"Chrysta Bell looks like a dream and Chrysta Bell sings like a dream. And the dream is coming true." — David Lynch
Chrysta Bell is a performing artist, recording artist, and actress who incorporates dynamic theatrical and multimedia elements into unforgettable performance experiences.

"... dreamy and torrid, smokey and tortured... performed with grinding finesse..." — Rolling Stone
"... a muse of higher order, a cool siren with a stunning voice of rare dramatic power and range." — Irish Times
"... rhythms are designed to ensnare, and Bell's voice always sounds as if it's emerging from smoke." — LA Times
"... comparisons with Portishead and Massive Attack could certainly be drawn. The dark and fiery guise of Lana Del Rey also came to mind. However, it became evident last night that Bell’s on-stage persona propels her to another level entirely." — The Upcoming (London. Bush Hall)
