Tom Russell graduated from The University of California with a Master’s Degree in Criminology and has been doing justice to great song writing ever since. Tom’s songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, Kd Lang, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris DeMent, Joe Ely and a hundred others.

He has appeared on the David Letterman TV show five times spreading those songs across national US TV and beyond. His last record release, ‘The Rose of Roscrae’, a 52 track “folk opera” on the West was recognised as maybe the most important Americana record of all time by UK Folk, the top Folk album of 2015 by Mojo Magazine, and hailed in top ten lists in two dozen publications including The Los Angeles Times. He’ll be arriving with a bunch of new songs to parade at The Met.
