Adey Bell joins the ranks of such solo female virtuosos as Tori Amos, Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell, blending classically influenced piano composition with raw lyrical reflective intimacy. The daughter of two concert organists, Adey was born under the wide northern sky of Kalispell, Montana. Her music reflects this expanse. A consummate performer, she lures audiences with her textured, melodic piano and warms them with a voice as gritty with soul as it is soaring with ambiance and mystery. Adey has performed in numerous venues across the West Coast. Listeners have remarked that her sound cleanses the soul and calls to mind the moments of life that should be remembered. A talented actress as well as composer, her work is featured in the forthcoming Sacred Mysteries film, Shasta.
"Adey is not just a great musician, she takes your breath away. The first time we heard her play and sing we looked at each other and said, she belongs on stage!"
–Terces and Matthew Engleheart, Founders of Cafe Gratitude
"She takes delight in her playing. It might be a delight to do the wondrous with pleasure and ease. Perfect, perfect; piano playing and singing. We don't see this much. Only in nature..."
–Michael Hurley, folk legend
"A one woman cabaret of emotional impressionism."
–Alexander Polinsky, actor
"Adey was a real joy to work with on my solo album project. She has a great ability to hear just what kind of harmony will lend itself to create synergy with depth. She is creative, multifaceted, has a fantastic voice and is a very quick study. If she is available, hire her. You won't be disappointed."
