BIOGRAPHY

 

Jonathon Bell, known by his stage name "Jonny Bell" could be categorized as one of the most versatile recording artists in the music industry.  Born in 1988, Jonny spent his childhood years growing up in Exton, Pennsylvania, a suburb located 30 minutes outside the city of Philadelphia.  At the age of 13 he started playing the electric guitar.  Legendary guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Eric Clapton were all inspirations to a young eager to learn musician.  His sound was truley defined when he started writing rap versus instead of guitar licks.

"Hip hop started for me in the back of a ford escort, rhyming to classic instrumentals and repeatedly listening to albums by Talib Kweli, Common, and Kanye West".  His true destiny is to be the next influential voice in Hip-Hop culture. Eager to produce his own music, Jonny learned how to achieve a better sound by constructing a 2-room home studio in his parents basement after he dropped out of college to pursue his true passion. 

In 2016, Jonny released his single “Stuck in Camden” as a debut recording artist.  Jonny narrates a true story of being stuck in Camden, New Jersey one night after attempting to drive his friends home.  His production on this record emphasizes the early influences of true hip-hop culture and story-telling.  The music video, filmed and edited by Philadelphia based videographer Chop Mosley premiered on Russell Simmons All Def Digital Channel.  Throughout the year of 2017 Jonny has dropped more singles to his long awaited full-length project.
