A Creative Spiritual Presence
Russell has been described as a philosopher/singer-songwriter who brings his passion for nature and personal exploration into his music, his touching lyrics often standing alone as pure poetry.
With a finger-style guitar expertise drawn from Bruce Cockburn and vocal style reminiscent of Gordon Lightfoot, his music is like an autumn leaf, a multi-coloured revelation of what is hidden under the normal display that we present to the world.
He was a frequent featured singer at “Songwriter’s Unite” at Hugh’s Room in Toronto and was selected to sing one his songs at the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals.
His CD Masterkey displays tasteful arrangements and guitar wizardry. His songs are poignant; they will touch you deeply and you can’t help but be moved.
