A humble red brick house in Grand Prarie, Texas is a comfortable enough place for any person to be raised, but Joel Adam Russell was never one for comfort.
It was the frequent visits to the childhood homes of his mother and father in rural Arkansas and Louisiana, respectively, that ignited his youthful imagination. As a boy he dreamed of a life in the woods. It’s here that he would experience the classic melodies of gospel hymns being sung in a small Southern Baptist Church of which his grandfather was the pastor.
For the past decade Joel has dug in his heels to explore the roots of who he is personally and musically. He has honed in on a sound that is gruff and hearty. In the broadest use of the word his music is Americana, pulling from a variety of quintessentially American music stylings. His heartfelt lyrics speak to his restless travels throughout the country and his observations of the lives of those around him as well as his own.
