CONNIE BELL backed_by_Fenomeno_Show [reggae - UK/Jamaica]
Born & Rooted in Jamaica but collecting vibrations from UK & Europe, rising star CONNIE BELL is capturing the interest of the international Reggae scene and Storytelling Dub scene by storm. This songstress & poetess fuses raw, roots reggae with echoes of dub poetry and classic soul harmonies.
With a performance track record from gigs with Apples & Snakes (Britain’s leading Poetry Company funded by the Arts Council) and a recording resumé citing sessions with Lee Perry, Toots Hibbert and Mad Professor alongside the THC Muzik roster (the label responsible for Turbulence’s hit ‘Notorious’), it was only a matter of time before CONNIE BELL took the lead and established her own brand. Since moving to London in 2000, CONNIE BELL has worked with Reggae-Jungle legend Congo Natty, Saxon sound system Tenor Fly, Natty and is an official member of Roots Manuva’s Banana Klan.
Always one to impart a meaningful message with her lyrics, it wasn’t long before Connie’s conscious vapours found their way to the UK roots scene where Bush Chemist and engineer Dougie Conscious recorded her Underground hits ‘Vampire’ (Top10 of the Dub Vendor’s chart) and ‘Stop Youth Murder’ on Upsetter rhythm tracks.
The story culminates in the CONNIE BELL experience when joined by her multi-national talents band DI MAN DEM in 2010. The band boasts an impressive list of shows, such as headlining and opening for Natty, Roots Manuva, Congo Natty and performing in prestigious UK venues such as Cargo, Passing Clouds, Hootananny.
She also charismatically shapes this spoken word talent in hosting and interviewing Happenstance Radio, BBC World Today and Passing Clouds to name a few.
Since 2011, CONNIE BELL is gigging in London and touring Europe with FENOMENO SHOW in the most traditional Jamaican soundsystem style!
