Sublime Vocal Arrangements

Jen David’s is an amazing vocalist. Working with her was a joy and a privilege. Finding talent and modesty all wrapped in one isn’t easy.

“After the Melbourne lockdown (over 100 days) I found this amazing singer Jennifer David’s. She respected that I was a guy trying to transpose eighties music into the twenties. “

“Her interpretation of what I was trying to do was extraordinary and I am just fortunate she was the first artist to come my way.”

‘Interestingly I had written the song, looking out over Melbourne’s bay, with the intention it be translated into Korean. There is this adult contemporary singer Park Ji Yoon who I visualised singing it. However, I couldn’t be happier about how it turned out.’

‘Of course, I was always wondering how the magnificent David Foster would tackle such a piece. He has really given me something to aim for’

Steve Bell, Composer Arranger

Published by thestevebellprojects

Steve Bell will tell you that he is a guy who remembered he could write songs twenty years after the last one he wrote. But really, he is a very competent songwriter/arranger. Running a professional services company can be very demanding, but then came COVID and Melbourne, Australia got locked down for over 100 days. In between running zoom meetings with his team, trying to understand government guidelines and welcoming his third child into the world, Steve wrote some songs starting with Lonely View and Another Point of View, one a meditative ballad and about being locked away whilst looking out over a beautiful bay and the other a ‘really funky something’. He is aiming for one song a month and insists they will be a mixture of seventies, eighties and nineties type of genres. (He murmurs something about Bee Gees, Lauryn Hill, Steely Dan, EW&F and David Foster being an influence) So here are some songs folks.❤️
