Russell recorded a weekly podcast for fifteen years (2006-2021) at our sister site -

Songs for Saying Goodbye

Russell's 2021 homemade project is complete and available now for free stream and/or download. The album is titled "Songs for Saying Goodbye," and charts the emotional course of a year through eleven songs. Themes of loss, surrender, and departure, are woven with allegories, memory, regret, and the strange eliptical course of time as felt through relationships - past, present, and imaginary. The songs were written and recorded alongside the final year of the simplemuzik podcast.

Russell presented all eleven songs, + talked about tangents related, on the simplemuzik podcast in September and October 2021 (episodes 778 through 782). If you're interested, please visit
