Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1988 and living in Devon from 1989 Russell is a singer songwriter from Plymouth drawing influence from many different genres of music, predominantly Rock and Blues. His debut 4-track EP was released in April 2013, entitled "Plymouth Tapes, Vol. 1" - part of an EP trilogy aimed at capturing songs in their stripped down basic form performed alone on acoustic guitar and stompbox.
As well as writing and recording, Russell is building a great reputation for his live performances and is building an enthusiastic fan-base. At present Russell is rehearsing a 4-piece band for live work, recording and touring next year to promote his debut album.
Russell has played support slots for touring artists when they're in Devon and continues to grow his reputation as a live artist with slots at the Plymouth Rhythms and Blues Festival and at the Truro Blues Festival in October 2013.
In 2014 Russell will embark on a small self-funded UK tour to promote his debut album and will be playing further afield including many of the music festivals in and around the UK.
