An Evening With Tom Russell

Singer songwriter, painter, essayist – Tom Russell has recorded thirty-five highly acclaimed records, and published five books – including a book on his art and a book of his songs. Tom Russell songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, K.D. Lang, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris Dement, Joe Ely, and a hundred others. Tom Russell graduated from The University of California with a Master’s Degree in Criminology. He was recently awarded the 2015 ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for excellence in music journalism & has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman TV show five times.

“Folk Hotel was almost certainly the best Americana album of 2017 and the lyrics are some of the very best of the last decade. Tom Russell is one of the key songwriters of the last twenty years or so. He must now be included on any list of great songwriters which would also include important people like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams.”

Country Music People

“Mythical America explored by brilliant Americana songwriter. Russell is a riveting storyteller.”

UNCUT

"An outstanding record from an exceptional songwriter... It takes some sand to put out an album that shoots for “Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash in Bakersfield.”

Americana UK

"Celebrated singer-songwriter, artist and author on reassuringly vivid form. Russell has made a career from surveying the mythic aspects of America".
