Luke Bell, a rising talent in country music, died at the age of 32 after going missing, according to reports, for more than a week. The “heartbreaking” news was confirmed by Bell’s pal and fellow country musician Matt Kinman to the music portal Saving Country Music.
Bell was found dead in Tucson, Arizona, yesterday, not far from where he had been reported missing on August 20, according to the Tucson Police Department. Bell was born in Kentucky and reared in Wyoming.
A representative for the Pima County Medical Examiner and Coroner declined to provide any further information on Bell’s demise.
Kinman and Bell, who apparently suffered from bipolar disorder, recently worked together for performances and livestreams, according to Saving Country Music. Bell fled from Tucson as Kinman went to get something to eat.
“We travelled to Arizona to work and perform music, but he simply went gone. He was in the truck’s bed, the source was informed. “I entered to purchase a meal. When I emerged, he had already exited the truck and was gone.
Bell was born on January 27, 1990, and is a native of Cody, Wyoming. He began his musical career in Austin, Texas, playing a number of shows in the state’s capital. For his music, he went to Nashville and New Orleans.
He appeared at the Stagecoach country music festival in Indio, California, the same year he published a self-titled, 10-song album. He already discussed his beginnings and musical philosophy with The Times.
He claimed, “I was listening to artists like John Prine, and after spending a few years in Austin, I got into the Texas Tornadoes and that culture. I next travelled to New Orleans. I barely spent around six months there. I was residing in a mouldy trailer in the Lower Ninth Ward that smelled like chlorine. It was difficult.
Bell claimed he was “sort of alone,” but he was also “just trying to get my songs better and better.” His last tune, an acoustic rendition of John
Bell’s fellow country performers paid him respect on social media after his passing.
“The man made an impression, as did his music. On that abandoned route, he was a genuine roaming troubadour, the band Mike and the Moonpies wrote in a Facebook post on Monday. “In honour of Luke Bell, do yourself a favour and listen to some music tonight. Peace be with you, buddy.
Jamie Wyatt, a country artist, described Bell’s voice as “pure gold.”
She said on Tuesday: “We enjoyed one other’s music and would visit whenever we saw each other and meet up in nashville. I wasn’t as close with him as many others who are struggling right now, but we did.” “We used to speak about life when he sometimes called. Those were chats I’ll never forget.
