Violet Bell

“In a crowded field of Americana artists who claim influence from disparate genres…. Violet Bell truly pushes against the limitations and expectations of genres and genders.. Ross’s soulful vocal gymnastics sound downright wild… defying stylistic bounds.” Indyweek

Violet Bell is re-wilding Americana. On their upcoming album Shapeshifter they reimagine the ancient story of the selkie, a mythical seal that can shed her skin to become human. At the album’s heart is an exploration of identity and belonging beyond cultural norms.
Lizzy Ross (guitar/banjo/vocals) and Omar Ruiz-Lopez (cello, violin, guitar, mandolin,vocals) blend pop sensibilities with classical chops and folk traditions creating an “elegant marriage of strings and vocals…delicate yet powerful,” (Encore Magazine)

Omar Ruiz-Lopez was born in Panama and raised in Puerto Rico, while Lizzy Ross grew up in Maryland and NYC. Given their wildly different backgrounds, Violet Bell has a unique perspective on the roots music traditions that inform their sound. Currently based in North Carolina, they’re tending to traditions and creating a new way forward with like-minded musical innovators.

Violet Bell recorded Shapeshifter with Grammy-nominated producer Jason Richmond (Avett Brothers) and musical guests Libby Rodenbough and Joseph Terrell (Mipso), Tatiana Hargreaves, and Joe Troop (Che Appalache).
