Cosima Bellamacina is a singer-songwriter and artist from London. Born and raised in North London, Cosima trained at Sylvia Young and Italia Conti in singing, acting and dance. She then went on to The London School of Speech & Drama and The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts to then later appearing in two Harry Potter films.
From a young age Cosima has been fascinated by music, art and the world of creativity. Cosima sang at Camden School for Girls choir, and had piano lessons at school. ‘Sitting at the piano and playing freestyle chords allows me to see where the chords take me, what stands out to the emotion I’m feeling at that time, that’s usually how it starts’. She started writing songs and making music from a very young age but has always kept it to herself until now. ‘Growing up I would go to my dad's recording studio in Hoxton Square, London, it was great hanging out with the musicians and singers, this had a strong influence over me. I had an early appreciation of how the studios work and it was fascinating hearing all the different styles of music being created. It’s so lovely thinking back but as a nine year old I took it for granted. I think what I loved most was picking up on the vibe in the studio with musicians, like a sacred environment and hearing the music coming out of massive speakers in the control room/production studio’.
Cosima has modelled for brands such as Burberry and Stella McCartney where she featured her artwork for 'Save The Bees' fashion campaign, she has also appeared in British Vogue along with her sisters.
In 2019, Cosima Bellamacina performed her song ‘Your Love Saved Me’ with pianist Clifford Slapper (written by Cosima Bellamacina and Benny Bellamacina) for UK feature film ‘Hurt by Paradise’ which is now available on digital. In that same year Cosima released her artist book of drawings and poetry titled 'We Sell Our Beauty Too Cheap' and participated in two exhibitions. The book created to be apart of the ‘Art of Caring’ exhibition in London, Kings Cross on the theme of mental health alongside her artwork series 'Love, Time and Death'.
