Artist discography


Los Angeles based actor/artist Drake Bell is most known for his roles in TV series like Drake and Josh and The Fairly Odd Parents plus he had a role in the 1998 movie Changing Destiny that also featured Roger Daltrey of The Who. Drake´s first album is the independent release "Telegraph" and then he signed with Universal/Motown for the release of his major label debut "It´s only time" in 2006. This is a well produced pop/rock album in the same vein as Ronan Keating, Billy Joel and Busted. We´re talking piano driven and sunny pop where songs like "I know" and "Do what you want" really puts a big smile on my face, the more rocking "Rusted silhouette" bring thoughts to Jacks Mannequin while the cool "End it good" sounds like a mix of Queen and Elvis Presley. A real nice album. Drake released the EP "A reminder" in 2011 which is produced by John Fields.

I'm stunned that the review doesn't mention the incredibly obvious Jellyfish influence that Drake exhibits on this album. One would think that Mr. Bell listened to nothing but Jellyfish's "Spilt Milk" while putting this album together. The vocal phrasing, harmonies, and production are straight out of the Andy Sturmer playbook. This is both good and band, as Bell has the chops to pull off such a sound, but the similarities are so pronounced as to become a distraction.
