LAILA BELLE PLAYS ALL ORIGINAL SWEET AND CLASSIC COUNTRY SONGS
THAT ROCK AS MUCH AS THEY ROLL…

Amy Puryear leads the way with her vocals and acoustic guitar, alongside Ward Puryear on electric guitar laying down the grooves as well as the sweetest of solos.  Jason Shegogue joins in with electric guitar and lap steel, bringing the rockin’ to the rollin’, and playing his heart out on every song.  Scott Nelson holds down the bass, cool and steady, deep and groovin’.  And last but certainly not least, Chris Ploss rocks it on the drums and adds the finishing touches with harmony vocals.

We have been rehearsing a lot, playing out a lot, and have high hopes to record our 2nd record in the near future.  The songs are here, and so are we.  Now it’s just a matter of pulling all the pieces together and getting into the studio once again.  We will keep you posted as this becomes a reality…
