Russell McLaughlin is a singer-songwriter who attempts to redefine the idea of a one-man-band, with his acoustic guitar, an array of effects pedals, and two quick feet..
Native of Atlanta, Russ currently resides in Milledgeville, Georgia. He may be found playing with a group, but performs mostly solo, creating a one-man ensemble, playing shows all over the Southeastern United States.
Russ has been a percussionist for over ten years. In 2001, he became fascinated with the Guitar and began to incorporate his love for intricate rhythm patterns with the knowledge of basic chord progressions he'd picked up from simple text. Russ then began playing with Jazz virtuoso, Phil Pickens, who helped to expand his musical horizons with various jazz guitar theory. Russ explored the fretboard of his guitar and discovered ways to interconnect theory, resulting in the 'hybrid' scales he often uses in his compositions. With incorporation of effects pedals, and development in guitar playing and songwriting, he took his creativity to a new level. Check out www.itsruss.com for more info!
