About

Bio

Russell is a singer, guitarist and songwriter from Plymouth drawing influence from many different genres of music.

As well as writing and recording, Russell is building a great reputation for his energetic live guitar driven performances and is building an enthusiastic fan-base throughout the South West.

June 2015 saw the release of Russells debut album entitled "Bought & Sold" with the songs being well received at various UK Blues festivals throughout the year.

Russell frequently performs with his band The Smokin' Locos - the personnel, roles and instruments within the band frequently change in keeping with the varied musical styles that are created.

Mar 21, 2014 BBC Introducing, Devon

“I don’t know what it is about the Blues and Plymouth but they seem to be very much connected at the moment with a handful of superb Blues/Rock musicians based in the city and Russell Sinclair is not only one of the cities, but also the counties finest examples, both live and recorded. Standout tracks that we love here at BBC Introducing are the likes of ‘Brave New Day’ from his second EP ‘The Plymouth Tapes’ Vol 2’, and the new track ‘Bigger Man’…but we are a sucker for the blues harp! Look out for Russell at numerous venues across the South West…including a much anticipated performance for BBC Introducing in Devon.” James Santer, BBC Introducing, Devon

Testimonial
Feb 11, 2014 Testimonial

Russell Sinclair and the Smokin’ Locos….well where do you start…… These guys stepped in at the last minute to fill a gap left by a regular band who had to cancel due to sickness, and, as always, I was a little concerned as to whether our customers would enjoy the night’s music. As it turned out, the music, both in quality and quantity was absolutely amazing. This band are the ‘tightest’ and one of the most professional I have ever seen. Their song portfolio moves from swing to jazz to modern to…..well, whatever you desire To any venues out there who want real professionalism coupled with a mix of songs to suit all ages, get your venue bouncing, then this band is for you. I made a big mistake (in some ways) of booking 2014 well in advance, as I don’t have the opportunity to re-book this extremely talented and highly entertaining band. If you would like me to confirm the above, I would be pleased to do so, so any doubts, call me on 01822 853121 Phil Cater The Burrator Inn
