This former Nickelodeon star (of Drake & Josh fame) brings songs from his new EP on tour with him this fall.
Since becoming a household name via the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, Drake Bell has evolved into a bona fide international music, television and film star. He was most recently seen paying homage to the network that launched his career as star of Nickelodeon's live-action/CG adaptation of The Fairly OddParents, "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" opposite Daniella Monet (Victorious). A new EP, featuring four new songs produced by John Fields (Jellyfish, Rooney, Jack's Mannequin, Jonas Bros) and Bleu, was released digitally on June 28, 2011. The first single, "Terrific," hit #1 on the iTunes Mexico Rock release chart and A Reminder released at #5 overall.
With two other successful albums under his belt, past tour sell-outs of 3,000-8,000 seat venues, 10 U.S. and International Nickelodeon and Teen Choice Awards and the new EP on the way, 2011 will continue to be a big year for Bell in music. A huge fan of the harmonies and melodic pop-rock of the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley, as well as vinyl albums, Bell turns out to be an old soul, learning how to play guitar from none other than The Who's Roger Daltrey, with whom he worked in the 1998 movie, Changing Destiny.
With the indie release Telegraph and his first major release, It's Only Time (Universal Motown 2006), Bell found himself maturing, both lyrically and musically, in part to a hectic touring schedule, including Mexico, where It's Only Time and the single, "I Know," both topped the charts. Over the last several years, Bell has gone on the road with both Ally & AJ and Corbin Bleu, regularly playing 3,000-seat venues and now plans to hit the international touring circuit.
Bell's past acting credits include playing John Cusack's son in the HBO film The Jack Bull and receiving a 2000 Young Artist Award for Best Supporting Young Actor in a TV Movie or Pilot. He also had a memorable role in Jerry Maguire as the son of a hospitalized hockey player client of Tom Cruise's sports agent. Bell then went on to roles in the feature films High Fidelity and Yours, Mine and Ours, as well as on the TV series Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show, The Pretender and Home Improvement. An appearance on Nickelodeon's popular sketch comedy series, The Amanda Show, led to his starring role on Drake & Josh, which is still popular in more than 40 countries. Bell composed all the songs he played on the show including the theme, "Found a Way." Bell also starred in Superhero Movie with Leslie Nielsen and Tracy Morgan, for which he won a Teen Choice Award as Breakout Male and composed the song "Superhero Bounce," along with College.
The Newport Beach, Calif.-born Bell, whose mother is two-time world champion pool player Robin Dodson, started out as a child actor, appearing in commercial and feature films when he was five, but considers music his first love.
Since 2009, Bell has also supported The Thirst Project, a non-profit organization that exists to raise awareness of and bring solutions to the clean water crisis globally through educational outreach and fundraising initiatives. In 2010, Bell received their Pioneering Spirit Award.
TRYON is a pop duo consisting of brothers Stephen and Justin Kirk.
Growing up in Charlotte, North Carolina, both Stephen and Justin Kirk immersed themselves in many musical endeavors. From Gospel choirs and school bands, to backyard parties and music clubs, the Kirks both learned to sing and master multiple instruments. “We’d play and sing
for anyone who would listen,” recalls Justin. “To be honest, that’s something we've never grown out of.”
Having opened for national acts (Carrie Underwood - Blown Away Tour and Safety Suit), and after gaining a strong live and social media following, TRYON believes their time has come. "It's been a ton of work and a lot of time - but we've got
something to say…and we're ready for the world to hear our music!”
TRYON has teamed with Grammy award-winning songwriter Gary Baker. Baker is responsible for hits from Britney, Backstreet, and NSync, along with the classics I SWEAR and I'M ALREADY THERE.
TRYON’S debut single “Somebody To Love Me” is being played now on SiriusXM Hits-1, Radio Disney, and in major retails stores across the country including Apple, Best Buy, Staples, McDonalds, Verizon, and many others. The official impact date at POP Radio is February 29th and look for TRYON on tour this summer in a city near you!
