Heartfelt words fuse with sass and a tongue-in-cheek attitude over upbeat bops and evocative moods - Russell Stewart draws on multiple soul influences and a singer-songwriter attention to lyricism to create his own brand of neo soul.
This ‘talented young Glasgow artist’ (Sunday Mail, March 2019) wows audiences whether solo or backed by full band. Intricate yet powerful vocals burst with emotion over high passion performances and stripped-back numbers.
Highlights of 2018 include performing at TRNSMT festival in June, supporting touring acts Wyvern Lingo at Stereo in March and Bakar at his sold out show in the Garage Attic in October, and recording and releasing a ‘Summer’s End Session’ video with full band. Russell rounded off the year with the release of his debut single Who Am I to You? and kicked off 2019 playing at King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution, supporting ST.MARTiiNS.
With festivals to be announced, more shows and new releases on the way, this is shaping up to be a big summer for Russell Stewart.
