From a coal-mining village in Yorkshire England, Jan Bell made her name as a songwriter

in NYC. She has seven critically acclaimed albums made in New Orleans, Eureka Springs AR
and Brooklyn NYC. Her band “The Maybelles” who started out in The Ozarks as a duo with
Melissa Carper.

Independent Music Award winner for Best Alt. Country album ‘Songs for Love Drunk Sinners’;
and Concept album ‘Dream of the Miner’s Child’ dedicated to her grandfather.
Opening for Wanda Jackson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Odetta, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.
“Maybe growing up in Nottinghamshire is what sets Jan Bell apart from the run of local lady
folkies. Or maybe its the slide guitars, harmonicas, mandolins and banjos. Dark, old timey
spareness……gorgeous ” – Chuck Eddy, The Village Voice
“Bell’s music isn’t strictly bluegrass, but her reworking of old-time country and jug-band
blues is remarkably nuanced. It embodies the wide-open spirit of what has become an antic,
hybrid genre.” – Edd Hurt, The Nashville Scene
“Up tempo, soulful country songs.” – Hank Schteamer, Time Out NY
