Russell Boyd is bringing a new kind of music to Texas: part rock and part Americana with a dose of hip-hop influence. Every song has a different flavor, and shows are high-energy and interactive. He might even make fun of you. He doesn’t mean it.

Raised in East Texas on a diet of Beatles, Johnny Cash, and Snoop Dogg, Russell began playing guitar at fifteen before picking up piano and drums. He has played over 3,000 piano bar shows around Texas, which has helped him both as a musician and as an entertainer. He has opened for several big Texas acts, and his next single “The End of The World” hits Texas radio on May 23.

He also writes Sci-Fi novels. Yep. Look them up.

Russell lives in Round Rock with his wife Kathy and two children. If you see him, you had better give him a hug. His new album is out in June and will be available everywhere online.
