Find out a little more about this musician / model below!
Tell us a little bit about Bella Hay, where are you from, how old are you, what do you do? I’m based in The Hague, Holland. I’m 25 years old and I’m a musician.
What was it like growing up with a Rock-‘n-Roller for a dad?
Extremely normal! Guess I slept through all the parties.
Did the way you grew up have a lot to do with why you went into the music business yourself?
I was lucky with so many instruments laying around. It was never really a conscious choice I made, going into music. It has just always been my biggest interest, borderline obsession. Maybe it’s a genetic thing, like how my dad and I have the same handwriting and both like reading science fiction.
Tell us about your band Tears & Marble.
We got together around three years ago, just to listen to each other’s stuff and have a drink. A week later we wrote and recorded 5 tracks together. After we recorded a cover version of ‘What Is Love’ it seemed like a fun idea to shoot a video and put it online. Things got out of hand after that.
Where did the name Tears & Marble come from.
It sounds cool & cheesy.
Anything in the near future we can look forward to?
We’re releasing some new stuff in september.
How did you get into modeling?
One of my best friends is a great photographer, and likes to shoot me. I don’t really look at it as modeling as it’s a skill and usually I just stand there and be myself.
Biggest pro about modeling?
You get to wear fancy clothes.
Biggest pro about being in music?
For everyone I love to be healthy.
