Full Biography

Having started singing life as a chorister in St Georges church Kidderminster and performing in many productions at King Charles, Russell moved to London to gain his BMus and MMus at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama to study voice on an unconditional place under the tutelage of Mr Ian Kennedy. After leaving college Russell has made his mark as a freelance singer up and down the country and is in great demand.

Opera credits include Tamino (The Magic Flute), Title role in Albert Herring, Pedrillo (The Abduction from the Seraglio), Don Basillio (The Marriage of Figaro), Don Jose (Carmen), Count Almaviva (The barber of Seville) and the second brother in the world premier of Laurence Romans Isabella and the Pot of Basil at Covent Garden and Buxton. In 2013 Russell gained his fellowship from the London collage of music (FLCM).

Russell has a very keen interest in the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, going so far as to write his Masters thesis on their life and music. His tenor roles in these operas to date are The Defendant, Marco, Frederic, Ralph, Earl Tolloller, Alexis, Nanki-Poo and Box. Only six more to go! Russell has also performed a recital of Sullivan songs at the Arts Centre on the island of Jersey. Just recently Russell has been accepted to sing principal tenor in the world renowned “Grims Dyke Opera Company”, at the home of that Late W.S Gilbert. His recital work is also recognized in other fields of English music, most recently song settings of the poetry of Housman in “The Blue Remembered Hills” for the Worcester festival.

Russell has also discovered a great passion for the works of Bach and is now enjoying numerous booking’s singing the evangelist roles in all the major works.

Brilliant voice and great performer.

5 stars - Tenor Russell are Highly Recommended
booked Tenor Russell for their Wedding in Northamptonshire

“I booked Russell as a surprise for my wife at our wedding. He sung alongside the string quartet that we had playing during the reception, whom he had never met before. His performance was amazing! He engaged with the audience with energy, charisma and hilarity - everyone stopped what they were doing to watch. His voice is incredible! Russell also made his performance funny by singing directly to people (including my wife) at times, which really made the performance so good! He was really helpful before the event; this was made harder by the fact that my wife had no knowledge of it happening and Russell also spoke with the string quartet prior to the day to ensure the arrangements went smoothly. Excellent performer and I would highly recommend!”

Lovely performance by Russell!
