Songwriter, singer, guitarist and storyteller are the words that truly describe Russ Kelley. At this point in his career, Russ only does what interests him most. After years working as a full time professional musician (during which he toured all over Canada and the USA) and another number of years working in arts funding (mostly with the Canada Council for the Arts), he has spent the past few years back on stage, during which he has produced two CDs of original, toured all over Canada, and played festivals, music rooms, and house concerts. Last year (2017) he produced a small concert series in Ottawa, played a number of gigs, and began a unique recording project with four other colleagues that has occupied much of his time this year. There is much more to come about this project soon!

Please check out the buttons at the top of this page for more background information and streaming of his last cd “In Plain Sight” . This site has been experiencing difficulties and has not been fully updated in awhile. For more information and updates on gigs please checkout Russ’ site at Reverb Nation.
