Belles & Whistles, a mother-daughter duo naturally likened to country music’s famed family duo, The Judd’s. Daughter Kelli, 15, leads with her charming yet mature vocals while mama Jaymie sings harmony and plays acoustic guitar. For Jaymie, this is not the first time family and music have mixed—she spent many years on the road with her sisters in Mulberry Lane and experienced success with the single "Harmless," a top 30 hit.

"Boy Like You", written by Jaymie and Kelli with Jessi Stout and Corey Madison, is the perfect debut that speaks to the mothers and daughters, as well as fathers and probably sons, listening to country radio. It's on their self-titled EP, produced by Grammy winner Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Hootie & the Blowfish, Pat Green with acclaimed musicians like Kenny Aronoff, Tim Pierce and Chris Chaney who have all played with a who's who of musical icons!
