String Talks #2 – Matt Bell

Matt Bell violoniste

The episode 2 of our String Talks podcast is here! Our guest is an electric violinist that you know for sure for his videos about violins and bowed string music instruments: our friend Matt Bell.

Matt Bell is a violinist since his childhood. He grew in a music world; his mother was an organist. For many years, he is working at Electric Violin Shop, the famous American shop of electric violins. It is selling our electric violins. He is also a professional violinist playing in many bands or as a soloist on stage. You will learn his story and a lot of anecdotes in this new String Talks podcast. If you like the rock spirit, you will like it 🙂

Our first meeting with Matt was in 2017 for the NAMM Show. Since then, we met how every year at the same place (well, when it was possible to travel). Matt visited France and our place in 2019. We edited a short video. We made an Occitanie journey visiting famous places, tasting many dishes and discovering our making processes. And in 2020, we visited his North Carolin State where he is living. We did a stop after the NAMM Show to meet the Electric Violin Shop team. Laurent played with Matt and some friends for a performance in a local pub!
