Russ plays a mix of (mostly) acoustic rock-folk-funk that brings to mind such artists as Jack Johnson and Ben Harper. Russ "write(s) melodic, soothing odes that crawl inside the reccesses of your subconcious and root there for days at a time" (Jesse a.k.a. The Vicar www.indoorfireworks.blogspot.com) Russ himself has been described as "a fiery version of Van Morrison" (Green Cafe) with a "Morrissey and Stipe vibe" (Taxi.com). His song writing is insightful and poetic, weaving images and stories that "live in the universal flow of human experience" (Michael Pionkowski- Independent Music Critic). His musical influences range from the Folk of Donovan to the punk sound of The Clash. His performances focus on his original music but include covers of bands and artists like The Velvet Underground, Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer(The Clash), R.E.M., Van Morrison,John Prine, Bob Marley, Sinead O'connor, Ben Harper and Red House Painters.
Russ has recently relocated to Austin, Texas.
