Artist bio

Blending pop sensibilities with classical chops and folk traditions, “Violet Bell puts an avant-garde twist on traditional roots music” (INDY Week) . . . Singer-songwriter Lizzy Ross “channels the spirit of Eva Cassidy,” while multi-instrumentalist Omar Ruiz-Lopez’s violin performance is “chocolate,” resulting in an undeniable onstage chemistry that captivates audiences of all ages (Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Show).

Performing as a duo or quintet, Violet Bell is equally at home in a performing arts center or an intimate listening space. The group has mesmerized audiences with its “fiery live performances” (The Boot), offering “a mashup of classical, soul, bluegrass, jazz, old-time, and blues that floats effortlessly” (Greensboro News and Record). This unique blend of skill, innovation, and joy has not gone unnoticed. In their young career, Ross and Ruiz-Lopez have been featured at festivals and events across the country, including Americanafest 2018, Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival, GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance, and the Charleston Bluegrass Festival.
