Having cut his teeth with seminal southwestern Americana band, The Porter Draw, Russell James Pyle has settled into his own as a dreamy folk singer with heavy, descriptive lyrics and kind sweet melodies. He released the LP “RISE” in May 2016 and the EP “SEASONS” in December 2016 to great acclaim.

Inspired by struggle and triumph, the natural world, and spoken with a sincerity that touches deep, Russell James Pyle’s songwriting “has its fingers placed firmly on the pulse of American life,” (New Mexico Americana Music Society). Influenced as much by Bruce Springsteen as red dirt country, Russell’s music blends heart and hand as he spins tales of experience and honest introspection. His performances are passionate, energetic, and delivered in his trademark vibrato rasp.
