When you finally get over the loss of a relationship, especially an abusive and manipulative one like I’ve experienced in my past, sometimes you feel like making a badass comeback. Sometimes you overcompensate for being so battered and bruised in the past, that you come back into life like a black widow, with a mysterious allure that concludes with a line of broken hearts in your rearview mirror. Feeling that way now? This is your theme song.
Both Daphne Willis and Sonia Leigh are newly discovered artists for me, and boy am I happy to have found them! They both have unique and diverse styles that connect them to lovers of rock to roots. “Spider in the Roses” features a mix of formidable and friendly vocals that reflect the idea of a beautifully calculated and cunning hidden danger. Sonia contributes a gritty and bold vocal that is later joined by a sweet sounding Daphne, but keep your guard up because they’ve both got power coming at you… Beware the spider in the roses!

Named after Belinda Carlisle, solo artist and lead singer for The Go-Gos, making music has always been second nature to Belinda M. Growing up in a household that was largely influenced by Filipino culture, it was impossible for her to avoid belting out a few tunes into a karaoke mic at an early age. After her parents discovered she could play piano by ear at age 4, lessons promptly began. She later started writing poetry and playing guitar, which eventually lead to her becoming a singer/songwriter.
For Belinda, writing and listening to music has always been an essential creative outlet and place of solace. She released her debut EP, “I’m Not Broken” in October 2016, and continues to write and release new music. Her lyrics have been recognized by “American Songwriter Magazine” and her music is featured on the award-winning “Women Of Substance Radio and Podcast.” Check out Belinda’s music and learn more at www.belindammusic.com
