Indie-folk/ Americana artist Russ Glenn picked up the guitar at age 15 and had recorded his first album of original songs just 5 years later. A military kid, Russ calls wherever he is home - although Southern California and Virginia dominated his early years.
Russ has released 4 albums since his debut album "Starshell"; his latest, released in 2022 is entitled "Pale Blue Dot" and was called a "must-listen album" by Neufutur.com.
Pale Blue Dot's 10 original tracks range from the yearning and longing of "Don't Turn Me Away" and "The Cantaloupe Terrain" to the bubbly fun of "Dead All Day" & "Your Plastic Heart". The title track of the album is inspired by, and an homage to, the late astronomer, Carl Sagan.
Critics and tastemakers have remarked that he “writes melodic, soothing odes that crawl inside the recesses of your subconscious and root there for days at a time,” and have compared him to “a fiery Van Morrison” with "a bit of the Dave Matthews Band and Ben Folds”.
