Kaylee Bell announces new single Getting Closer



Kaylee Bell is delighted to release her latest country-pop infused single, Getting Closer – a must-listen for those long roadtrips over summer.

An empowering anthem, Getting Closer is instantly relatable for anyone who has felt trapped in a toxic relationship. The open honest lyrics speak of the importance of relying on your friends to tell you when something isn’t right, and know they have your best interests at heart.

Getting Closer was written in Nashville with her good friend and fellow country artist Morgan Evans and produced by Lindsay Rimes, who most recently had a Billboard #1 charting single with LOCASH.

Already making a name for herself Kaylee Bell has won Best Female Artist at the National Country Music Awards in 2013, and the Tui for Best Country Music Album in 2014. It’s not just New Zealand where Kaylee has been making waves, enjoying twelve Top 10 Singles on the Australian Country Music Radio Charts as both a performer and songwriter, three of which went to #1.

A prolific live performer, Kaylee has played at some of world’s biggest festivals including three appearances at CMC Rocks, in Nashville at both the Global Artist Showcase and the famous Bluebird Café, and shared stages with the likes of Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Keith Urban – including joining Keith to perform a duet each night on his last Australian tour.

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
