Black Water the single, is a song celebrating the beautiful Dales River, the River Wharfe. Bella took comfort over lockdown knowing that this mighty river connected her to family and friends miles away. It seemed fitting to feature Yorkshire based fiddle player Emily Lawler on this track. Produced by Dan Webster in York, this track is homage to the beautiful Yorkshire landscape & Bella’s connection to the land.
