The Art of Sound Unplugged Series Kicks Off In March With Frank Bell
(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) --Becoming known as one of Lambertville’s leading, underground cultural supporters, The Art of Sound has announced their latest entertainment offering “The Art of Sound Unplugged”, a springtime performing artist celebration series. This latest series will launch on Thursday, March 8th with international recording artist, Frank Bell who routinely escapes to the Delaware River region for new song-writing inspiration.
The Art of Sound’s on-going cultural mission is to proudly curate a thoughtful variety of artistic experiences for clientele and the public. Starting at 7:00pm with a complimentary mix of refreshments and light fare, guests can expect an exchange of original artist stories and songs as well as select instruments, all creatively leading patrons through the artist’s journey and process.
A limited number of seats are exclusively saved for clientele then approximately 20 seats are released to the general-public one-month prior, ensuring an intimate experience for both artist and patron. Reservations can be made by calling the Art of Sound studio at 609.483.5000 and is located at 201 South Main Street, Lambertville, NJ 08530.
Originally a classically-trained cellist, Frank Bell later expanded his instrumental arsenal as a way to further express himself as an artist. As an outlet, Frank began posting videos of his songs on YouTube, which brought him international attention and 800,000 video views (in four days) after being featured on their homepage. Shortly after, he flew to Canada to record his debut EP ‘On Passion and Reason’, a folky, neo-soul acoustic rock album which would later be released independently worldwide with famed Producer Bill Bell (Tom Cochrane, Jason Mraz, and more).
In 2010 Frank was named the HATCH GROUNDBREAKING Musician (HATCHexperience.com), where he recorded a song with Matt Morris (Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera) on an original track aboard the John Lennon Tour Bus. Recent appearances on MTV, at the Sundance Film Festival, a Times Square NYE Concert, IdeaJam moderated by Ashton Kutcher, and Sold-out shows in Europe, continue to grow Frank’s awareness and fan base.

Frank is also in tune with global needs. March of 2010, Frank could be seen on CNN, ABC World News with Dianne Sawyer, and other international news outlets, for a “We are the World” collaboration he participated in to aid Haiti relief efforts. In March of 2011 Frank led multiple ventures for Japan Tsunami Relief. He continues to work closely with non-profits and other charitable organizations as his career progresses, believing fully in social responsibilities and helping to raise awareness of what’s going on in the world.
Since August of 2010, Frank found himself back and forth Bozeman, MT, where he teamed up with Producer, Deej Hofer to begin recording the highly anticipated full length LP “Everything Falls Into Place”, which was released October 11, 2011.
In March of 2014, Frank was announced as the official Music Brand Ambassador for Skype which since has led to his participation on a panel at TED 2014 with fellow artist Amanda Palmer, and Imogen Heap.
In the following years, Frank turned his focus inwards, stripping down his sound and rediscovering the foundation of his passion: connecting with people through song. Spending extended periods of time in NYC, Boston, and at sea, Frank has been hard at work listening, building relationships, and refining his voice to speak to an increasingly diverse and disparate community. Always a heartfelt, insightful lyricist, his next big challenge is finding the words to match the world we live in today.

Pat DiNizio: In His Own Words
We’ve lost many rockers in recent years, but Pat was one of us. When I first heard about his passing, I instantly recalled one special night at The Strand in Lakewood. DiNizio was part of a Backstage Pass show (one that turns the theater into a listening room with the audience sitting on the stage with the artist) in which Pat played a few songs and shared stories about his life. He was very introspective that night and might have given us a special New Jersey version of his old Las Vegas show “Confessions of a Rock Star.” These were stories about growing up in New Jersey, raising a daughter after a divorce, first successes with the band, and the moment he realized he wanted to play rock and roll for the rest of his life. The show was broadcast live on our internet radio station and after searching through old hard drives, the recording was found. What follows is one night with Pat DiNizio in his own words…
