Although Russell features on many websites this one will be the definite in-depth website about him as an established Multi-Platform Artist.
2016 saw him concentrate on photography and developing film projects he has wriiten and will direct but 2017 will be his major book release year and in particular 'Novels'. So this is likely to dominate the news section. He will however still do other arts as well, such as photography & music, which he is well known for. He will also write an exclusive blog on this site as well.Next year as well as more books his first feature films will go into production.
To learn more about different parts of his career click on links below (also if a name is highlighted in purple and underlined that means there is a direct link to what is mentioned). You will find many things to see and hear as well as the occasional free gift or two.

But in brief, Russell started writing at an early age and sold his first film script and TV options at 17, whilst also establishing a career as D.J at night, eventually becoming one of the top D.j's in Europe. He then married a pop star 'Eleanor Rigby' and switched to producing records and writing songs which proved successful with 250 releases worldwide as producer and 50 as a songwriter. Along the way he wrote a successful fanzine 'Dedicated Follower' (That is now housed in the prestigious Victoria and Albert museum), as well as writing the book 'Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music Industry without getting ripped off), which did really well and has been updated and released twice more. He also stumbled into photography and ended up taking some iconic images, with some being featured on album covers and posters etc, in 2016 he was signed up by Saatchi Art and also had a limited edition book release of his photos and lyrics called 'Voyeurs Welcome' which is just about to sell out.

In the 90's Russell ran a successful indie record label, 'Future Legend Records', helping to set new trends and create new music genres along the way. In recent years, apart from photography and still having a hand in music he returned to writing books and scripts and has a few films in the pipeline that he will direct as well. (He has in fact directed some popular pop videos before) We suppose we should also mention he has been in 2 or 3 bands as a musician, playing mainly Punk Cello and occasionally doing lead vocals.

His cuurent band is Psykick Holiday who have a CD album out 'Forever Pop Noir' They recently had a top 20 indie hit in the U.S. with 'One Way Ticket to the Moon' and have a brand new double 'A' single just out 'San Francisco/Let's Go to San Francisco' to celebrate the 50th annivesary of Peace & Love. It's available at Itunes and all good download sites. The video for both tracks have just premiered at youtube.

2017 will see the following books released. 'Adventures of a Dark Duke: The Pin', which will be the first of a series of fiction novels about a character loosely based on someone not a million miles away.It is released on spring 2017 . However the other two books out in 2017 will not be part of this series but stand along books, 'Kidnapping Time', an erotic Sci-Fi conspiracy thriller out around summer 2017 and either 'Over and Over' a music business revenge thriller or 'Mixing with the Unknown', a horror meets pulp fiction type novel. Which one being released is film tie in dependant. But one will see the light of day in Autumn 2017. Full details of these are via the book link at foot of the page.
