"Thunderous Rock and intense, thought-provoking lyrics

“One of the best straight up Rock 'n Roll albums of 2015! 'The Day & The Dark' is a solid album from start to finish. Every song has a meaning for us living an everyday life.”

Steve Minton - Steve O's Music Madness

“In "the Day & the Dark" (his latest album) Kris Bell gets it. He gets Rock. He gets tone. He gets lyrical hooks. He gets melody. He gets what it takes to grab the listener by the ears and not let go until they're rockin' right along with him, making them, and us, fans for life. Kris Bell is the real deal!”

“Kris Bell is someone that you should give a good, long, hard listen to – both through “The Day & The Dark” as well as all of his previous work to date. He’s that good.”

"Playing American Rock is second nature to Nashville's Kris Bell. A dynamic guitarist and singer/songwriter, Kris never disappoints when he's up on stage playing his brand of modernized Southern Rock".

"Kris Bell is pure American Rock ʻn Roll. You're guaranteed an amazing, electrifying show every time he and his band hit the stage. His originals are relevant and extremely radio friendly. Bell knows exactly who he is as an artist and a musician. He brings that complete package to the music industry."

"Kris Bell is an undiscovered gem. He is an astonishing songwriter with a strong voice, and the talent that is ready to take him to the next level. Kris Bell will be one of the next big things to come out of Nashville." Tony Stone - Radio Personality/The Local Buzz Host, WBUZ-FM 102.9 Everything That Rocks, Nashville, TN

"Forged from the fires of true Southern Rock, Kris Bell performs with white hot intensity unlike anything you have ever seen. His audience increases each time I book the band, who are always professional, and one of the hardest working groups I have ever had the pleasure to work with!" Bonnie Neves - Dungeon Promotions

““Great band and musicianship, but most of all, great people!” ”

Bobby Ingram - Lead Guitarist for Molly Hatchet

“Kris Bell Snags Music City Mayhem Award! All those years of playing guitar have paid off for Nashville rock artist Kris Bell, who walked away with the award for Best Rock Guitar at the Music City Mayhem Awards. The first annual award show was held Saturday April 9 at the Rutledge in Nashville. Dungeon Promotions put on the event to honor Nashville’s rock and heavy metal artists. Bell was nominated for four awards in the rock category: Best Male Vocal, Best Guitar, Best Live Band and Best Song for Livin’ for Tomorrow. “To walk away with the award for best guitar was humbling. I’ve been playing guitar since I was seven and to get recognition for something I love to do was awesome,” says Bell. “I was in a tough category with some amazing guitarists, so just to be nominated felt great.””

“NASHVILLE ROCK'S BAND OF THE YEAR! Kris Bell and his band got my attention last year in November at Rockbar. They started off the set with my favorite song of all time, “Gimme Shelter” by the Stones, and as he and the band went through some more of my favorite songs and some great originals, I was hooked. With John Cooper on bass, Bryan Denton on guitar, and Shane Sexton on the drums, this is one of the best bands playing around Nashville. If you haven’t got a copy of “Turn it On, Turn It Up”, your collection is sorely missing. You can argue that there are some really great bands here in Nashville, but sorry, this one is my favorite and no, you can’t change my mind!”

“Nashville transplant Kris Bell and the boys put forth a thundering set that combined the flavors of Lynyrd Skynyrd, a pinch of Stevie Ray, a dash of Creed, and a healthy dose of the intangible which is purely Kris Bell Band “American Rock”!”

“Rock is alive and well and can be found in abundance on Kris Bell’s new album, Turn It On, Turn It Up...Starting things off with the amps cranked up is “Livin’ for Tomorrow,” which sets the tone for the rest of the album. Bell declares on the fast-paced opening song. From this moment on, listeners are given ample warning to expect plenty of catchy hooks, sing-a-long choruses and copious guitar solos. Throughout the record, Bell mixes modern, alternative and Southern rock to create his own American rock style.”

““Wow is all I can say. He has passion, something you don’t see in every entertainer. I just can’t say enough good things about him. There were so many people who came up to me after his set and told me how great he was, as if a spell had been cast upon us. Now that’s talent!””

Irish Nancy - Nashville Rock.net

““Bell has all the right moves onstage, commanding the audience’s attention and rewarding his onlookers with vocal anthems and solos which move to the fore, yet coalesce ever so well with the whole of the song. A combination of contemporary rock and Southern twang, Bell reinforced his credentials as a genuine rock talent.””

““…Kris Bell and his band put on a hard charging, get off your ass, shake that stage till it drops kind of set, they also covered the Allman Brothers, “Whipping Post” which got the crowd into a real frenzy. I loved the show and can’t wait till Saturday when he plays an acoustic set for us, should be interesting, he is very talented…””

Irish Nancy - Nashville Rock.net

"Captivating and powerful Rock...A bold mix of rock, ballads, and contemporary music"

Redding Record Searchlight

“The music Kris is producing is hauntingly beautiful, soulful and leaves the listener wanting to hear more.”

“Austin was hot, but no one even felt the heat, unless it was what was coming off that stage.”

“Kris Bell showed he is no lightweight in the guitar division as he stood next to Rossington and Evans of Lynyrd Skynyrd and looked and sounded as if he'd been playing with that band his entire life...”

“With his intense stage presence and soulful, dynamic guitar work, Bell became one of San Diego's most talked about performers and has been compared to legends such as Jimi Hendrix and has even been called "the next generation Eric Clapton"”

Alabama Alive Magazine

“..Bell just lets it all out when he hits the bridge into his lead, arching his back and standing on his toes, with his guitar pointing to the sky... ”

“...Bell's pounding rhythms and leads are intense and breathtaking...”
