About Me

Born and raised in the Detroit area, Kirabelle is a singer / songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist living and loving in Nashville, eternally chasing truth and expression through the medium that connects us all... music.  Her fondness for sampling old songs from the Great American Songbook along with folk favorites adding unique arrangements is evident in her style. "These songs should never be forgotten.  I strive to keep them alive in my music."  Kirabelle infuses her own compositions with elements of folk and jazz utilizing a variety of  instruments - ukulele, banjolele, guitar, cello, fiddle, piano, melodica, mandolin, dulicimer, flutes, whistles, and autoharp.  "It is my great hope to inspire others to research and recognize the glorious treasures left to us by those who've come before, tip our hats, pay tribute, and continue on, re-inventing the musical 'wheel.'"

THE FIRST REVIEW IS HERE!
"The Jazz Pop I mentioned?  
Kirabelle Frabotta and Brian Thibault give us the original "Hipster Holidaze", which plays off "Carol Of The Bells" a bit.  And, cats and kittens, this one's a keeper.  In all likelihood, the single best track on the compilation.  Just mesmerizing.  "Hipster Holidaze" will bring the cool to your Christmas collection and/or gathering.  Thumbs way up, aces, top o the pop--if you take nothing else away from "The Wrap Album", this one should make the whole thing worthwhile."
When I heard "Hipster Holidaze", it sounded to me like a hybrid of two songs--"Carol Of The Bells"
and ... "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck.  I could be completely wrong on all of it, but those were the two songs "Hipster Holidaze" brought to my head.  I feel so much better now."
