In 2013 Russell decided to commence playing solo following the demise of local Plymouth rock band Syruss in which Russ was the lead guitarist, vocalist and main songwriter.
Having performed solo for about a year, Russell wanted the bigger sound only a band can create but without the restrictions that a fixed lineup imposes.
Following a series of personnel changes in his live band a steady group of musicians has emerged who form the main part of Russell's live/touring lineup. Together they are part of the city’s Blues and Roots music scene. In 2015 Russell released his debut album, Bought & Sold, with a popular and well attended CD launch show and party in Devon. Followed by an even bigger and more ambitious event for his latest single release -a tense, gritty rendition of "Damn Your Eyes".
