Chrysta Bell returns to her home state of Texas to complete her most nuanced, emotional and personal release to date. “There’s something about the infinite skies of Texas that make me feel like anything is possible,” she muses. Her eponymous new 4- song EP, Chrysta Bell, is about being courted by a lover from the Great Beyond(Blue Rose), being compelled into deep and tumultuous waters of passionate relationships(Undertow and 52 Hz) and feeling overcome by the brutality and elation of it all(Everest).
The EP was produced by her long time musical collaborator, band mate and fellow Texas native Christopher Smart, with the exception of “Undertow”, produced by celebrated composer, producer and engineer, Alex Silva(Suede, Manic Street Preachers, Imogen Heap). Chrysta Bell retains the sensual and ethereal qualities of her 2 albums with David Lynch. It also continues on the trajectory of the elegant and artful pop of We Dissolve, her 2017 release produced by John Parish.
The EP was recorded in February of 2018 at Ice Cream Factory Studios in Austin, Texas, by engineer Matt Parmenter and mastered by grammy-award winning engineer, Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound.
