Musician, Singer, Songwriter (Aus)
Russell Morris is one of Australia’s most enduring singers. A major pop star in the late ’60s, he is one of our first singer/songwriters. He is known for his seven-minute production extravaganza around the song The Real Thing. It reached number one in Australia, Chicago, Houston, and New York in 1969. His hit singles include Part Three Into Paper Walls (The Real Thing revisited), The Girl That I Love, Sweet Sweet Love and Wings of an Eagle.
In 1991, Russell released, A Thousand Suns, and in 2001, The Real Thing and Wings of an Eagle featured prominently in the Australian-made film, The Dish.
He has continually topped the ARIA Charts and dominated the Australian Blues scene with his platinum selling and ARIA Award winning Best Blues Album Sharkmouth, Van Diemens Land and Red Dirt, Red Heart. His latest album, Jack Chrome and the Darkness Waltz, has continued this tradition.
