Born in Moscow and raised in Alaska, Olga Bell is an American composer, producer and performer based in Brooklyn. At home in a wide range of musical settings, Bell has worked with composers Osvaldo Golijov and Philip Glass, soprano Dawn Upshaw, the rap group Das Racist, members of the St. Petersburg, Tokyo, and Juilliard string quartets, and the artist Zachary Lieberman. Bell's output includes full-length Diamonite (2011), a six-track EP (2008) and numerous singles, covers, remixes and videos. She is a current member of Dirty Projectors and a former member of Chairlift.
Both live and on record Bell’s performances have landed consistent critical acclaim and wildly varied accounts: “a powerful advocate”—The New York Times; “lustrous”—Consequence of Sound; "a three-piece electronic face-punch”—Ninjatronics.
