One of the fastest growing artists in 2016, rapper and producer Russ announces his eagerly-awaited first Australian tour commencing this April, including a stopover at Metro City on April 17.
Russ has created his own unique style – an eclectic fusion of East Coast hip-hop, hammock-rocking reggae, whiskey-soaked Southern rock and soul-scarred R&B. His music is hard but melodic, sophisticated but with a direct emotional message.
Hailing from Atlanta, Russ has a movement behind him, but his music is absent from the playlists of most radio stations. From the age of 14, Russ has dedicated himself to making music, his way. Since 2011 he has made eleven albums and produces, mixes, masters, engineers and writes his own music.
Catching the attention of Colombia Records in 2016, he was swiftly signed and released the track, What They Want. As the truism goes, there are ten years of hard work behind every overnight success. Don’t miss your chance to witness a future hip-hop heavy weight in the making. His story is just beginning.
Russ plays Metro City, Perth on April 17. More info at livenation.com.au
