American Rock Artist Kris Bell blends captivating melodies with powerful guitar hooks, creating a bold, modern sound for today’s Rock and Adult Contemporary markets. Kris’ songwriting stems from deep within him and flows out in warm, rich vocal tones on ballads such as “Destined” and “Letter of Goodbye” while belting out his high-powered rock anthems “Livin’ For Tomorrow” and "I Know the Sun Will Call" with soul and grit. He tops his songs off with dynamic guitar solos reminiscent of legends Clapton and Vaughan, but with his own signature flare of smooth and bluesy cries capped with intense and ferocious jamming.
In April of 2005, Kris moved from his hometown of San Diego, CA to Nashville, TN. Within one month of relocating, he was quickly hired as the Lead Guitarist for American Idol star Bo Bice. For the next two years, Kris performed on numerous television programs, toured nationally, recorded on a major label record and was featured in a number one music video on MTV and VH1.
In 2007, Kris began pursuing a solo career, bringing his captivating rock style to new fans from Georgia to California. During a show in Nashville, he caught the attention of producer and Muzik Mafia Percussionist, Pino Squillace and in January, landed a deal with Motivo Productions. Kris began recording his debut album shortly there after with Pino and co-producer and Matt Wilder.
On November 11th, Kris released "American Rock".
This five song EP is a hard hitting, emotional journey through passionate lyrics, melodic grooves, and forceful guitar work that draws the listener in with its addictive flavor, and is just a taste of what's to come from Kris' full length album "Times Like These", due out this year.
