Here’s a playlist of my whole catalog on Spotify. Please share, it helps tremendously. Thanks!
First they came for Muslims and I did not speak out because I was not a Muslim. Then they came for the undocumented immigrants and I did not speak out because I was not an undocumented immigrant. Then they came for the LGBTQ community and I did not speak out because I wasn’t part of it. Then they came for the climate scientists and I did not speak out because I was not a climate scientist. Then they came for the press and media and I did not speak out because I was not part of the press or media. Then they came for the government employees and I did not speak out because I was not a government employee. Then they came for women’s rights and I did not speak out because I was not a woman. Then they came for me and there was no one left to stand up for me.

The destructive coal mining process known as mountaintop removal is leaving behind a grossly disfigured landscape.
I decided to publicly share the map I have been working on. I hope that this helps AAA artists with their booking, publicity, and tour planning.

This song Simple was inspired by a bumper sticker I saw while sitting in Northern Virginia Fairfax County traffic one day. I wrote it years ago but it seems even more relevant now with all the electronic devices that we are plugged into.
I worked in the high tech industry until 2008 when I unplugged and was laid off during the recession. So I went to Nashville to make my debut recording and haven’t looked back. This song was recorded at my actual desk built into the wall in our den. Thanks to NPR for playing the best music. Where would radio be today without you?
Now you can listen to a few songs from my new CD “Witness” and the previous one “The Ballad of Philo Paul”. Also check out the live performance at The Rex Theater in July. Everybody have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and New Year!!
Peace and blessings,
Last Friday The Wandering Coalition band and I performed live on the DVE Morning Show Coffeehouse! Here is the audio recorded live by the sound engineer Thanks Jeff!!
Enjoy and stay tuned for photos, audio and video from The Bell Fam Jam that night at The Rex Theater.
To celebrate getting a gig on WDVE coffeehouse you can download the song Stolen Horses for free on my BandCamp site.

Some very cool stuff coming up folks. A live performance on WDVE coffeehouse and finally a CD release show that will include both of my sons bands; The Rusty Haywhackers and The Weathered Road, my niece’s band, The Recipe, and my Dad’s band, The Steamshovel Blues Band. Details to follow.
As of today there are three online sites where you can get a CD or a digital download. My Bandcamp site http://tmitchellbell.bandcamp.com/ has the option of getting a physical CD or digital download with payments through PayPal.
CDbaby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/tmitchellbell3 has both downloads and physical CD’s.
And NoiseTrade http://noisetrade.com/mitchellbell/witness Where you can download the songs for free or leave a tip in the tip jar.
So there it is for now. No reason not to enjoy the new record while I recover from my wrist surgery and then the CD release party will happen in a big way!
