Following the exclusive premiere on Whiskey Riff, mother-daughter duo Belles & Whistles announced the release of the music video for their latest single “Fire” on Friday, May 12. Featuring lead singer and daughter Kelli as the protagonist getting “burned” by a troublesome love interest, the music video for “Fire” shows just how intense and explosive a relationship with a “bad boy” can be. Complete with scenes of uncontrollable flames and the Belles & Whistles adorning fire suits in safeguard of their hearts, the video is a powerful display of the play on words “never play with fire.”
While achieving national attention, the Omaha-native duo makes sure to maintain close connections with their local community. In the wake of a tragic police shooting and in honor of International Firefighters’ Day, Belles & Whistles performed “Fire” at the Council Bluffs fire station last Thursday, which helped to raise spirits and thank the first responders for their service. In honor of Mother’s Day, the duo performed “Fire” live on their local CBS affiliate KMTV’s “Morning Blend” and performed live on Sunday, May 14, at 7pm at a special hometown show at the Slowdown in Omaha, Nebraska.
Mother Jaymie and dauther Kelli formed Belles & Whistles in 2013, but have been singing harmonies together in the Jones household since Kelli’s childhood. Currently, having won the title of “Best Country Artists” from the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards for the last three consecutive years, Belles & Whistles are now expanding beyond their hometown and making their names known nationally. The duo have opened for notable country artists, including Old Dominion, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice and Kenny Rogers. Belles & Whistles released their debut six-song EP, Look Up, which features the single “Fire,” in September 2016.
