Tom Russell’s music incorporates elements of folk, traditional country & western, border and cowboy music of the American West.
Tom lived right here in Vancouver. “I started my career on East Hastings Street, playing eight hours a night at The Gulf Club. This is where I learned the song trade and how to front a band in danger zones.”
Tom Russell’s latest recording of original compositions, October in the Railroad Earth, was released on CD and vinyl on March 15, 2019, on Frontera Records in North America and Proper Records for the rest of the world. He describes the songs and sound as “Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash in Bakersfield.” Bill Kirchen is featured on lead electric guitar, Eliza Gilkyson adds vocals, and the Grammy® Award-winning Texmaniacs appear on 'Isadore Gonzalez', about a Mexican cowboy who died in England during a performance of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
Tom has appeared at The Rogue on eighteen previous occasions.
