Embracing the genre-transcending spirit of today’s great independent artists, Bell cooks up a bubbling stew of roots, blues, jazz, pop, and country, with spicy vocals simmered to perfection.
For more than a decade, Lisa has shared a personal connection with her fans. From her evolution as a songwriter to her performances with legendary artists and her work with the healing benefits of music & sound, Lisa has invited us in to relate our own life experiences and journey we are all on together.
Lisa understands that positive music can make the world a better place and has been on a mission to inspire the listener take heart and take action with music that is fun, fresh, upbeat and thought provoking. For the past 11 years, she has been writing and performing songs that make a difference through positive, empowering lyrics at venues across the country and internationally. Her upcoming CD, The Italian Project (to be released February 2013), will be her fourth and the first transatlantic project that includes collaboration with her new friends and immensely talented musical colleagues in Italy.
Enthusiastic audiences have been enjoying Bell’s performances for years, and those who have been behind her since the early part of the 2000s have witnessed her growth from being primarily a jazz standards performer to a solid indie singer/songwriter with deep Americana, jazz, roots rock and blues influences.
Bell, who has a B.A. in Vocal Performance from the Conservatory of Music at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, has performed as the opening act for the JVC Winter Park Jazz Festival, on the same bill as Christopher Cross and Boney James. She also played as the opening act twice for guitar great Stanley Jordan, as well as for Oleta Adams and has been featured in “Jazz On The Tracks” performances aboard scenic trains touring through the Rocky Mountains. She performs across the country at venues large and small, and has toured Italy with her original music.
