St. Beauty, Anna Wise (of Sonnymoon), The Pheels
9pm / $12adv / All Ages
St. Beauty is the soulful love-child of Alex Belle and Isis V.
Both born and raised in Atlanta— a rarity in the ‘Melting Pot of the South’— Alex and Isis met in College Park while working at a vintage store, and it’s there that they discovered a shared passion for songwriting and performing.
This is where St. Beauty was born, performing together for the first time at a showcase in the store’s basement, uniting Alex’s melodic sensibilities with Isis’ nimble guitar skills.
Layering honey-drenched melodies that linger with truthful lyrics that explore the emotional depths of life and love, their songs deliver a richness and raw expression that is unparalleled.
A sound like no other.
A sound that is St. Beauty.
