My name is Summer Belt and I am a musician/songwriter living near Indianapolis. I began songwriting at the age of 12 and I recorded my debut album Save The World when I was 14. The album featured a collection of original songs produced along with guitar virtuoso Michael Kelsey. I soon began performing locally and continued to build my setlist and strengthen my craft. In 2017 I won the SAMI Songwriter Scholarship and earned a scholarship to the Berklee School of Music Summer Program. I have since worked on many projects such as recording an original song that was featured on artist Nicky Kerr's debut album. I have performed all across the state opening at venues such as the Lafayette Theater and the Delphi Opera House. I recently recorded my new single which is set to be released in June! Check out my videos and performances and see what I have been up too!! Solo or with a band, I am ready to rock! Please contact me to book a show!
CD Release Concert Reviews:
“Summer is a talented young songwriter, with tons of energy and originality. She sparkled onstage, giving the audience a great show by playing electric and acoustic guitars, along with keyboard. Her personality and passion for her music, as well as her ability to work with other, more seasoned performers, filled the evening with great lyrics, super guitar licks, and talented singing. Summer is a gifted songwriter and performer, and I'm excited to see where she'll go in the future!” Dianne
“I just want to say that seeing Summer perform was such a treat. She has a strength and versatility in her performance that is truly impressive. Beyond her stage presentation, the songs that she has written are evocative, insightful, and have a zest that engages the audience in such meaningful ways. We enjoyed the show from beginning to end!” Fran and Larry
Album review: “This sounds FANTASTIC! It's so darned creative I can't keep from smiling. The songs are so hooky! I can't think of anything negative. It's such a nice variety of styles.” Mike Wilson, President of Aire Born Recording in Indianapolis
Review from the Concert at the Speak EZ in Broad Ripple: “14-year old Indianapolis-born rock prodigy, Summer, embodies the best of both local and unique. I still remember the first time I saw her perform--she's one of the most talented guitar players I've ever heard. We always want to create an experience for our attendees. No one can do that better than Summer.” Justin Knepp, President of Indiana On Tap
