Chrysta Bell, Twin Peaks actress and longtime musical partner of David Lynch, returns for the "Feels Like Love Tour".
She recently sold out New York’s legendary cabaret spot, Café Carlyle. Earlier this fall, she released a new track titled “Undertow” via AWAL/Kobalt Music Recordings. The track was co-written by Chrysta Bell and Christopher Smart and produced, recorded and mixed by Alex Silva (Manic Street Preachers, Suede, Nelly Furtado).
She received widespread critical acclaim in the role of FBI Agent Tamara Preston in 2017’s return of Twin Peaks on SHOWTIME. This summer she released her sophomore album, We Dissolve, a pop record with elements of soul, rock and jazz, featuring contributions from guest artists including Adrian Utley (Portishead), keyboardist Geoff Downes (Asia, Yes) and drone metal guitarist Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))). The album was recorded in Bristol, UK, with Mercury Prize-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake).
"Her sensual, ethereal performing style resonates with [David Lynch]'s knack for blending yearning, ethereal soundscapes with trippy pop and 1950s-style guitar twang. It’s like a nightclub act from a shadow dimension, one that’s glamorous and sexy but also on the cusp of cosmic chaos." – Wall Street Journal
"Eclectic and exciting... Poised and enigmatic... [David] Lynch couldn’t have written her story better himself." – Billboard
"Chrysta Bell is the most rapturous embodiment of Lynch’s surrealism, guiding us beyond the physical world to an elevated state where fear and love are equally welcome and death is a journey you’re excited to take. Her show is the best thing I've seen at The Carlyle, transforming the space into the kind of haunt I never want to leave." – Theater Pizzazz

Described as “Scotlands best kept secret” SEIL LIEN signed a publishing deal with Ninja Tune leading to an incredible launch into the UK consciousness with her first single, A Little While More, from the debut EP of the same name, being featured on Boots No7 cosmetics campaign, SEIL LIEN has been creeping into the radar of BBC2 Johnnie Walker Show and Ones to Watch on Planet Rock. Bloggers and national press have also caught on to the intensity hailing SEIL LIEN as an “an exceptional talent, with range and depth that will make a full length album something to behold”.

"This is an impressive debut and if you like your music dark, intense and stormy, SEIL LIEN could just be your favourite new artist." Right Chord Music
"Scottish frontwoman takes her brooding cues from Nick Cave on this expansive new release"
You could argue that she is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets ..... ..It’s down and dirty swamp rock that’s a little bit Bad Seeds, a little bit White Stripes, and should be on a David Lynch movie soundtrackScots Whay Hae!
