The result is No Contest, an EP where for the first time Liam didn’t work with the “right” writers, producers or team. No Contest is a collection of simple, heartfelt songs about people and ideas that inspired him to break free of his own expectations. To mark this new chapter and in honor of his grandfather, Mel Russell who passed away in 2016, he changed his last name to Russell.
The self-produced EP was recorded at a cottage with 5 of his best friends. Their only obligation was to do what felt right in the moment, and the result is an honest batch of songs drawn from real-life events. No Contest reveals itself through stories of loss, reconnection to one's spirit, love in long term-relationships and the inspiration of the #MeToo movement.
