Chris Bell in concert at legendary TAFFYs:
Christopher Bell has played at legendary TAFFYS numerous times and is not your average cellist. Using various pedals he layers and distorts his electric cello creating quirky, catchy indie pop music. Christopher is known both for his use of technology – which he uses to sample his cello live – and for his unique methods of touring – via canoe, bike and on foot.
Starting music at age 10, Christopher obtained a degree in audio endineering, spending his early 20’s recording bands with a mix of homebuilt and modified equipment. He eventually combined the cello and his recording expertise developing his signature style of layered live music.
Christopher’s DIY unique approach has earned him much public attention and press. He has taught seminars on songwriting, and music business. Earned national attention from NPR, the NY Times and CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. He is the co-owner of Indie Booker, a business helping independent artists book their own tours.
As a cellist Bell has shared the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs, and has lent his music to TV pilots, web series and independent films.
