Bryce Bell's Biography

Originally from the Minneapolis area, Bryce was attracted to the piano at an early age. He took up formal lessons, but began to play by ear as well. Some valuable musical experiences were had with the church. He was playing at functions there by the time he was five. In addition to the piano, he took lessons in pipe organ, but later on, it was the B3 that really caught his attention.

Classically trained, he studied at the Conservatory of Music at Wheaton, near Chicago. It was there also that his interest in technology in music grew further. He found himself getting more and more involved in recording and programming.

These days, based out of Nashville, Bryce tours worldwide, as well as being involved in recording and production. He has worked with numerous artists, including Grammy- and Dove Award winners, Petra and Rebecca St. James.

He has performed all over the U.S. and in more than 20 other countries. In 2000, Bryce was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame with Petra. The following year, the band won a Grammy Award for its album, Double Take. The band has career sales of over seven million albums.

Bryce took a step into the world of theatrical music with the Dove-Award winning, "!HERO: The Rock Opera" – a dramatic experience complete with a full cast, dancers, video, and a live band. The production toured to sold-out crowds and garnered critical acclaim, culminating in the making of a live DVD.

The year 2005 saw Bryce begin creating music for picture, with some work in film scoring, as well as having a catalog of songs published for television use.

Whether on stage or in the studio, his Yamaha S90 and P200 are kept very busy.
