Ronnie Bell – I’ll Pay The Shipping Cost

Ronnie “RnB” Bell is a church-reared independent R&B singer whose voice recalls the likes of Brian McKnight, Tank, and Jaheim. His material has alternated between contemporary commercial sounds and slower numbers more in line with deeply Southern soul-blues. Raised in Walker, Louisiana, roughly 20 miles east of Baton Rouge, Bell started singing in choirs as a youngster. During his teenage years, he performed with the family group George Perkins & the Voices of Harmony, and then with Kenneth Mitchell & the Voices of Praise. After two years of attending Delta State University, during which he played on the school’s Division II championship-winning football team, he transferred to Southern University and joined the Southern University Concert Choir. Bell also opened on-campus gigs headlined by the likes of 112 and Erykah Badu. A self-titled three-song EP was released in 2012 as Bell’s recorded solo debut. Several singles such as “Cotton Candy” followed during the next few years, and led to a longer EP, #BBMyself, in 2015. “I’ll Pay the Shipping Cost” arrived in 2016. ~ Andy Kellman
