"Elliot's work has the potential to be groundbreaking."
- HUFFINGTON POST

- OUT MAGAZINE

"Supporting Russell means supporting a movement, and hopefully more artists will embrace this inclusive outlook on music and life."

Mission

"My mission is to tell it like it is-- to create authentic, powerful music out of my lived experience and worldview. Two important lenses through which I view the world are Feminism and Pansexuality. Mine is not activist music. Yet, in spite of acknowledging that my music doesn't directly address feminist or queer philosophy/politics, I'm not going to shy away from my truth: that these ideas impact my life-- and thereby, my work-- in subtle but noticeable ways.

You won't find misogyny on my records. We need to start addressing that great music is being written without it. We need to stop perpetuating hurtful cultural norms in music. You will find an irreverent embracing of the complexities surrounding sex, love, and sexuality on my record. In short, you'll find the truth."

Bio

During a wildly successful kickstarter campaign the Huffington Post noted that Russell Elliot's dusky, gritty, minimalist R&B has the "potential to be groundbreaking." The young Brooklyn artist and his loyal fan base of culturally progressive, cutting-edge and mindful audiophiles are celebrating the recent release of Elliot's debut EP and music video for infectious lead single, Around (premiered with OUT Magazine).

Elliot maintains artist residency relationships with The Bowery Poetry Club in New York and ArtPeace Studios in Nashville. See him perform around NYC in venues such as Webster Hall, Mercury Lounge, and The Knitting Factory.
