GREER BELL

Greer Bell has been in and out of the music scene since she first began singing in 2006. She spent her first few years performing with 2 local bands in and around Cape Town before slowly breaking out on her own and opening for a range of acts, which included Cofield Mundi and Wendy Oldfield.

According to her mother, she began singing from an early age (while being breastfed ☺) and was noted at school for her talent for dancing and writing exceptional poetry from the age of 6. Along with her love of the arts, Greer has a strong heart for mercy and justice and an ongoing desire to actively effect change in the world. Leaving the music scene in 2009, she went on an outreach to Malawi, Mocambique and Zimbabwe, where she worked predominantly with orphans and at risk children.

“I’ve always been very protective, particularly of those who cannot or are too afraid to speak for themselves...I generally gravitate towards children and animals before adults!” She then went on to work in the counter human trafficking field until finally being encouraged by her husband to take a break in 2012, complete her degree and get back to writing and composing. In mid-2012 she began work on her debut album, “Fire Lily”, which showcases a variety of styles including folk pop, acoustic rock, cinematic ballads and celtic folk. Her trademark refreshing honesty and vulnerability lace every note, but added to that is her matured vocal and song-writing ability. “Fire Lily” offers an exquisite blend of unveiled emotion with musical finesse. Greer has also maintained her connection to the counter human trafficking field by organizing “Jams for Justice”, a movement focused on harnessing the power of the arts to raise funds and awareness for counter human trafficking efforts in South Africa.
