Original Americana from Durham

Since we hosted Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez of Violet Bell to a sold out crowd in September 2018, this amazing duo has continued to rock the Americana scene. Their newest album, Honey in My Heart, is vibrant, full of ebbing and flowing emotion; full of passion, fear, hope, angst, frustration, humor — all the messy emotions comprising the worthwhile chaos of the human experience. Stylistically, the songs take familiar Americana textures and bend them in surprising directions. The album draws from all over the spectrum, ranging from folky psychedelia to subtle jazz and experimental indie-pop. Honey in My Heart is what happens when two musicians at the top of their craft share the same sandbox.


“Ross channels the spirit of Eva Cassidy, and Ruiz-Lopez’s violin performance is chocolate... A very beautiful canvas of earthy, acoustic music, with some of the best arrangements I have heard on this show. Absolutely gorgeous."

— Michael Johnathon, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour

“Atmospheric, captivating vocals… Violet Bell puts an avant-garde twist on traditional roots music.”

— IndyWeekly


Violet Bell is back by popular demand. Join us as we hear how this exciting duo has evolved!
