Ep 719: Jennie Matthias of The Belle Stars
Written by admin on May 21, 2022
Jennie Matthias didn’t aspire to be a singer; she didn’t know she had the voice for the job. It was an accidental “audition” for a bunch of ex-Bodysnatchers looking to form a new band which led to Jennie becoming the lead singer of a band which would later be known as The Belle Stars. Jennie Mathias is our guest on this episode of Revenge of the 80s Radio
During our conversation, Jennie tells her story about how she became the frontwoman for the Belle Stars, how the band’s name (which they did not have at their first performance) came about, her career, post-Belle Stars collaborations, solo recordings, picking herself up from rock bottom and inspiring others to do the same through her anti-drugs work, many charity efforts and her book: Surviving the Storm, In addition, we air a new track finished a short time ago.
We also play music from X. Midnight Oil, The Style Council and more classic alternative artists
