Dana Harper is guided by love as both an artist and individual. Reaching far beyond the confines of romantic love, the expressive songstress lives a life deeply rooted in true self love, love of community, and love of life itself. A Dallas-native, Harper’s music is about embracing and celebrating life’s universal experiences. Her tone and style boasts the polish of an artist who has meticulously studied her craft, while simultaneously reflecting a completely distinctive quality.

La Bell grew up with a love of singing, but struggled with the anxiety of performing at an early age. When she discovered rap at 19, she knew she had found her way to do what she loved while still being able to express herself. Now, she combines the two worlds of song and lyricism to create her own personal sound. All authentically La.
