David Russell has weathered the changing seas of Americana and acoustic string music. From his schooling in classical guitar at age 6 and his first professional performance at 13, the award winning performer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist followed his musical compass,  influencing and shaping a new/old music sorely needed in an increasingly rootless world,  all the while keeping his roots firmly planted in tradition. His performances of timeless traditionals & classics are mixed with his own writing and those of respected contemporary writers and friends, taking an audience on a musical variety tour of styles, with an energy and sensitivity that captivates . He says by connecting his artistry to live audiences:
“ I  want  to leave people entertained, inspired and uplifted, with memories that stay in daily life-- for me, it's a matter of deep belief in and dedication to the workmanship of my craft "
