Acton Bell is the new musical project of singer/songwriter Dez Foley.
An ex-member of indie-pop upstarts Crumb and formerly of Irish Indie stalwarts, The Sewing Room; Foley has climbed out from behind the drum kit to have a bash at recording his debut solo album, "You Don't Know What Love Is".
Helped in no small part by a heavy hitting band of players comprising John Hegarty (Dinah Brand, Let's Get Lost), Fiachra McCarthy (Pantone 247, Run On's, Crumb) and Joss Moorkens (Dudley Corporation, Large Mound, Joan of Arse); Acton Bell's debut is set for release in January 2015 on the Discques Fridge label.
Taking in strands of Rock, Pop and Folk, with an added dash of Country, the album will be available to download or buy via Bandcamp.com
