Music for driving down long country roads, sipping whisky, reflecting, and celebrating love, life, and colorful characters. The music of Belldiver is eclectic, authentic, and diverse, spanning thoughtful indie-folk to guitar-laden rock and roll with many detours along the way. Belldiver crafts songs that ring both original and tangible.
At its core, Belldiver’s identity is in the clever and insightful lyrics penned by frontman Jason Shepherd. Jason crafts compelling stories of every mood and character, full of wordplay and often delivered with a wink and a nod. His stories are brought to life by the collaborative efforts of the six-member band through rich textures of guitars, keys, saxophone, melodica, and electric and upright bass. Whatever it takes to tell the tale.
Live performance showcases the band at its best. Belldiver’s diverse catalog and experience lend to a chameleon-like ability to accommodate any atmosphere, from large clubs to hole-in-the-wall red dirt venues, artist-focused listening rooms, and private-party acoustic sets. The depth of Jason’s introspective storytelling and comic relief stands out in intimate settings, while the full band experience resonates with a power and intensity of its own.
