Dan Russell is a highly revered artist manager and advocate, concert promoter, producer, creative collaborator, and video and film music supervisor. Russell has quite the impressive resume, having worked with the Call, Michael Been, Mark Heard, U2, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Sam Phillips, Andy Pratt, Bruce Cockburn, Switchfoot, Robin Lane, the Vigilantes of Love, Ramona Silver, Rachel Taylor, the Violet Burning, and countless others. In 1998, Russell co-founded Soulfest, the first New England social justice music festival, which has become an annual event attended by thousands.
Despite his many successes on the business side of the music industry, Russell's passion for writing and performing his own work has never abandoned him. The "echoes" kept dragging him back until finally, Russell deemed one important collaboration or promised business commitment to be the last one. Then, with official duties forestalled, the guitars came out of their cases and studio time was booked to record a series of his personal songs, the cryings of his own heart.
