Bella White

Ahead of a string of August and September tour dates, singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Bella White has released her new single “The Way I Oughta Go.”

Produced by Jonathan Wilson and featuring Buck Meek on guitar, the song exemplifies her ability to put her own stamp on traditional country and bluegrass tones, all the while showcasing her captivating and stunning voice. White shares, “‘The Way I Oughta Go’ is a song about not being sure where you should land, when you should take off, or even knowing how. Writing while staring at the ceiling of my Nashville bedroom amidst the late summer heat, I felt stifled. I wrote a song about love and the lack thereof that I was experiencing — where to find it, or if I even believed that it was out there after one profound disappointment on top of another. It’s a song about self, and moving around until you find your place in the world.”

On Saturday, August 6, Bella will kick off a short U.S. tour.

Park City Song Summit

Park City, UT

September 8-12, 2021

https://parkcitysongsummit.com/

The Song Summit is the brainchild of Ben Anderson, Park City resident and lifetime musician/founding member of the jamband Aiko. He started the Song Summit to celebrate his passion for music and his personal mission to bring clarity and normalcy to the struggles musicians, artists and music lovers alike face around mental health and dependency. Song Summit is proud to partner with three local charities who are in the trenches every day addressing mental health, suicide prevention and addiction recovery: Communities that Care, Jewish Family Service and Summit Clubhouse.

The Song Summit is a decidedly sideways move away from mass music festivals and the dilution of intimate connections where scale numbs engagement between artists and fans. It seeks to create a retreat for artists where they play their songs and create conversations with audiences around both proven and inspired practices for bolstering creativity and success in music and beyond. September 8-12 in Park City, Utah.
