Chrysta Bell is a performing artist, recording artist, and model who incorporates dynamic theatrical and multimedia elements into unforgettable performance experiences.
She has shared the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson, Brian Setzer, Donovan, Adrian Utley(of Portishead), and members of King Crimson. Bell has had the great opportunity to write and record songs with iconic film director David Lynch, their collaboration yielding both the haunting ‘Polish Poem’ from his ‘INLAND EMPIRE’ soundtrack and an 11-song album titled 'This Train', released through La Rose Noire records. She is currently touring internationally, bringing the music of 'This Train' to clubs, theaters and festival stages.
Chrysta Bell began her professional music career in Austin, Texas, as the lead vocalist for RCA Victor's euro swing act, 8 1⁄2 Souvenirs. Chrysta Bell enjoys chilled, unfiltered sake, vintage gear with glowing lights and thinks that sustainablity is super sexy.
"...dreamy and torrid, smokey and tortured... performed with grinding finesse..." Rolling Stone
"... a muse of higher order, a cool siren with a stunning voice of rare dramatic power and range." Irish Times "...rhythms are designed to ensnare, and Bell's voice always sounds as if it's emerging from smoke." La Times
"...comparisons with Portishead and Massive Attack could certainly be drawn. The dark and fiery guise of Lana Del Rey also came to mind. However, it became evident last night that Bell’s on-stage persona propels her to another level entirely." The Upcoming
"Chrysta Bell looks like a dream and Chrysta Bell Sings like a dream. And the dream is coming true." David Lynch
