The chanteuse Chrysta Bell and BellaSun have released their dual singles, “In My Life” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.” Both prominently feature the work of Chrysta Bell’s mother, Sunny Markham, and that of Austin producer and guitarist David Rosenblad. The tracks have been published on the Thirteenth Moon Studio independent record label. Sonorous, heartfelt and remarkably performed, “In My Life” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” by Chrysta Bell and BellaSun are singles any fan of great music can get behind.


Asked to give some artistic influences for “In My Life” and “Swing Low…,” they cite the Beatles, Goldfrapp, RadioHead, Kate Bush, Miles Davis, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Brian Eno among others. That the Beatles appear first makes sense, as “In My Life” was originally penned by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The rest of the short roster gives a clear view on the overall tone and feel for the production of both songs, which is subtly blue, yet uplifting in its unmistakable humanity.

The result is a chimera of feeling which manages to be full of joy and suggestive of sorrow at once, giving access to most of the emotional spectrum in just under seven minutes of music – a singular achievement in any art medium.


Chrysta Bell has been described as a “vocal enchantress, actress and lover of all things moody, sensual and sophisticated.” She is internationally noted for her music collabs with legendary filmmaker David Lynch. Chrysta Bell is expected to reach millions of new eyes and ears with her upcoming appearance in the new, anxiously awaited season of Lynch’s “Twin Peaks.”

Sunny Markham, Chrysta Bell’s mother, provides stunning vocal accompaniment on both tracks and proves herself a star in her own right by giving a tender, genuine performance reminiscent of the folk titan, Joan Baez.

David Rosenblad is a music producer, multi-instrumentalist and sound designer. His company is Sir Reel Sound and he spends most of his time when not on the road working out of his south-Austin studio, Thirteenth Moon. Rosenblad has worked and/or played with artists ranging from David Newman to Sara Hickman, from Cheap Trick to Bad Company, and a great many more.


“In My Life” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” by Chrysta Bell and BellaSun is available online worldwide at over 700 digital music stores now. Get in early, fans of great singers everywhere.
