CORPORATE - WEDDINGS - VENUES
Even before he was born, Russ was filled with the gift of music. It’s part of his DNA. Music was the life blood for his family. Russ grew up with the sounds of Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Prince and many other Soul and Motown performers, who continue to influence his repertoire.
A popular contestant on the 2017 season of The Voice, Russ’s remarkable vocal talents delight and soothe the most tortured of souls – be it crooning a ballad or funking up some serious R n b. He doesn’t just sing though, Russ is equally happy as master of the rhythm on drums or conquering the strings – be it six or four – on guitar. He frequently combines his talents at regular gigs around Brisbane.
One of the founders of Brisbane’s famous Tuesday night R‘n’B Jam, Russ has jammed with the likes of Brian Frasier-Moore and the entire horn section from Robbie Williams’ band when they toured in Australia. He was also part of the opening act for Beyonce’s Australian tour and was proud to have sung the New Zealand national anthem at the 2015 ANZAC Test at Suncorp Stadium.
Russ is a hit at corporate events and is often requested to return time and again. Weddings and private events are also a favourite for Russ and he’s sure to get the vibe exactly right – be it ambient music or party time.
