Bells Larsen (they/them) is a singer-songwriter from Toronto. Larsen grew up with the belief that everyone has a story to tell. Inspired by their hometown’s plethora of arts communities, and especially inspired by their family of artists (their dad is a children’s author), Larsen understood the transformative power of storytelling from a young age. Their faith in narrative translates in their music, which is folk-oriented: with influences like Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens, and Adrianne Lenker, Larsen weaves deeply cathartic lyrics with memorable melodies. In their own storytelling, Larsen seeks to distill the personal within the universal.
