Taking the loudest elements of life and compressing them into soothing ballads of sound takes genius musical ability, a feat Brendan Bell has accomplished with grace. Raised in Boulder and based out of Denver, Colorado, this chilled out producer has been crafting phenomenal hits for years under the alias Covex. Originally diving into music with vocal and piano training at the age of 7, Bell has shaped his talents into a full spectrum of sonic creation, learning to produce at the young age of 13. Honing his skills behind the screen and blending production prowess with his natural knack for inventive melodies, the chilled out talent takes fans on an immersive journey of ethereal bliss and dreamy soundscapes.
This rising star has found a perfect niche for himself with his signature blend of melodic production and indie influence, garnering praise on hit singles like “Ordinary Lies,” “Alone,” and lending his vocal talents to re-creations of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” and Bon Iver’s “Woods.” Bell has performed alongside names like Illenium, Jauz, Slow Magic, Haywyre, Said the Sky, Crywolf and more, not to mention back-to-back performances at Denver’s Decadence festival featuring names such as Bassnectar, Odesza and Deadmau5 among others. Receiving support from the likes of Hebinomichi, Gravitas Recordings and YourEDM plus having his remix of Ember Island’s “Can’t Feel My Face” in Illenium’s Ashes to Ashes mix series, Bell has continually garnered praise across the dance music spectrum, becoming a new force in musical ingenuity.
