Louie’s talent for writing, singing and performing has taken him to stages all over the world. and in studios from New York to LA, to write original songs for tv shows from Keeping Up with the Kardashians to The Real World, God Friended Me and more. He has also written theme songs for ESPN and PBS.

The passion in Bello’s singing and performing has deeply connected him with his fans in Boston and all over the country. He touches people through his art, linking his story to theirs, never holding back on his emotions. This ability has earned Louie awards and opportunities.  The Improper Bostonian named him one of their Best Of, and he earned a Nightlife award for Best Performer.

“Rescue Me”

Bello wrote this one with Jason Tucker in Nashville and says, “I featured Jason singing on this one because it became such a powerful song that I wanted his passion.  It was produced by Coran Henley. It is a song about thanking that person that rescues you through the tough times. It could be your mom, dad, sibling, wife, dog or even a stranger. We all need someone when times get rough.”
