WR Semi-finalist in International Songwriting Competition - Blues 

MAR 5 2015

Just announced: Woody is a semi-finalist in the 2014 International Songwriting Competition - Blues category - for his song, "That's Just The Way My Wheels Roll", from his album, Up Against It. We're hoping the best for getting in to the finalist round of the competition. Finalists will be announced around the end of March.

"Front Porch Concerts" and the Live Music Capital Foundation present WR and Band in May 

FEB 10 2015

Woody Russell and his Ridiculously Good Band will be presented in a very special concert event at All Saints Episcopal Church for their "Unplugged On The Front Porch" Concert Series in Austin. The series features extraordinary songwriters of all variations; this season alone they host Walt Wilkins, Sam Baker, Eliza Gilkyson and, just added, Woody Russell.

WR and band will, however, will not necessarily be "unplugged" for this "not to miss" listening room style concert. If you've been wanting to catch Woody Russell in a proper concert experience in Austin, this is your chance. A beautiful setting offers an evening of Russell's own "Technicolor Americana" accompanied by his superb band and will be a treat for concert goers this May. The show if free to attend, but a $10-$20 donation is appreciated (all proceeds go to the artist).

More information at the Unplugged On The Front Porch website.

WR and his Ridiculously Good Band return to Brass House for monthly residency

Every month (with the exception of SxSW in March) you can listen to the fine sounds of Russell's "Ridiculously Good Band" featuring the two newest additions to the line-up, Lloyd Wright (piano, organ, synths) and Tony Miller (drums) with longtime band mates Brady Muckelroy (bass) and Jose "Sweettone" Ruiz, harmonicas/percussion. The Brass House also offers an exceptional dinner menu. WR and band take the stage from 9pm - 1am.

Blues Revue
“Woody Russell has crafted a lovely collection of original blues and soul music… appealing guitar tones; his crisp, inventive lines blend funk and blues with Jeff Beck’s fearlessness.” – Tom Hyslop

Blues Matters (UK)
"There's a fine legacy of Texas blues and Woody Russell is well up there alongside many of his heroes... sounds like the work of a man whose life revolves around his music and he writes and plays well enough to put him well ahead of most of his peers." - Andy Snipper (UK)
