Russ started playing guitar at age 14 and never put it down. After being in numerous bands throughout high school and college years, he formed his own touring bands during the 70’s. These bands toured the East coast, from Florida to New York. After coming off the road he settled in Atlanta an worked in the music industry and gigged with local bands. Although he plays all types of music, his major influences come from the 60s and 70s R&B and rock. Russ has been playing professionally for 45 years. His experience and complete command of his instrument is inspiring. Russ is glad to be playing his favorite music and working with a great band in R&B, Inc. and continues to excite audiences everywhere.
