Ross channels the spirit of Eva Cassidy, and Ruiz-Lopez’s violin performance is chocolate… A very beautiful canvas of earthy, acoustic music, with some of the best arrangements I have heard on this show. Absolutely gorgeous.

Durham-based Violet Bell weaves original Americana from folk, soul, and bluegrass music. Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez draw inspiration from the natural world, ancient mythology and the Piedmont’s green hills.The duo honed their strong onstage chemistry playing hundreds of shows from Montreal to Miami, since forming in 2016. Performing as a duo or quintet, Violet Bell are equally at home in a performing arts center or an intimate listening space. They have mesmerized audiences across America with their “fiery live performances” (The Boot), offering “a mashup of classical, soul, bluegrass, jazz, old-time and blues that floats effortlessly” (Greensboro News & Record).
We’re turning three this year, and we have our first full-length album, Honey in My Heart, to show for it! The music’s all made (live in single takes, if you don’t mind us saying so) and for now, we’re at home working on album release details. It takes just about as much work to release albums as it does to make them, and we hope it’s half as much fun. We will let you know ASAP when and where that album’s gonna drop! Thank you to all our friends and fan-ily who keep showing up for the music. We couldn’t do this without you! — Love from Lizzy & Omar , aka Violet Bell
