The Steve Bell Projects is a singer and songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. He grew up listening to pop, soul, and funk from the 1970s and 1980s. He was a huge fan of Earth, Wind, and Fire, as well as Al Jarreau, Gino Vannelli, TOTO, George Benson, and David Foster. He preferred class music with rich melodies, which are still prominent in his own compositions today.

He played drums in several bands while in college, he did have a talent for playing the piano by ear and creating ‘sort of nice’ ballads and soul tunes. In his twenties, he worked as a pop music critic for a local arts magazine, where he interviewed renowned performers such as Kenny G, John Denver, Ray Parker Jr, Rick Astley, and Tina Arena, to name a few.

His interviews were always in-depth and focused on learning everything there was to know about outstanding songwriting and performing. He was also writing songs with local musician Lisa Roberts and having them recorded by local bands. Then he went on a 20-year hiatus. During that period, he established a commercial career and rose to the position of Managing Director of a major consulting firm. He also became a devoted and dedicated parent.

He craved for artistic endeavours, though, and after being imprisoned during the COVID crisis, he began writing again. His debut song, ‘Lonely View‘ was penned while staring out the window of his studio across the nearby harbour. As a result, he began the adventure of discovering a good singer and writing a song for them with rich melodies and highly fascinating chord structures each month.

He is an excellent songwriter and arranger. Running a professional services firm may be taxing, but then came COVID, and Melbourne, Australia was shut down for more than 100 days. Steve created several songs in between conducting zoom meetings with his team, attempting to comprehend government requirements and welcome his third kid into the world, beginning with Lonely View, a contemplative ballad about hope during the lockdown experience.

He is currently producing one “beautiful” song every month, and he promises that they will be a combination of styles from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. (He mentions the Bee Gees, Lauryn Hill, Steely Dan, EW&F, and David Foster as influences.) So get on this train and enjoy the ride.

‘Christmas Love’ is an emotional soul-style Christmas song created in honour of Steve Bell’s new kid. It was recorded with two beautiful voices from the project’s stable, Jennifer Davids and Teddy Bardwell. The Projects sound; powerful harmonies, flowing rhythms, and expressive jazzy chord progressions. The string arrangements took a lot of time and effort to create a rich tapestry with the voices. Oh, and of course, we added a few chimes to give it a Christmas feel.
