Since forming a powerhouse musical duo this summer, Tracy Walton and Julia Autumn Ford have been forging a unique creative path as Belle of the Fall.  The two performers have collaborated many times before and they toured across the Eastern United States together last year. Walton’s On Deck Sound Studio produced Ford’s solo debut album which received widespread acclaim.

It was during Walton’s special Warner Theater performance in July where Ford accompanied Walton for numerous songs including cover tunes and originals like “Many World’s Collide” when it was evident that the tight knit bond the two musicians shared was destined to create a new brand of musical alchemy as a duo. Here’s Many World’s Collide filmed by Luke Haughwout at the concert:

Since forming as an official duo, the two have performed at venues including Fuse Fest, Infinity Hall, Mocha Maya in Massachusetts as they perfected their show. This Friday 9/12 at 7:30pm Belle of the Fall perform their first headlining show in Torrington at the Performance Hub where they will debut new songs. “It’s always exciting to play songs for the first time,” says Walton.” They really aren’t official until you play them for a crowd. Debuting them in Torrington, which is where we were both born makes it more special”

The Performance Hub’s Jay Roberts is looking forward to the concert. “The Hub is proud to offer such quality live entertainment that really, the whole family can enjoy. Belle of the Fall is clever and cute. Just a great time for everyone.

Then on 9/13/2015, Belle of the Fall will perform at Hopkins Vineyard in New Preston. “We will be going deep into the set list for sure,” says Walton. “We also added 3 songs from my last album. Better Man, The Night Slipped Away in Our Hands, and Things Will Never be The Same. We have worked out harmony vocals for them and Julia is now playing on them.
