Emily Bell

Emily Bell is into southern blues, soul, 60′s rock 'n roll, and setting stages on fire. The Austin-based artist is celebrating the release of her debut album, In Technicolor, with an album release party on Friday, May 24 at The North Door. The album was produced by roots rocker John Evans and Grammy-winning engineer Steve Christensen.

"Emily wrote for years in Raphael Saadiq's studio in Burbank, Calif., before I found her," Evans says. "It was obvious she was no newcomer to pen and paper; the songs we were writing together had teeth."

Texas Americana great Hayes Carll says: "Emily Bell will knock you down, then lick your wounds, burn up the stage and leave you begging for more."

Nakia, a fellow Austin-based artist and semifinalist on "The Voice," raves: "After seeing Emily Bell live I felt that she must be possessed by a raw electric demon singing with the voice of a heartbroken, fallen angel. I was immediately addicted and ready for my next fix."
