Louise Bell expresses her deep love of many musical styles and traditions through her vibrant and soulful original compositions. Her most recent album is 'The Soul's Dream' which draws together a rich array of dreamy instrumentals, compelling rhythms, deeply personal lyrics and songs of social justice. This is a diverse journey: from gospel style harmonies through Indian-tinged trance, Turkish grooves and haunting viola and piano to swinging torch song! Reflecting her primary influences of folk, jazz, ambient and eastern styles, and infused with her background in classical piano, this album features a variety of instrumentation. Louise sings and plays piano, folk harp, clarinet and percussion, and is joined by Christine Jarczewski on viola, David Condon on drums, Mark Scotland on bass, Debby Baker on percussion and Julian Paviour on trumpet. There are also drones, Tibetan singing bowls and one track features wind-played harp. Louise released a solo CD of original compositions and improvisations on folk harp, entitled 'Troubadour d'amour', in 2006. This album also features 2 vocal chants with drone and singing bowl. From a deeply soulful place, with a passion for exploring the human condition, themes of peace and justice, and the sheer joy of weaving beautiful melody and harmony, Louise offers her music to entrance, move and uplift.
