Luther Russell is a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who was born in Los Angeles, California. His career began with DGC and American recording artists The Freewheelers twenty-five years ago. As a solo artist he has released an eclectic series of albums that range from folk-rock to power-pop…and even funk. His latest, The Invisible Audience, is a kaleidoscopic double-album which won raves across the board. As producer he has worked with many critically acclaimed artists such as Richmond Fontaine, Fernando, Sarabeth Tucek and Ned Roberts. Luther’s albums and production work for others have been praised by the likes of Uncut, Mojo, Word, BBC, Tape Op, L.A. Times, NME, The Quietus and more. His music has been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO and Showtime. Luther’s latest project is Those Pretty Wrongs, a duo with Jody Stephens of the legendary group Big Star. Their self-titled full-length was released on Ardent/Burger to ecstatic reviews and they’ve since toured four continents. Luther also co-wrote two songs for Weezer’s recent Grammy-nominated self-titled record. A 2xCD retrospective of his career entitled Selective Memories: An Anthology is released this Sept. on Hanky Panky Records, as well as a double-cassette version on Burger Records in Oct., then full digital release in the new year.
