Belles & Whistles are a mother-daughter duo naturally likened to country music’s famed family duo, The Judd’s. Daughter Kelli, 16, leads with her charming yet mature vocals while mama Jaymie sings harmony and plays acoustic guitar. For Jaymie, this is not the first time family and music have mixed—she spent many years on the road with her sisters in Mulberry Lane and experienced success with the Top 30 single “Harmless.”
Their debut single, “Boy Like You,” written by Jaymie and Kelli with Jessi Stout and Corey Madison, speaks to mothers and daughters, as well as fathers and probably sons, a characteristic of Belles & Whistles music. It’s produced by Grammy winner Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Hootie & the Blowfish, Pat Green) with acclaimed musicians like Kenny Aronoff, Tim Pierce and Chris Chaney who have played with a who’s who of musical icons! The single has been played on over 70 radio stations across the country and.the video is currently airing at 1,800 North American Retail Outlets including Denny’s, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Costco and Sam’s Club and is also can be streamed on CMT.com, GACTV.com and YouTube.
