Genuine jazz and blues singer. Her voice is a dusky, stalwart and soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. Catherine Russell joins the rank of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song. Catherine’s father, Luis Russell was a groundbreaking vintage jazzman -- a pianist, composer/arranger, and most prominently, the music director for Louie Armstrong from 1920-1943. Catherine Russell is influenced by old-time blues and jazz singers like Bessie Smith, Ruth Brown, and Etta James, as well as the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, gospel and opera music.
