    Biography

    Sister & brother Barbara and Ethan Gruska are Belle Brigade, with Barbara primarily keeping a beat on drums and Ethan picking & strumming guitars. Both are songwriters with influences from Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, Sly Stone, Harry Nilsson and others.

    The Belle Brigade's debut was cited as one of the best albums of 2011 by PASTE. Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times praised their "memorable voices and considerable charisma within songs that gleam with hooks and pour over with earnest emotion". Newsday described the album's "sun-kissed '70s SoCal sound" and SPIN said, "The brother and sister team from LA bring beautiful harmonies to their quirky folk rock." Their 2nd album, "Just Because," was recorded with engineer and co-producer Shawn Everett and mastered by Bob Ludwig.

    Ethan has also recorded as a vocalist and multi instrumentalist for many Los Angeles based artists and Barbara is a sought-after drummer who has played with Fiona Apple, Jenny Lewis, Benji Hughes and many others.

    The Belle Brigade has appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "Conan" and their compelling live performances have led to tours with such artists as Dawes, Blitzen Trapper, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and K.D. Lang. They contributed songs to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 1 soundtrack and their cover of Bob Dylan's "No Time To Think," which appeared on the Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, was voted in the top 10 songs of 2012 by Time Magazine.
