Having spent 23 years learning his craft, Russell has finally ventured into professional music for media having played in many working bands in his youth on keyboards and bass guitar cutting his teeth since the tender age of 15 on the London gigging scene. From a humble upright Piano in the back room,using downtime in a pro studio at every given chance,and sound designing 20 years before the definition became a common by word, Russell has left no stone unturned in his quest for a big sound on a realistic budget. Having written for TV for US networks and currently poised to move into the Movie trailer market,Russell has set his sights for the highest rung on the composer ladder and will stop at nothing to get there even if this means living on coffee and inhaling every meal!
Currently signed to Couldb entertainment under the wing of media magnate Ken Parks (former VP for MTV networks),Russell forsees the next 12 months as his most productive and exciting time to date. “There is no reason now with today’s technology and networking freedom, why you cannot invite a world of composers and musicians into your virtual living room and attain the sound that several years back would mean big air travel costs,studio days just setting up session and spiralling costs that only a big act can hope to afford.We have entered the most exciting phase in music development and technology and im very proud to be part of this movement”
Russell hopes to engage music for media on a fulltime basis now he has made a good starting impression with 3 sample houses using his vision for product testing and demo work,and several independent film makers already requesting new project collaborations,many TV placements and all this in a matter of months. Recent and upcoming broadcasts of Russells work includes Bar rescue,Swamp Wars and Americas next top model,Project accessory/Runway,Roble chef,Million dollar decorators plus lots more.
