  • Tom Russell Fans, Rejoice

    Posted by David Foster on November 13th, 2012 (All posts by )

    I don’t know how many Tom Russell fans there are among the Chicago Boyz and Grrlz and Readerz, but whatever the number is, I think it should be greater, because TR is IMO one of the best singer/songwriters working in America today. He’s just published a new book: 120 Songs, with lyrics, guitar chords, and stories about how each of the songs was inspired and written.

    I reviewed Russell’s album The Man From God Knows Where, a song-cycle about the American immigrant experience, here.

    Some other TR songs:

    Stealing Electricity

    The Pugilist at 59

    Bucking Horse Moon

    Russell’s concert tour is now on the east coast; schedule here
