Singer/songwriter Bela is the alter-ego or stage-name of Icelandic visual artist. Bela started out as a guitarist, playing in various bands, with musical styles ranging from death-metal to electro in the Icelandic music scene.

Belas turn from band based music to the solo performer came about from being to busy with his visual art and finding that being in a band was to time consuming and often straining. He soon began recording his own songs at home and singing them himself (something he never did in the bands). These songs he recorded were influencedby the music he grew up listening to, and they have drawn comparisons to artists such as Nick Drake, Kings of Convenience and John Martyn.
