TWIN PEAKS Star Chrysta Bell Makes Café Carlyle Debut this November

Chrysta Bell, revered TWIN PEAKS actress and longtime musical partner of David Lynch, makes her Café Carlyle debut, November 3. Chrysta Bell received widespread critical acclaim in the role of FBI Agent Tamara Preston in 2017's return of TWIN PEAKS on SHOWTIME, acting alongside Miguel Ferrer and David Lynch. David Lynch says Chrysta Bell "is not only a killer performer, she also has a great intuitive ability to catch a mood and find a melody that's really spectacular," and recalls, "The first time I saw her perform, I thought she was like an alien. The most beautiful alien ever." This summer she released her sophomore album, We Dissolve, a pop record with elements of soul, rock and jazz, featuring contributions from guest artists including Adrian Utley (Portishead), keyboardist Geoff Downes (Asia, Yes) and drone metal guitarist Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))). The album was recorded in Bristol, UK, with Mercury Prize-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey's Let England Shake).

The performance will take place Friday, November 3 at 10:45pm. Pricing begins at $50 per person / Bar Seating: $30 / Premium Seating: $100. Reservations can be made by phone at 212.744.1600 or online via Ticketweb. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A ROSEWOOD Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

David Lynch wrote and produced Chrysta Bell's 11-song debut, This Train (2011), as well as her acclaimed 2016 EP, Somewhere in the Nowhere. Evocative of Lynch's film and teleVision Productions, both retro-tinged releases feature dark and airy musical soundscapes conjuring a dramatic atmosphere that allow Chrysta Bell's sensual vocals and soulful melodies to take flight. The closing moments of his surreal epic Inland EMPIRE featured the duo's song "Polish Poem," a classically Lynchian ballad.

Chrysta Bell's professional career as musician began after being SIGNED by RCA Victor at the age of 18 as the lead vocalist for the popular Austin-based gypsy swing act 8 ½ Souvenirs. In her four-year tenure with the band, Chrysta Bell delighted audiences on many North American tours and shared the stage with legendary musicians such as Willie Nelson and Brian Setzer.

About Café Carlyle at The Carlyle, A ROSEWOOD Hotel

Originally opened in 1955, Café Carlyle is New York City's bastion of classic cabaret entertainment, a place where audiences experience exceptional performers at close range in an exceedingly elegant setting. Since composer Richard Rodgers moved in as The Carlyle's first tenant, music has been an essential part of The Carlyle experience. No place is that more evident than in the Café Carlyle.

Café Carlyle is known for talents including Woody Allen, who regularly appears on Monday evenings to play with thE Eddy Davis New Orleans jazz band. For three decades, Café Carlyle was synonymous with the legendary Bobby Short, who thrilled sell-out crowds for 36 years. His spirit lives on through the music at Café Carlyle.

Continuing the tradition of the 1930s supper club, Café Carlyle features original murals created by French artist Marcel Vertès, the Oscar-winning art director of the 1952 Moulin Rouge.

American Airlines in-flight magazine, American Way, recently included Café Carlyle within their 2017 Platinum List as one of the Top 3 Music Venues in the World.
