Introducing Southern Belle

Give me a name like Southern Belle, and I'll give you a group of nearing their prime women from down south who sound something like a cross between The Dixie Chicks and The Donnas.

But no, that's not this Southern Belle. This Southern Belle is the project of Isom Innis, a Boston native who's out to make a name for himself by "cherry-picking members from his favorite Boston bands. It is true he's originally from the south (Nashville) and he named his new project for his sister Isabella.

Over the last year, he's performed with Neon Indian, The Antlers, Editors and Designer Drugs working on his debut EP, Walk Out.

“I used to have this Johnny Greenwood quote taped up on my wall in high school that said: ‘We don’t set out to break barriers, we just copy our favorite records.’ - Innis
