Russell James

Oregon-based Autistic Singer-Songwriter


"..deep electric guitar, and lyrics almost too naked to face, but nevertheless succeeds as a rich guitar soundscape ready for revision..."

-Goat Palace Zine

"a lovely blend of dreamy, atmospheric synths, electric guitar... and Russell's warm, emotive vocals"

-Soundthread Music Blog

2016 Artist-in-Residence

Big Bend National Park






Happy New Year! We're excited to share that Russell is booking his schedule full up after a time of rest and writing. 

He is also excited to share some small details about his upcoming recording project, eponymously titled

"The Morning Singer". He will begin recording in Albuquerque, NM in May with his trusty producer Bill Palmer and Matthew Tobias at Empty House Studios.

Russell is hoping he can count on your support when the fundraising starts. He's trying to avoid the headache of crowdfunding and will instead be playing a series of fundraising live-streams and house shows. Follow him on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to find out when these special performances will take place. 

We wish you the very best this year, and we are of course always and forever grateful for your support. This isn't an easy thing Russell does, having support from his community keeps him going. Cheers!
