ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LEROY BELL

Singer-songwriter LeRoy Bell has just released his newest album -TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. Written and recorded over the course of three years, STORY is the natural follow-up to Bell's acoustic- oriented SPENDING TIME album which sold more than 12,000 copies due to national (100 stations) airplay, solid print reviews and Bell's tenacious touring schedule.

Having recently opened for artists as diffuse as BB King, Al Green, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, LeAnn Rimes, the Temptations, the O'Jays, Mavis Staples, Colin Hay, and many, many more-Bell has expanded his songwriting themes and performing skills in preparation for recording STORY. The album's 14 tracks reflect the artist's themes of love, humanity, social issues, and individualism in a time of political and social flux.

Supporting Bell's visions on the road and in the studio is his support band His Only Friends comprised of Phil Peterson, cello, Rick Novito, guitar, Terry Morgan, bass, and Stan White, percussionist. (Bell also doubles as a multi instrumentalist on drums, guitar, banjo, accordion and percussion).

LeRoy’s first passion as a drummer gives his percussive guitar playing a unique position in his music. It’s the basis for all of his songs -providing a constant background of passion and soul to the music.
Bell's knack for artful songwriting has an interesting history. As the youthful songwriting team Bell & James, who recorded for A&M Records, Casey James and Bell are the authors of Elton John's Grammy-nominated 1979 Top Ten hit, "Mama Can't Buy You Love," and John's 2004 number one UK single "Are You Ready For Love.” Bell and James also attained Billboard top ten status with their dance hit, "Livin’ It Up Friday Night".

Bell's song writing eventually became his main focus over performing allowing him to collaborate with legendary songwriter/producer Thom Bell (his uncle) and with again with
James penning songs for The Spinners, The OJays, Rita Marley, The Temptations, Johnny Mathis, Phyllis Hyman and many more.

LeRoy rocks!
We first heard and saw LeRoy Bell at the HalfShell in Roseburg Oregon this past summer as he warmed the audience for Etta James. What a performance, what beautiful music, and in a beautiful setting. LeRoy's music rocked!
