Violet Bell is Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez. Based out of Durham, NC, Violet Bell weaves gypsy, blues, and soul influences with folk-rock roots.

Lizzy Ross made a name for herself with stirring original songs and “a voice like cigarettes and the smoothest whiskey you’ve ever tasted” (Stephen Markley, Chicago RedEye).  Multi-instrumentalist and composer Omar Ruiz-Lopez has toured extensively with Jonathan Byrd, Crystal Bright, Chocolate Suede, Steph Stewart & The Boyfriends, and performed several of his original compositions with the Durham Symphony Orchestra.

The duo first teamed up to record a live album in March 2016 at the Rooster’s Wife in Aberdeen, NC. Since then they’ve hit the road, playing over 200 shows and captivating audiences at venues and festivals like Ocrafolk, Rooster Walk, and Shakori Hills.

Violet Bell’s EP Dream the Wheel is set for release in Spring 2017, and they are currently recording their first full-length studio album. Whether they’re playing an intimate acoustic tune or sprawling out in psychedelic revelry, you can feel the magic.
