New Artist: Jennah Bell | “Early Bird”
Thanks to our friends over at IVYBetty.com, we’ve stumbled upon an up and coming artist that is steeped in talent but not in media hype. Hailing from the Bay Area in Northern California, Jennah Bell’s style incorporates her unique and diverse upbringing. Music became a very serious career choice when she was blessed with the opportunity to attend a wonderful summer program affiliated with the Grammy Foundation. A competitive audition process placed her as one of 11 singer/songwriters from around the U.S. Her peers, elders, and music business professionals (Paul Williams, Jimmy Jam, INXS, David Foster) embraced her unorthodox writing style, alternative/folk/soul song melodies, and endearing honest vocals.
This gave her the courage and motivation she needed to apply to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. She has had the privilege and honor to sit down with Paul Simon and work on some of her original tunes this past year and became part of some very special music project called Making Music Herstory. As a result, she also appeared in this year’s BET Music Awards. Now at 21, nearing the end of her Berklee experience, she has committed to spreading love through her music one planet at a time…
Her EP “Early Bird” is also most certainly a hidden gem so do check it out here, and also at IVYBetty.
