Press Quotes…

“We think the album shows great promise and wish you all the best success for the future” – Lauren Gregory (PA to Bryan Ferry)

“Ian Bel’s “Teenage Vision” is a great blast of jittery pop. Bel sings it in a nervous Bryan Ferry voice and the pounding piano musical bed brings Roxy Music’s glory days immediately to mind. Adam Lambert may be American Idol’s sham version of glam music, but Ian Bel is the real deal!” Dan MaciIntosh – http://www.indie-music.com

“Artists like Ian Bel don’t come around everyday. He has an incredible voice with suitably impressive music.  Combining the two has resulted in some truly epic music!” – Dave Brady, Epic Radio Director – Epic Radio – http://www.epicradio.net


Short Biography…

The man behind the name grew up on a tiny farm not far from Oslo, Norway’s capital and claims to have begun making music “at the height of 100 cm”.

Ian was heavily influenced by a classical pianist mother and folk musician father and by the sounds of a distant relative – legendary Norwegian violinist and composer Ole Bull – echoing down the family bloodline.

Ian sang in a choir, excelled on the piano and guitar – and proved that violin virtuosity is not a genetic certainty – before forming a number of bands during the 90s. In 1997 he cut his first independent album, the gothic Mr Government. Six years later he founded UNO Record Company as a small indie label.

He has also composed theme music for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation nation and written a humorous children’s book Martha Martha. His many live performances include a 2008 charity concert for Africa inspired by the UN Millennium Development goals.

Ian’s latest production is Fake Factory, a concept album based on a self-penned book about the media industry, is available NOW.
