“Nikki Talley has traveled a lot of miles these past few years and called numerous places home, but we in Western NC still want to claim her as one of the area’s finest singer-songwriters. Always genuine and down to earth, she and her partner Jason Sharp deliver her latest songs on Out From the Harbor in a beautiful, laid-back style — just in time for a beautiful, laid-back summer. “

– Martin Anderson

Snowbirds

Truly cannot complain about the weather these days. We enjoyed a great time at the Virginia Keys Grassroots Fest in Miami & will finish up February with a few more gigs in South Florida before heading back to the mountains of North Carolina. Speaking of festivals, we are looking forward to playing Suwannee Springfest at the end of March.

Took a quick break from vandwelling to work on some hotel demos as we prepare for our upcoming album in North Carolina! We are so excited to be working with Mike Ashworth (Steep Canyon Rangers, Steve Martin, Edie Brickell) at the beautiful Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheville, NC.

Please keep checking back on show dates as we’re always (happily!) adding more! Hope to see you on the road!  Love from Blue Bell. xo

Christmas came early!!


AHEM! To everyone who pledged during the kickstarter campaign, THANK YOU! This is the beautiful new van! Please keep an eye out for us in our travels. I’ve been calling her Blue Bell, while Jason insists that she is Blue Steel. Ha! Regardless, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. She is going to make touring comfortable & AWESOME!

2012 will bring BIG changes & new adventures as we, hit the road full-time! We head to SC, GA, & then hang out in Florida for a few weeks soaking up the sun. :-) Looking forward to expanding the listening audience in 2012 by traveling all over this great nation. :-)

THIS WEEK I head to Knoxville to play Sapphire then wrap up my shows for 2011 at the Altamont Theatre downtown Asheville opening for the Trishas out of Austin, Texas.

Looking forward to so much! :)
