Fast Track to Stardom

Who: Bella
Where: Toronto District Workers Club
When: Saturday May 29, 2004

WHEN country starlets KATE BALLANTYNE, LYN BOWTELL and KAREN O'SHEA teamed up to form a musical trio late last year, they had no idea how far the venture would take them.

Less than six months after the formation of BELLA (formerly ANAM CARA ), the girls picked up the coveted GOLDEN GUITAR AWARD for Best Vocal Group in January this year.

Proving their potential, Bella picked up the award simply on the strength of their debut EP which features the single, Tumbling Down .

``I went into a little bit of shock when they announced our name,'' Ballantyne said.

``We were ecstatic, with three girls you can imagine, we were over the moon, crying.

``When we got up on the stand, we were all just speechless. I don't know how they expected three girls to make a short speech!'' Bella has since signed a deal with OCEAN ROAD MUSIC and are focusing on the next step in their short career an album which is due for release in August 2004.

Catch Bella live at TORONTO WORKERS CLUB on Saturday, May 29, from 8pm with support from MATT HANLEY. Tickets cost $12 per person and bookings can be made at the club. For more information, call the club on 49592011.
