Josh Harring (Review)
Stephen Russell is a man of many talents. Singing and playing over 10 instruments, this lifelong musician, along with his wife Shelley, has been in the music scene for over three decades. Steve’s current project, Phacets Musuc, is his take on many classic songs from various genres of music, including the aforementioned country, classic rock, R&B, and more. As the name would imply, there is a bit of a country twang twist on the song’s vocals – Steve pulls it off very well even though he’s from the Northeast instead of the Deep South! Furthermore, the instrumentation often has a bit of a retro-synthesizer throwback feel to it as well (check out his interpretations of “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles and “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder). If you’re looking for something a little different but still familiar, and you want to check out a talented musician at work, check out Phacets Music!
