Danny Bell

And His Disappointments

Danny Bell is a musician and singer-songwriter originally from Red Wing, Minnesota.  Now he calls Prince George, BC home.  Danny's songs are pure & simple, sweeping superfluity off of the table so we can stay near the filthy ground and celebrate what's real.  

"Danny Bell's lyrics are so real they are irrefutable, undeniable, so honest and powerful and touching."

- Scott Dunbar

Danny gives us tunes about the pulp and paper industry and the pretentiousness of white collar life.
— Roots Music Canada

You will find these tracks remind you of the good times, and the friends that help you through the rough times.
