MrR; composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Russ Smith, a native of the storied musical atmosphere of San Francisco, started his career as a woodwind player, then studied classical and jazz piano adding a formal education in music theory, composition and early jazz studies, which formed the foundation for his musical journey.
Contributing both vocal and instrumental work, his compositions include mixing a blend of upbeat funk-jazz instrumentals to mood-filled Christian vocal messages. MrR’s musical influences are quit eclectic, stemming from traditional blues, jazz and gospel to contemporary Christian, and rock.
With his latest album release;"You Move Me", MrR is accompanied by some exceptional musicians and vocalists, adding extraordinary guitar and saxophone work, some very sweet vocal harmonies, and just a pinch of rhythmic rhyme.
