Sandi Bell was born to be a singer. Born in Rhode Island, Sandi grew up moving about the country, living in Minnesota, Kentucky, Alabama and California, learning to adapt to making new friends and cultures at each destination. Sandi occasionally kids that she has lived North, South, East and West. An only child, and often alone, Sandi spent hours with old 45's that belonged to both her and her parents. The music and singing could be heard coming from her bedroom and throughout the house since ever since her parents could remember. On occasion you could find Sandi assembling her playmates fully clad in white bed sheets for robes singing Amazing Grace and performing to just about anyone who wanted to listen. Emulating the cartoon bands of the time or humming tunes on the couch while watching TV before bed was a common occurrence.
Sandi started playing Cello at the age of seven in the school orchestra. Her mother was a weekend piano player who liked to improvise. Her parents were divorced when Sandi was 9 years old. Sandi and her mother moved from Alabama to California. Because her mother had to work to support the family, Sandi was on her own most of the time before and after school. She found her port in the storm by singing to records every chance she got. By high school graduation, Sandi was playing piano and guitar herself and her mind was made up to become a singer. Singing multiple Barbra Streisand records each morning before and after school, Sandi became a self taught singer.
In her early twenty's, Sandi hit the road with a few successful top 40 bands, living in hotel rooms on the road months out of each year. The stage became a place of familiarity and of identity for her. She pursued singing many genres during that time. She found the styles of the artists and captured the essence of their voices. Sandi's long career in entertainment features a few career highlights includes a fundraiser for the Parasol Foundation with some of the top music industry professionals, including Michael Bolton, Pat Boone, Stu Cook from Creedence Clearwater Revival, a fundraiser for Joni and Friends, a national organization that helps reach out to people affected by disability, opening for Air Supply at the Cherry Festival in 2010 in Southern California, as well as sharing the stage with along with Alan Parsons in 2012.
After many years of doing main stream cover music and becoming less and less interested in doing what everyone else was doing, Sandi, an avid horsewoman, fell in love with new and old Country Music at her ranch and felt a calling to change her musical direction in 2010. Patriotic and good old down home American life music heads up her favorites along with performing her original Country style music. She is now the founder of her own label, RSVP RECORDS, with its first release, The Time Has Come, a five song EP. Co-produced with husband Mike Bell who plays piano, keyboards, guitar and background vocals, along with the co-production talent of Randy Knaub of Jireh Productions in engineering and mixing.
My Birthday Party Rocked
Sandi played at my 50th Birthday party. Having a great live band made my event very special. My guests danced and really enjoyed the music. I have received nothing but compliments from all who were there.
I hope to have Sandi play for my next party.
Joni and Friends Family Retreats
We had Sandi sing for our families as they enjoyed some time relaxing outside and played games on the lawn. They loved Sandi's fun playlist and her interaction with the kids. At one point, she got them up on the stage and handed them instruments so they could play along. Great music, great people, great fun!
