about

My request for the band is simple: more, please. More blood, sweat, tears, booze, ultra-lights, magic fairy dust or WHATEVER combination birthed this beauty.
-Lara Crombie, WeHeartMusic.com

It's almost impossible not to be charmed by singer Kay Gillette's warm, intimate vocals.
-Pete Kearns, Snobsmusic.net

In the last year, minimalist folk duo Bella Ruse have hit the ground running, going on three national tours and recording three EPs. They have also fully funded their upcoming full length album via Kickstarter.com with the generous support of their fans all across the country. Their simple but engagingly intimate show has impressed audiences from their hometown of Minneapolis to Seattle to Hollywood, and their songs Push On and Dark Horse have received radio and podcast play worldwide. After only a year together, band members Kay and Joseph are poised to have a big impact on the national scene.

Track Name: Push On
We go forward in the moon
I step sideways into you
Being crumbles like an old brick wall
Falling as we push on through

And I know you won’t let me down
No matter what I do
Yes I know you won’t let me down
So let’s just push on through.

Backward rider in the breeze
He comes for you, he comes for me
My fingers ache like I’m a weathered oak
Full of insects and disease.
Track Name: Dark Horse
I woke up and down the steps
I ran into your arms
your clean white dress and hair a mess
blew brilliant alarms into my ears
and it's something worth seeing
when you turn your eyes to me
tell me, babe, do you believe in everything you see?
Believe in me
That's love

I descended into you
Like ships into the sea
In a maze of altercade
I hoped that you would leave me
hanging on to something worth believing
like comic Aristophanes
when you're down I'll lift you up
dig deep into you; fill it up with me
That's love

You were the dark horse on which I rode
I gave you my sword and shield, myself exposed
To witness an honest man with honest deeds
Falling on his bloody knees
God has chosen all but me and I have chosen you
Yes I have chosen you
That's love
Track Name: Remember Me
Please remember me when I'm gone
Smile when you think about me singing you this song
and I will look above the clouds into
the great mysterious blue
and think about you singing along

Now when I'm looking at you
all I see is a melody arranged in triplet form
sung so soft, and so it seems
even if I lose the moment or the tune
I'll think about you singing to me
Track Name: Hold Me Close
Hold me close and closer still
I’m a fool for loving you, a fool for loving you
But I don’t mind, not one bit
I wouldn’t change you for the world

Oh darling, oh my darling would you stay, stay.
Oh darling, oh my darling would you stay
Stay forever, stay

Love me till the day I die
Then love me still. Love me darlin’, love me
I’ll be true, true as the sun in the sky
I’ll be yours, yours my darling, yours

And heaven couldn’t change my mind
I see it illuminated in your eyes
And when the day is done, to you I run
Oh, you hold me so dear that I got nothin’ to fear
The only man I’ll ever need is you, is you

Oh darling, oh my darling would you stay, stay.
Oh darling, oh my darling would you stay
Stay forever, stay
