Drake Bell is an American actor, comedian, guitarist, singer/songwriter, producer, and occasional television director. After beginning his career as a child star in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he appeared on The Amanda Show and became well-known among young audiences for his role on the series Drake & Josh. As of 2010, Drake Bell remains one of Nickelodeon's most popular stars ever and has won nine Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards. His latest role is the live-action Timmy Turner in the TV film A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! shown on July 9, 2011. Bell is commonly associated with his real-life friend Josh Peck, who co-starred with him in The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh.

In addition to acting, Bell has a growing career as a musician, and co-wrote and performed the theme song to Drake & Josh, entitled "Found a Way". In 2005 he independently released his debut album, Telegraph. His second album, It's Only Time, was released in 2006 after signing with Universal Motown.

With the indie release Telegraph and his first major release, It's Only Time (Universal Motown 2006), Bell found himself maturing, both lyrically and musically, in part to a hectic touring schedule, including Mexico, where It's Only Time and the single, "I Know," both topped the charts. Over the last several years, Bell has gone on the road with both Ally & AJ and Corbin Bleu, regularly playing 3,000-seat venues and now plans to hit the international touring circuit.

Since 2009, Bell has also supported The Thirst Project, a non-profit organization that exists to raise awareness of and bring solutions to the clean water crisis globally through educational outreach and fundraising initiatives. In 2010, Bell received their Pioneering Spirit Award.

Bell was born and raised in Santa Ana, California, the son of Robin Dodson, a professional pool player, and Joe Bell. He has three older brothers, Joey, Robert and Travis, and one older sister, Kellie. His cousin is San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell.
