Ever since Kris Bell was four years old, music has touched his soul. It was then that he first learned what music was and the power it had. At seven, he was given a classical guitar for Christmas, and for the next five years, Kris learned to harness his talent and build on the potential which he possessed.
In April 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 and RCA Recording Artist, Bo Bice. With Bo and his band Sugarmoney, Kris performed on numerous live television programs as well as touring nationally.
Currently Kris is busy working on pre-production tracks for an all acoustic album, as well as a highly anticipated full studio production due out later this year. For more information, please log on to www.krisbellmusic.com or www.myspace.com/kbell22

About Kris Bell
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 started recording his debut album shortly there after with Pino and co-producer and Matt Wilder.
On November 11th, Kris' five song EP "American Rock" was released.
This five song CD 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 early next year.
