The iconic Tom Russell has recorded 35 highly acclaimed records and published five books. His songs have been recorded by legendary artists such as Johnny Cash, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, k.d. lang and hundreds of others.
Born in Los Angeles, Russell earned a Master’s degree in Criminology from the University of California and taught in Nigeria during the Biafran War before relocating to Vancouver to begin his musical career singing Hank Williams’ songs in skid row bars. Now a legendary live performer, Russell has been credited with inventing and re-inventing American roots music. His songs have also been part of dozens of movies and television series. In 2019, he released October in the Railroad Earth, an album that is self-described as “Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash in Bakersfield.”
