3 chords & the truth

Benjamin Bell is a Country and Americana Singer/Songwriter from Northern Colorado.  Raised on an eclectic mix of American vinyl and country eight track tapes to the backdrop of a small Colorado farm, it was the surprise gift of a dreadnought guitar from a girlfriend his sophomore year in college that really sparked the songwriting journey.  Pursuing Acting and Directing at Colorado State University helped to transform his songwriting into a stage presence and local performances soon followed.  In 2016, he was a finalist in the regional competition "The Boot Grill Voice" and drew comparisons to Eric Church and Casey Donahew.  A visit to Nashville in December earned him a spot at a Writer's Round in early 2017 at the Commodore Grille.  He currently resides east of Fort Collins Colorado and is looking forward to a busy 2017 splitting time between Northern Colorado's vibrant music scene and Nashville's incredible songwriting community.
