Turn It on Turn It Up
Nashville Rock's 2010 'Album of the Year' 'The music Kris is producing is hauntingly beautiful, soulful and leaves the listener wanting to hear more. ' - Lea Sylvester, Tuned In Music Magazine 'Starting things off with the amps cranked up is "Livin' for Tomorrow," which sets the tone for the rest of the album. "I'm livin' for tomorrow/I'm not lookin' back on yesterday/And I'm movin' forward today," Bell declares on the fast-paced opening song. From this moment on, listeners are given ample warning to expect plenty of catchy hooks, sing-a-long choruses and copious guitar solos. Throughout the record, Bell mixes modern, alternative and Southern rock to create his own American rock style. While the majority of the album is filled with up-tempo, all-out rockers, a handful of slower power ballads are sprinkled throughout as well, including, "I Know The Sun Will Call." Enhanced with a sparse but beautiful string arrangement and it's catchy chorus, the Creed-like song is one of the albums' finest and most memorable moments. ...It is a solid effort by a talented musician and composer that provides a most enjoyable listening experience for fans of rock music. So put it on, crank it up loud and sing along.' Eric Allen-Murfreesboro Pulse.
