After a staggering 50 year career, Russell Morris continues to perform, record, tour & win awards.

On his latest album, Black and Blue Heart, Russell continues to find unique ways to challenge himself creatively. The album is produced by the legendary Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam) alongside Bernard Fanning, and backed by a dream studio band (Declan Kelly on drums, Wolfmother’s Ian Peres on keyboards, Matt Englebrecht on bass, and Dan Kelly on guitar).

When Russell sent his Black And Blue Heart demos to Nick DiDia and Bernard Fanning, the two producers were blown away. They rang him back almost immediately, saying they could not stop listening to the songs.

50 years ago, Russell Morris became the first Australian artist to score consecutive number one singles with his first two releases. ‘The Real Thing’, which is one of the classic psychedelic singles of the 1960s, and ‘Part Three Into Paper Walls’ both reached the top spot on the ARIA Chart.

In the past 10 years, Russell has delivered some extraordinary albums securing his place as one of the country’s greatest artists and best storytellers of all time. His trilogy about unique Australian characters and times – Sharkmouth, Van Diemen’s Land and Red Dirt – Red Heart were all widely acclaimed – the latter winning Best Blues and Roots Album at the 2016 ARIA Awards.
