Russ- There’s Really a Wolf in Europe Tour
Manchester Academy- 12th March 2018
This is heartfelt, truthful music for self-empowerment. Real soul. It’s hard but melodic, sophisticated but with a direct emotional message, and this tour is going to be one for the history books.
There are hints of hammock-rocking reggae, whiskey-soaked Southern rock, and soul-scarred R&B. No gimmicks, just eclectic fusion at its most advanced.
If the true mark of a rebel is to resist accepted falsehoods, speak up for what they believe, and go against the grain, Russ owns that description. Take his current hit, “What They Want.” Sure, the beat is hard and there are bars about girls and his rise to success, but it goes much deeper.
He’s the one pulling the strings and pointing out the puppets. He’s savvy and attuned to the demands of the music industry.
