It always starts with a song.
Capim. A song by the The Manhattan Transfer. Sung completely in Portuguese. She must have been 3.
Since Capim, there have been thousands of songs, late night needles hitting vinyl, and heavy bass beating car speakers. Somewhere along the way, she learned she had an instrument that she carried everywhere she went. She had a voice. So she started to use it. Writing sad songs in the middle of the night, and stealing moments at her auntie’s baby grand piano. It was all done in her lonesome. Her little secret.
But like all secrets, they become very hard to keep. So hard, that you may just burst. BURST.
And that is exactly what she did.

The Loops For Lovers Collective
The Loops for Lovers Collective (Alana Belle -singer/songwriter & KMTK -producer/creative director) have known one another since before they were born. Their mothers have been best friends since the 9th grade, so as the saying goes, the rest was history.
“This is beat-head soul that blends the distinct comforts of late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, a crucial, classic combo in black music if there ever was… Find this music and slap it back to front like five times before you notice, and you won't be sad you did.”
Tunes featuring Alana Belle
"Alana's ethereal voice floats like soft magic dust from your favorite old 45. She literally captures your heart and makes you fall in love with her....whatever she is saying."
