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.
I will be performing at the Fossil-Free Energy Fair on July 26th. This is a really cool event sponsored by Marcellus Outreach Butler and Slippery Rock University Sustainable Enterprise Accelerator. Free, Free, Free, from fossil fuels!
A very special evening, three generations of family, five bands all together for one night of great music.
Tommy Bell, Harry Turner and Tony Janflone Sr. formed Marshmellow Steamshovel, a psychedelic rock band, in Pittsburgh back in the 60’s. They released only one single on Head Records in 1968 with the songs Mr. Mold and Steamshovel.
Sadly Harry Turner passed away, but the surviving original members Tony Janflone Sr., guitar, and Tommy Bell, drums, will reunite with Don Czaplicki on bass and Charlie Barath on harmonica, to play at The Bell Family Jam at The Rex Theater July 25th, with doors opening at 7 pm the music starts at 8 pm.
T. Mitchell Bell, Tommy’s son, will play with his band The Wandering Coalition.
Christopher Bell and Matthew Locy, T. Mitchell’s sons will play with their bands The Weathered Road and The Rusty Haywhackers.
Shannon Jones, Tommy’s granddaughter and daughter of Chere Bell Jones will play with her and her partner Joe Pritchard’s band The Recipe.
This will prove to be a once in a lifetime all out jam that you don’t want to miss.
