Biography

My name is Lance Russell. My first guitar came to me by way of tragedy. My uncle took his life long before I was born and his brothers each took one of his guitars to remember him by. When I was old enough to start looking for things I wasn’t supposed to find his old Dobro was the greatest treasure my eye had ever seen. I still remember the aroma that came from the opening of the case and sound the strings made after being strummed for the first time in decades. This experience awoke a creativity and love for music that I never knew.

Some of my melodies reflect the sadness linked to my first guitar while others proclaim that our trials here are fleeting and are soon washed away by tears like the blessing of rain. And close to my heart is the only pure thing we have in this world, Love. On “Don’t You Want To?” you can hear the need for someone to want you as much as you want them. And in a song to my wife played on our wedding day, “The Queen Of All My Dreams,” the joy of finding your one true love is expressed. I revere the beauty of God’s creation in the instrumental track “Peace Of Autumn” and his Providence in “Your Majesty” and “I See Your Hand.”

These simple songs are a window into my heart and soul and I hope they speak to yours.

What 2 or 3 tunes best Characterize you? - Borrowed from Bob6stringer October 2, 2007
I got this blog idea from Bob6stringer where he asks you to list 3 songs that best characterize you. I thought it was a great way to "advertise" myself in a sense. So, I have listed those songs below. However they will probably change as I improve as an artist. That's the whole idea isn't it?
