College in British Columbia Bella is back and here to bring you the best workshop for stage presence and voice.  

 

Ottawa is where Bella’s career started but not where it ended, now residing in British Columbia after 7 cross-Canada tours Bella is known Canada-wide. She is in town for one month this January on her 8th tour while releasing her 3rd album. You might know her from her outstanding performances at Ottawa Bluesfest or maybe from Canada’s version of The Voice based out of Montreal “La Voix”. She has released two full albums, one out of Nashville in 2014 and the other out of Chicago in 2019. Inspired by La Voix she hosted her own live show called “Ottawa Performance Competition”, which then turned into a production company called Bella Cat Soul Productions. At first, this was a non-profit organization to help amateur artists of all kinds grow, find their voice, and, place them on the stage where they belong but now this company has grown into something much bigger. 

Bella isn’t just a recording artist but also a composer, producer, songwriter, music video director, performance coach, photographer, and overall creator. Bella has no label she does not fit into one box, her genres bounce from RnB, Jazz, funk, soul, country.. etc. she can do it all. We hope you take interest in this workshop hosted by Bella Cat it will surely not be disappointing and whoever is involved will definitely benefit even if they are new to singing and or performing live.
