Performance and recording artist Chrysta Bell will incorporate dynamic theatrical and multimedia elements into her show at Brighton Dome on Saturday, April 12.

A Texas native singer-songwriter who has shared the stage with Brian Setzer, Willie Nelson and Donovan, Bell began collaborating with David Lynch in 2000. Lynch’s surreal epic Inland Empire saw the use of the duo’s song Polish Poem, spotlighted in the film’s closing moments.

Spokesman Chris Challis said: “Building on their powerful chemistry, the pair reunited in 2012 for Bell’s debut This Train.

Released on La Rose Noire, the 11-song album was produced and written by Lynch.

“Evocative of Lynch’s film and television productions — as well as his recent solo debut Crazy Clown Time — the album’s dark and airy musical soundscapes conjure a dramatic atmosphere that allows Bell’s breathy inflections and soulful melodies to truly take flight.

“Her fiery, multimedia performances around the world have forged true believers in Paris, Rome, Shanghai, Montreal and Austin, Texas, which is not far from her hometown San Antonio.

“Raised there by her mother, a professional vocalist, and her stepfather, who owned a local recording studio, Bell was singing jingles by the time she was 11 and doing musical theatre at 13.”
