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.
Christmas came early for us! We are done tracking the new record & will go back and mix after the holidays. It was a gorgeous experience & we are very proud of our hard work (4 12hr days!) Can’t wait to share it with you. Hope all is merry & bright, Nikki & Jason
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.
Check it out! We recently were approached by Emily & Corey of Where’s My Office Now & a film crew making a docmentary about folks who work & live out of their vehicle full time. Stay tuned for our episode & enjoy some pics below of the shoot:
Thanks to everyone who has donated thus far to our Kickstarter project for a new album! It has put us over the line in just 20 days! There’s still plenty of time to back our project. Any extra money will go right back into the album as there’s always unexpected costs. Consider pledging, as even a small donation will get you a pre-order of the new CD! Thanks! Click here to donate.
WE CAN’T STAND IT ANYMORE!
We are ecstatic to announce that we’re starting a Kickstarter campaign to fund our next record!!! This campaign ends in 30 DAYS & it’s an all or nothing deal so please spread the good word.
Please watch the video, and share with as many folks as you can. This crowd funding platform is the ONLY way we can make a new record. We have written so much new material and are hoping we reach our goal! That’s up to you!
Rounding out September with two really great shows in Jacksonville, FL starting with Thursday night at the Mudville Music Room presented by Ray Lewis who has created such a great space! Saturday we head down to the bustling Riverside Arts Market.
October marks a busy fun time of year for us always. We kick off with our first appearance on WUWF’s Radio Live. You can come down to the live audience or tune in live from afar!
Continuing our fun in Pensacola, we will be part of the Greater Good Festival.
Speaking of festivals, we return to the always magical Magnolia Fest in Live Oak on the Suwannee River. We are thrilled to be playing Friday at noon on the amphitheater stage with the TRIO! That’s right, Jason & I will be joined once again by longtime collaborating songbird Miss Ashleigh Caudill on upright bass and harmonies.
Please check our shows page for updates on where Blue Bell will be driving to next. See you out there on the road! XO-Nikki & Jason
HAPPY AUGUST! It’s both Jason & my birthday month & nothing could make us happier than being in our beloved mountains after a SUPERB 2 month run from Jacksonville FL to Boston Mass. WE are turning BLUE BELL SOUTH! Hope to see you while we’re back. Home again home again giggity GIG:
