We just saw Steve Russell of Phacets Music performing with his group “rNb” at Augies in Goodyear, AZ this past Friday. We were just going to stay for a couple of songs and one round of drinks, but ending up staying the entire evening. A great variety of material, excellent vocals and guitar of Steve’s part! Highly recommend!
I am so impressed with the results of all your hard work, Steve. It’s obvious how much you love what you do, your passion for music shines through each song. I am happy to see you’ve added Country music to your playlist…I’m a big Country fan and enjoyed listening to your tracks.
Steve Russell has always loved performing and now he has compiled many of his long-time favorites with some country overtones in his reinvention. He has taken a few dozen Pop, Rock and Country favorites and added a hint of his Country sound to them, for a refreshing new musical sound. This Massachusetts homeboy, now living in the Arizona desert, is not a Fish out of water. Steve has put his unique spin and rejuvenated energy into this musical ensemble. If you loved the music of the 70’s and 80’s, you are in for a treat courtesy of Steve. He may have the most unique rendition of the Moody Blues’ Story in Your Eyes I have ever heard. He pulls it off and makes it work. The long lost favorite Third Rate Romance by The Amazing Rhythm Aces is a great cover performance. And how many would dare to take on Billy Idol’s White Wedding? Steve Russell would. In this long awaited compilation, Steve Russell shows us his creativity in bringing so many Rock hits over to the Country line. His easy twang and love for his music carry the day musically.
Really enjoyed your music mix – so much great music done so VERY well! Thanks for sharing – glad you got back to your studio – now I’m inspired to drag out my bass and start jamming!
Nice artwork. As usual, your voice is “maw-ve-lous, Dah-ling.” However, … I hate to tell you, I really don’t care for country music, but I DID like your “Toto”, “Billy Idol” and “Steve Miller.”
I listened to some of your tunes and they are great! I especially like your vocal harmonies. Very nice!
I listened to your tracks this A.M. with snow falling and a cup of tea! Great job! I loved Baker Street! And so much work you put into it! You should be so proud. I wish I could do that! Thank you for sharing! Wonderful!
Very nice, it was very smooth!!! Really enjoyed!
So happy to hear you back in the Boot Scootin’ Boogie, where the Brown-Eyed Girl sees Tequila Sunrise in Sweet Home Alabama thru the Sunshine of Your Love, and ends up Takin’ it Easy in Margaritaville!
Can’t you see that the Wild Nights when Your Mama Don’t Dance in Sweet Home Chicago can lead to the Ventura Highway and leave you a Thousand Miles from Nowhere counting Mexican Minutes ?
Can’t believe someone so talented in the Wagon Wheel of life can’t get the concept of Flying Fish!
Can’t believe you took a break from live performances! These songs bring back lots of memories from high school and college days! I really like the easy tone of your voice and the instrumentals are fantastic.
