For over four decades and 28 album releases Tom Russell has continued to live up to his status as “one of the best singer-songwriters of our time” (Washington Post). His previous two studio releases, ‘Blood and Candle Smoke’ (2009) and ‘Mesabi’ (2011), are considered his strongest composed works yet and were, in part, recorded with the ground breaking roots band Calexico.
In the 1990s, Russell and Dave Alvin were hailed as the architects of what came to be known as “Americana” music after their Merle Haggard tribute, ‘Tulare Dust’, initiated the Americana charts in the U.S. and remained number one for a year. Russell’s previous release, ‘Aztec Jazz’ (2013), moved Americana into a new realm and his acclaimed song catalog into uncharted territory.
Tom Russell’s songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, Dave Alvin, Joe Ely, and others. ‘The Rose of Roscrae’ is his third in a series of acclaimed folk operas, follows ‘The Man From God Knows Where’ (1999) and ‘Hotwalker’ (2005). Russell has also composed movie scores, including songs for the Monte Hellman movie ‘The Road To Nowhere’. and published five books, most recently 120 Songs of Tom Russell. An accomplished fine artist, Russell’s paintings are featured in: Blue Horse/Red Desert: The Art of Tom Russell.
Tom Russell’s anticipated double-album folk opera, ‘The Rose of Roscrae’, features a who’s who of legendary Americana icons including amongst others : Jimmie Dale Gilmore, David Olney, Johnny Cash, Joe Ely, Jimmy LaFave, Gretchen Peters, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Eliza Gilkyson, and many more.
