Bel Thomson is an award-winning Australian Christian singer, songwriter, and speaker whose ministry takes her across the country to conferences, women's ministry and outreach events, schools, camps, and Christian Churches of all denominations.
Bel's 4th album "Seasons" was released in February 2018 and was recorded in Nashville, USA during 2017. Bel once again teamed up with Grammy-nominated producer Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Amy Grant, Rend Collective, Casting Crowns and Kari Jobe) to produce this exciting new project, building on the success of Bel’s last release, "A New Creation".
The title track from Bel’s 3rd album “A New Creation” touched many hearts with its theme of grace – (featuring Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Paul Colman, formerly in the Newsboys). On release, this song was in the top 30 songs on Christian radio in Australia for 21 weeks straight, and was picked up by churches across the country to use in their worship services. Bel is currently writing new songs and is spreading her message of encouragement across Australia and beyond.
Bel's ability to share the stories behind the songs in an authentic and stirring manner sets her apart in the realm of singer songwriters. Increasingly, Bel is invited to share as a speaker at conferences and events, where her stories and presence draws audiences to connect with her message and songs of hope. Her lyrics press beyond the surface, in a unique music ministry that weaves songs with real life tales of God's faithfulness.
Bel is married to Phil Thomson, and they have a young son, Michael and a baby Abigail, who come to most gigs, winning hearts all round with their smiles and cuddles! Bel and Phil have toured extensively, and love working together as a family.
Bel has performed at churches and conferences around Australia and New Zealand, including the Qld Baptist State Conference, Victorious Women’s Conference, Qld Churches of Christ AGM, Season's Women's Conference, QLD Baptist Women's Conference, NSW State Ministers Awakening, Easterfest, Parachute Festival NZ and World Youth Day. Along with doing frequent ministry tours in Australia, Bel and Phil remain active members at their local church in Brisbane Australia, where Bel has led worship for over 10 years.
Bel has spent many years honing her skills as a musician and writer, growing deep roots of faith along the way- which is clearly reflected in her passionate lyrics. Her first CD was released in 2004, after graduating from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. This EP won several awards, and the young songwriter began turning industry heads. Bel’s song "Psalm" took out first place in the 2004 National Australian Songwriting Competition, and in due time her follow-up albums "Bird's Eye View" (2006) and "You are my Destination" (2009) went on to receive similar awards and radio airplay in Australia. These three projects were originally released under her maiden name "Bel Morrison".
Bel's 3rd album "A New Creation" (2014) was a dream come true for Bel, recorded with GMA Dove Award winning and Grammy-nominated producer Ed Cash in Nashville, USA, receiving widespread attention across Australia.
Bel Thomson is carving a trail of encouragement across Australia, and is committed to the lifelong journey of serving God, using the gifts He’s given. With a passion for ministry, each of her songs has a story and shares a genuine message of faith, flowing from the soul of this Australian singer-songwriter.
