Based in North Texas, Matthew Bell & The Next of Kin is quite simply a family affair. Born out of marital luck, and bound by a drive for the creative and the authentic.
We are brothers, sons, fathers, husbands. And outside of our Creator, our families are not only the reason why we do what we do, they're the reason why we've been able to achieve any success at all.
At heart, we are storytellers, and whether the story belongs to us or to our fellow man, we strive to offer justice to both the triumph and tribulation of human experience. We must not forget that life is a journey, and we all have a tale that is worth hearing. Our desire is to share those stories with the world.
MBNOK is Matthew Bell, Daren Denniston, and Jarod Schmitt. Folk-soul with tight harmonies and emotional musicianship, and as entertaining as it is intriguing.
Welcome to the family.
