Love and Chaos w/ AJ Vallejo and Kendall Beard
LOVELY CHAOTIC SUPERNOVA
Nestled somewhere between the beauty of love and the turmoil of chaos comes the unique sound from Texas artists and long-time co-collaborators, AJ Vallejo & Kendall Beard.
Both artists on their own, have quite an impressive resume of experience in the music world. AJ fronting his heavy-touring Sony recording act Austin rock band, Vallejo for over a decade touring with the likes of everyone from The Black Crowes, Matchbox 20, Stone Temple Pilots & Blues Traveler, and Kendall enjoying national success as a finalist on Season 8 of Fox's American Idol as well as her own solo career.
AJ , being voted 3-time Producer of the Year at the Austin Music Awards, teamed up with Kendall after her Idol stint recording her 2 full-length albums. The studio relationship during that period proved to be so fruitful that the powerful songwriting duo came together as a duo project to create something new with an undeniable chemistry that carries over into each and every song.
On their debut EP Love & Chaos, AJ & Kendall bring different styles to the table and somehow manage to consistently find middle ground as they create fresh & exciting music together. Their first single/video Ready For War mixes a funky backbeat groove w/ big harmonies, while their second single Wildflower (co-written w/ TX friend, Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly) swings Americana & roots-rock together effortlessly without sounding contrived. Chase those songs down with the destructo-comical Drive Me To Drink and you have one mean mixed buzz of guilty musical pleasures that clearly show the duo's vast list of collective influences. Their upcoming full-length debut album Bless Your Idiot Heart, (tentative release date 02/14/19) chocked full of radio-ready gems like the title track & Back To Good show strong promise already enjoying heavy radio play in their Texas home state. AustinLive calls the band "Texas' musical Bonnie & Clyde, burning up stages one show at a time with their fiery, fun rollercoaster ride of songs about love, pain, sacrcasm & hope...this band has to be seen live to #embracethechaos..."

If music is food for the soul, then The BellRays are Thanksgiving and they know how to cook. The BellRays strip down to the meat of what music means to them.
