Album Notes
LeRoy Bell started singing and playing the guitar at the age of eight in Darmstadt, Germany. His father, a Sergeant in the United States amy, moved the family back and forth from Europe to the U.S. several times before retiring in Tacoma, Washington.

Shortly after that, LeRoy moved to Seattle. Although underage at the time, he began playing the local club circuit at night and honing his song-writing skills during the day under the watchful eyes of his Uncle, Thom Bell. Thom Bell, a celebrated producer-songwriter, taught LeRoy and later Casey James the do's and don'ts of song-writing. LeRoy and Casey also known as Bell & James went on to write songs for many great artists, such as Elton John, Johnny Mathis, The Temptations, The Spinners, The Ojays, Teddy Pendergrass and Lou Rawls, just to name a few. Later, Bell & James signed to A & M records as artists and released two albums one of which produced the top ten hit "Livin' It Up Friday Night" which was recently sampled by Puff Daddy & Co. for the latest Notorious B.I.G. album, Born Again. His latest song to be covered, is a song LeRoy co-wrote with Thom Bell and Casey James for the ledendary Elton John. The title "Are you Ready for Love"is being covered by Fat Boy Slim, and is schedualed for release in the U.K. this summer, 2003.

After years of writing for other artists, LeRoy Bell is ready to kick off his solo career.

Amazingt, serene, right to the heart
I have heard LeRoy 3 times now. The first time I saw him, was at Nordstrooms in South Center Mall. I have followed around since them. I have brought many friends to discover the wonderful sounds of LeRoy's accoustic guitar and heavenly voice. It is a pleasure to listen to you LeRoy, every time. Hope I can continue to hear you play, stay kool.


Beautiful, easy and soulful
My husband and I saw LeRoy open up for BB King in Omaha NE performing songs from this CD. It was the first time I had heard of him and after the concert, I had to have the music for myself. Beautiful, meaningful lyrics and immensely enjoyable.

Love it.
I LOVE it. I heard one song on NPR, waited through the whole playlist to find out who it was, and ordered it immediately. It's great.


Saw LeRoy open for BB King in Grand Forks, ND. Very impressed with the soulful lyics. My wife loved the CD and even my thirteen and nine year old sons like the music. Looking forward to hearing more!


LeRoy's music is from the heart
I ordered 2 c.d.s of LeRoy Belle, and both are wonderful. His music is from the heart, and our friends have liked the music as well. We saw him as an opening for the Etta James concert at the HalfShell in Roseburg on August 15, 2006. He is terrific, along with his band!

Fantastic Original Soulful Sound
I saw Leroy Bell as an opening act for Al Greene in Saratoga, CA. I loved his original, soulful sound and heartfelt lyrics so much that I knew I had to buy his CD. I love every song on the CD and I can listen to it over and over again and not get sick of it. The only reason I refrained from giving it 5 stars is because I was disappointed to find only 6 tracks.


Didn't think it could get better.....
If you think the Spending Time Cd from Leroy Bell was amazing.....wait til you hear his latest album "Two Sides to Every Story"!!! Hurry, hurry, hurry and buy this CD online. I didn't think that it could get any better, and he has done it. Just like his first CD, it is so AMAZING and you will play it over, and over, and over...... Thumbs WAY WAY WAY up!!!!!


great album, great service
I saw LeRoy and his Only Friends open for B.B. King in Grand Forks and was instantly taken in by his voice and the band's sound. This CD is absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to hear more from them!

Easy Listening
This CD is great for any mood! My wife and I both really enjoyed one of his live performances and were happy to buy "Spending Time"! My favorite song is Devine Intervention but they are all good. I wish that there were more tracks and that is good problem to have! Buy it before the labels get a hold of LeRoy and his talented band!


CD baby is awesome and efficiant. This is a great CD that i couldn't find anywhere else! Thank you!
