Blue Mountain Belle is an indie folk band from Detroit, Michigan produced by John Katona of Dog & Panther. The band was formed by guitarist Nick Bourgeau and singer/songwriter Stephanie Hamood upon meeting during their coincidental return to Michigan - on boxcars, naturally - after pursuing separate projects in other states. With an affinity for traditional honky tonk music and Bourgeau's extensive background in jazz and experimental noise music, the band boasts an eccentric approach to Americana. The band began playing all over the metro Detroit area after Hamood finished touring with the legendary Anita Baker, playing dates as Baker's opening act. When they aren't trying to outdraw Clint Eastwood in front of the TV, and with their days of barroom brawls and Boston subway busking behind them, they released their debut EP in the spring of 2014 and are coming soon to a venue near you...


Motor City Muckraker, August 2014 :

"Their debut EP is only a small amount of the mass potential they have. Most EP’s are meant to be a small taste of a band, but this one has just started to tap into the classic and unique sound that they displayed live. It will be intriguing and exciting to see what they do next."

Blue Mtn Belle EP


MLive Entertainment, April 2014 :

Singer/songwriter Stephanie Hamood (Blue Mtn Belle) has an intoxicatingly gorgeous voice, which is at once sweet and soulful. Tender and smart lyrics combined with a keen sense of melody, timing, and phrasing make this young gal’s tunes irresistable. Ultimately, her songwriting style is a delightful marriage of modern folk and 60’s soul. Rather than being influenced by today’s overproduced, Top 40 gloss, it’s evident that Ms. Hamood subscribes to the warm, analog sounds of yesteryear, such as: Etta James, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and the Shirelles
