Writer, Violinist, Designer, M.C. And Host. Bell is not exaggerating when she proclaims herself as a mogul. Growing up in St. Louis, MO, she was greatly influenced by music. Her mother is the seasoned pianist and teacher and her father is a guitarist, producer and film maker. It was innate for her to develop a love for music. Starting off in the church Bell directed the choir, wrote songs and sung many solos. At school she excelled in writing and art and began to take violin lessons when she was 9. Continuing her musical journey she won many contests and joined the youth chamber orchestra(an all black youth orchestra). Some of her fondest moments were with her mom and dad all playing their instruments in their living room. Unfortunately her parents split up and they moved to the “hood”. It was an easy adjustment for her because she's always been able to easily make friends and adapt to new situations. She continued to be instrumental in music and art and began to add more soul to her poems and spit them with a hip hop feel. After graduating from high school she went on to college. While attending school in California the atmosphere just added to her diversity and made her a better musician. Returning to St. Louis she began to teach after school programs and founded a weekly talent showcase called Mic Check Mondays. Self expression is her most valued outlet, whether through music and lyrics or writing articles for Delux Magazine. Her debut album “Saved by Da Bell” and clothing line “Forever Fly” will be released March 2011. You can check her out on twitter @msbell17 or Facebook-Bell Darris www.delux-mag.com
