MUSIC

    
   
 

My music is the most personal of all the creative endeavors I do. It comes from the heart. I usually go into a 'zone' when I'm composing on the keyboard. I wanted to show a variety of styles and song persectives, so below you see a few very different songs, lyrically and musically.

Music & Lyrics by Russell

I wanted an uplifting beat to go with the positive lyrics. ALL music done by me on synthesizers - yes even french horns & finger snaps. By the way, the background vocals are done by me using a harmony machine with lots of pitch correction :)

Vocals done by a guy who worked at the mailroom at Universal studios (Damon Smith).

Music & Lyrics by Russell

For this song I wanted an opposite feeling than with 'Together'. I wanted a very melancholy feel to the music to match the longing lyrics. All music done by me on synthesizers.

Music & Lyrics by Russell

For this song I was going for a very rhythmic, ethnic sound with just a hint of positive direction. All music by me on synthesizers.

 

 
Dream Lover

If I could
(mp3) 3mb
 

Music & Lyrics by Russell

This is an unfinished dance song. Was intended to accompany a jazz dancer. All music done by me on synthesizer & drum machine. Piano plays vocal line that was never recorded.

Music arrangement by Russell

I play all the music except for the guitar. This was a song for a feature film "Sally & Jess". Recorded live with no editing.

Sung by the Wintergate family.

All music performance by Russell

I didn't write this song, but I just like the harmony and lyrics. All music performed by me on synthesizers.

I added a secretary from Universal for the second part for this song :)
