Art Bell

About: Art Bell

The blues genre and form is omnipresent, and like a womb it has nurtured and given birth to distinct genres and sub-genres urban styles, delta blues, Chicago blues and boogie-woogie, to name a few. Many musicians are known to play a form, or a sub-genre, that has spawned from the blues, but very rarely do you stumble across a true blues musician, like Art Bell, who embodies the genre and form of the blues in its entirety.

Art Bell has had music in his soul since he was five-years-old. At the age of 12, after cutting grass all summer, Art saved up enough money to purchase his first guitar from a jazz musician, named Fleet Green, who owned a music store. I never go anywhere without a guitar these days, says Art while sitting across from me in a local Thai restaurant, in Charlotte, NC. Art has since lain to rest his first guitar and now performs with three friends he likes to call, Miss Fender, Miss Gibson and Miss Rickenbacker. Besides for being a guitarist, Art is also an accomplished vocalist, bassist, percussionist and keyboardist.

I have been a performer for about 45-years, and through the years I have become a better listener and a well seasoned musician, song writer, lyricist and composer, says Art who has composed over 300 original tracks.

Influences: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, to name but a few.
