ARIA Award Winner 2016 Best Blues Roots Album “Red Dirt Red Heart”, Awarded “Order of Australia” in January 2018 for his contribution to the arts/music, Aria Hall of Fame inductee, #1 selling Platinum artist, King of Pop, Australian Icon!! These are just a few phrases commonly used when describing Aussie legend Russell Morris. Shooting to fame in the mid 60’s with “Somebody’s Image”, Russell had a string of hits including Hush and the Bob Dylan classic Baby Blue. In 1969 he and producer Molly Meldrum released “The Real Thing”, Australia’s only true psychedelic #1 hit and a song that is played regularly on commercial radio to this day.
Following that, Russell penned breakthrough hits such as; “Sweet Sweet Love”, “Wings of an Eagle”, “The Girl That I Love” and many, many more. Constantly in demand, Russell stills tours nationally throughout the year and as a favourite at Caloundra RSL, Russell returns for his second appearance as one of the headline acts at the Sunshine Rock and Blues Festival.
