      Drake Bell

      Since becoming a household name via the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, Drake Bell has evolved into a bona fide international music, television and film star. He was most recently seen paying homage to the network that launched his career as star of Nickelodeon's live-action/CG adaptation of The Fairly OddParents, "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" opposite Daniella Monet (Victorious). A new EP, featuring four new songs produced by John Fields (Jellyfish, Rooney, Jack's Mannequin, Jonas Bros) and Bleu, was released digitally on June 28, 2011. The first single, "Terrific," hit #1 on the iTunes Mexico Rock release chart and A Reminder released at #5 overall. With two other successful albums under his belt, past tour sell-outs of 3,000-8,000 seat venues, 10 U.S. and International Nickelodeon and Teen Choice Awards and the new EP on the way, 2011 will continue to be a big year for Bell in music. A huge fan of the harmonies and melodic pop-rock of the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley, as well as vinyl albums, Bell turns out to be an old soul, learning how to play guitar from none other than The Who's Roger Daltrey, with whom he worked in the 1998 movie, Changing Destiny. With the indie release Telegraph and his first major release, It's Only Time (Universal Motown 2006), Bell found himself maturing, both lyrically and musically, in part to a hectic touring schedule, including Mexico, where It's Only Time and the single, "I Know," both topped the charts. Over the last several years, Bell has gone on the road with both Ally & AJ and Corbin Bleu, regularly playing 3,000-seat venues and now plans to hit the international touring circuit. Bell's past acting credits include playing John Cusack's son in the HBO film The Jack Bull and receiving a 2000 Young Artist Award for Best Supporting Young Actor in a TV Movie or Pilot. He also had a memorable role in Jerry Maguire as the son of a hospitalized hockey player client of Tom Cruise's sports agent. Bell then went on to roles in the feature films High Fidelity and Yours, Mine and Ours, as well as on the TV series Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show, The Pretender and Home Improvement. An appearance on Nickelodeon's popular sketch comedy series, The Amanda Show, led to his starring role on Drake & Josh, which is still popular in more than 40 countries. Bell composed all the songs he played on the show including the theme, "Found a Way." Bell also starred in Superhero Movie with Leslie Nielsen and Tracy Morgan, for which he won a Teen Choice Award as Breakout Male and composed the song "Superhero Bounce," along with College. The Newport Beach, Calif.-born Bell, whose mother is two-time world champion pool player Robin Dodson, started out as a child actor, appearing in commercial and feature films when he was five, but considers music his first love. Since 2009, Bell has also supported The Thirst Project, a non-profit organization that exists to raise awareness of and bring solutions to the clean water crisis globally through educational outreach and fundraising initiatives. In 2010, Bell received their Pioneering Spirit Award.
