December 11, 2008: Hey guys happy holidays we have been bad about updates again, please wish Percy cat a swift recovery we know he is well. Leila has had several shows to keep her busy lately and her photography are up at gallery Lombardi so buy some! Leila's Winter wonderland of noise show at the Parish in Austin is coming up and we know you will not want to miss this mind blowing event! We will have Turkish delights, candy and crazy noise!!! Check tour page for info.
April 21, 2008: So much has been going on we wish Prosperity Leila's other goldfish peace in the next world Leila is releasing new stuff in a few weeks yay! We are all really well and active but way too lazy to be updating this site on time lol!!! New shows will be posted soon and other fun stuff. Leila hopes all of you start protesting against chemtrails and sexism. Way to go Serj Tankian for his Anti war efforts :)
Sept 21, 2007: First let us say RIP to the great Luciano
Pavarotti , this hit home for Leila because her dearest love Houstonian
Naya Rodriguez was studying opera with him in Italy, so Leila sends
her warm regards to Naya and family as well as his fans, she loves you
Naya. Well the show at Enchanted Forest was Friday and the forest was
as spectacular as ever, Leila is happy she could contribute her time,
talent and treasure to this charitable event to help save the pretty
forest. The soundman did however have some jealousy and misogyny issues
towards Leila and didn’t have any of the inputs he had promised
her for her contact mics or the short mic stands Leila had asked for
days in advance on the phone with him, he never let her sound check
early knowing she had 40 acoustic instuments and turned her sound on
and off during the show and afterwards mocked her for being an experimental
Iranian girl musician and even tried to call security on her when her
foot accidentally knocked a mic stand caught in chords near him not
even touching him, security laughed him off because they saw what happened!
But Leila still performed her set for charity as planned although some
of her dear fans couldn’t even hear her. However the soundman’s
wrath didn’t end there, he has been forwarding phony email msgs
in Leila’s name to his fan base and hers trying to ruin her reputation
and some of those were forwarded to the Ellahy Amen email but we are
going to choose PEACE not war in dealing with him. So we ask our fans
no matter what they do hold peace thoughts ok? And be smart check IP
addresses for Leila’s name in fake emails forwarded by him, know
that forwarded emails can have text changes made to them. Also Leila's
email ends with leilabela.com.. at this time. Leila wants to thank her
lovely band for the role they played in her show. Now for other news,
Leila still has a major crush on her Italian Nana, not to be confused
wit Naya lol so many girls in Italy with N’s lol. And promises
to visit Italy soon to see both those girls haha and her guy friends
^^ too. The film (actualy the disapearing actor Jahny Beau Walter) has
already given Leila two nervous breakdowns and she has not even started
shooting yet but we hope it will go ok for her. Leila will not be performing
in the Halloween show at the forest because it will be mostly fire dancers
that night but she highly recommends attending. And one last note, Leila
loved the Henry Rollins spoken word tour she attended she feels he is
so right on the money with his beliefs and she is very proud of him
for traveling and finding out the truth about the countries he visited,
we hope he keeps up the good work and Leila said she had not laughed
that much in ages and loved his Dave Vanian turning into bat joke lol.
So huge kudos to Henry for being an independent mind and not a lemming
August 1, 2007: Ahaha we know we have all been either
lazy (myself), busy having the usual nervous breakdowns (all of us),
wallowing in relationship issues (glad that’s over), bored to death
as usual and causing too much havoc (Lexion), traveling (Maya Bond),
sending super sexy messages on myspace to a certain pretty Italian girl
(Leila), spending too much time on yachts (Claude) and not updated this
thing in way too long so forgive us all but here goes…..Hmmm where shall
we start, well first and most important we will say RIP to “Faith” Leila’s
beloved dear 6 year old goldfish that passed away a few days ago, we
send you love and light and peace. Second, we have concert info; Leila
will be playing at the Enchanted Forest in Sept and performing in their
Halloween show also in Oct and that is a hell of a fire show so be there.
She is working on playing Italy and Greece Sept but nothing set yet.
April 12, 2007: The April 20th show in Bologna Italy has been reset do to Leila's passport not arriving in time (blame passport office) so she is instead playing at same club on 9th June but dates are not yet set in stone check back. We love our friends and fans in Italy and know you understand our hands were tied.
March 2, 2007: Ok are you ready for updates? We are! So here goes.... Leila is booked to
play Italy with Splinter vs. Stalin in April check tour section big noise
show! We have launched pages on myspace for Leila, EAR and Maya Bond.
Leila's is up since November 2006 and she is up to 2000 something friends in
three months, more than we had predicted! You can visit her page at
www.myspace.com/leilabela the links to our other pages are in her top
friends list like EAR and Maya Bonds page. So add us if you have not
already! We have been very busy with looking at new artists to sign and
recording Lexions new album and schmoozing on myspace. We got waaaaaaaaaay
too many submissions for the label so far and are trying to listen to all of
them so if you submitted something be easy on us we are swamped!
December 24, 2006: Whatever path or faith you celebrate in this time of joy, I wish you all the best! May all your dreams come true for you in the new year and may you be a light in the world for others to see. I will be celebrating the birth of the christ within me and although Jesus was not born in December, I will pretend he was and celebrate his birth this week anyway because I am a devoted follower of his teachings and ways.
November 17, 2006: LEILA IS IN A PROSPERITY CLASS AT HER CHURCH AND THIS IS THE WEEK FOR FORGIVNESS AND STUFF SO SHE ASKED US TO EDIT OUT SOME NAMES OF OUR ENEMIES FROM THE SITE AND FORGIVE THEM, SOMETHING ABOUT HOW WHAT U PUT OUT IN THE UNIVERSE COMES BACK, ANYWAY SHE IS THE BOSS SO WE DID IT.
October 20, 2006: Leila wants to thank Lexion Blacklord for flying to her rescue all the way from Europe when she was feeling stressed out and bothered. She had a great fun time showing you around Austin Lexi.
September 28, 2006: We as a label feel that Fitzgeralds in Houston did not uphold their end of contract with us and are last minute making changes that greatly effect the way the show would go, that is why OUR LABEL MUST CANCEL THE HOUSTON show. But we already have offers from several Houston venues who are more than happy to accomodate us in the future. We will see you guys in Houston very soon but not this friday as had been planned.
September 24, 2006: Wow what a show!!! First EAR show with LEILA BELA and MAYA BOND was an amazing blast.

Check the tour/shows section for details on what those two girls have brewed up for you and when and where.
June 11, 2006: Newsweek is doing a story that mentions little Maya Bond, check out next weeks issue in the periscope section. We are very proud of Maya. Also Leila and Maya will be hitting the road soon and based on popular demand...Leila is considering letting these shows be open to the public versus invite only.
May 3, 2006: Maya Bond played her very first gig at Rice university last Saturday and despite the bad weather causing the radio stations to not cover it live, it went great! We are very proud of our little kindergarten prodigy.
April 21, 2006: We are proud to say Maya Bond will be performing her very first concert live at the KTRU Rice university radio station on April 29th, see ktru.org for details. You can not only tune in to ktru but you can also come and see her show live on the Rice campus.
April 20, 2006: Hi everyone we appreciate all who have shown an interest in being represented by our label. We will review what you submitted and get back to you if we are interested. So if you get some mail from Paris France, Oxford England or Austin Texas open it, it's likely to be from one of us! We do have one artist, a very special one, to add to our list. He is one of Leila's top 4 favorite musician (more like one of only four musicians she will call a true artist) We will release his name after all the legal jumbo in 7 different languages is settled and he is ours OURS OURS for one album ONLY. Also if you wish to submit, do NOT use the old po box address on Leila Bela's CD sleeve, it is no longer valid, send all submissions to the address in Paris France listed in contact page thank you.
