A full year before Andrew Belle had released an album, his gift in songwriting was being recognized with the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting award in 2009. Coupled with his intent to fill his debut record, The Ladder (2010), with well-done, melodic pop music made for a smash hit among fans. His follow up and latest album, Black Bear (2013) went in a dreamier more electronic direction with Belle listing the likes of Beach House and M83 as inspiration for the songs.
