Katie Belle and the Belle Rangers


Bio / Links:

Katie Belle Trupiano is a prolific singer/songwriter who grew up in Ottawa, Illinois. At the age of 18 she left home and found her place in Chicago’s vibrant Americana music scene. Her timeless and unique songs have won the hearts of fans of all ages and the admiration of fellow musicians. Her music has been featured in films and television, as well as a children’s book written with friend and author, Julia Durango. Katie met her husband “Duffelbag” Joe Trupiano in Chicago and together they transplanted to Ottawa. They started playing as a duo when he traded his electric guitar for a banjo and some close harmonies. Since then, guitarist Ty Terrones (of Liquid Blues Project and Reclining Buddha) joined the group, adding his masterful guitar playing, a third harmony, and songwriting talents to the mix. Gifted bassist John Nicoli (of Highwater and Liquid Blues Project) forms the southern style rhythmic backbone of the new BelleRangers along with their newest member, drummer Dick Verucci (Buckacre, The Jerks, Missing 51).
