Chameleon Skin EP Release

Posted in Uncategorized on May 8, 2011 by ianbellacoustic

I am pleased to announce the release of my debut EP Chameleon Skin, recorded at Gadgetbox Recording Studios, in Santa Cruz, CA and engineered by Andy Zenczak.

Artwork design by Sabrina Sierra, cover photos by Elisa Swanson, inside painting by Ian Bell.

Many Thanks to Jenn Gallacher for guidance.

Going into the studio I spoke at length with Any Zenczak about how to capture the sound of my live performances, without it being a live EP. It was important for me to be able to capture the raw energy of my music and I feel that we achieved that.

You can purchase it on my website or CD Baby

I hope you enjoy it.

Many Thanks,

Ian Bell

Ian Bell Acoustic web site launch

Posted in News on May 8, 2011 by ianbellacoustic

I am pleased to announce the launch of my new website designed by Jon Cattivera at Sleepless Media with help from Jenn Gallacher.

The home page photo was taken by Elisa Swanson.

The backdrop for the blog and bio page is an oil on canvas that I painted called “Get to Church”, which was inspired by a story that Andy Zenzak told me about ditching church when he was a kid to go and see a Jackson Pollock painting at art gallery across the street. Andy owns Gadget Box studios where I recorded the “Chameleon Skin” EP. The other background photos are pictures I’ve taken on travels around the states.

In designing the website, I wanted to reflect the style of music that I write.

You can purchase The Chameleon Skin EP on my website or you can download MP3’s at cdbaby
