RUSSELL! is a talented singer-songwriter from Brampton, a tiny Ontario suburb just out of Toronto. Not too long ago, he released an appealing music video for his “Scarlett’s Weekend” single.
RUSSELL! – “Scarlett’s Weekend” music video
“‘Scarlett’s Weekend’ is about a romantic rendezvous I had with a girl from out of town that came to visit me for a weekend. We understood that we didn’t have much time together. So we enjoyed it while it lasted.” – RUSSELL!
‘Scarlett’s Weekend’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies that are sure to pull on your heartstring. Also, the sentimental tune possesses warm guitar-driven instrumentation beautifully flavored with contemporary R&B and modern-soul elements. Furthermore, “Scarlett’s Weekend” serves notice that RUSSELL! plans to be next off of a conveyor belt that has already given us The Weeknd, DVSN, and Majid Jordan.
RUSSELL! was raised on a steady diet of classic pop through listening to the radio with his mother. When he was a teenager, he met a songwriter who inspired him to pursue his creative talents.
“I was experimenting with music already. But after I met him, I realized that I really wanted to make music. Also, it sparked the creativity in my brain.” – RUSSELL! explained
Shortly afterward, RUSSELL! developed a following on YouTube and MySpace while releasing rap music as D-Pryde. At the age of 16, he signed a record deal and moved to New York City. However, creative differences made for a shaky few years in the creative wild. Also, the tough time he faced was further complicated by his mother’s unfortunate passing. After he parted ways with his former label, he re-learned the finer points of the music industry while independently managing himself and finding his voice.
