Press Info

“Thought provoking songwriting, delivered with passionate piano playing and powerful vocals.” New Paltz Times,
“With her soaring soprano, passionate piano playing and insightful lyrics, fans of Tori Amos should find Russell right up their alley. But Russell is definitely her own woman, playing a classical-folk-rock fusion that explores themes of love, hope and empowerment.” Times Union, Albany NY
“Vickie sings songs from the heart as she accompanies herself with beautiful arrangements full of arpeggios on the piano. A globetrotting performer, she is loved for her silky voice and her songs about human relationships.” Woodstock Arts and Crafts Fair
“Her Americana-edged piano style is original and her writing and performing strong. She also shows she is a capable guitarist and writes equally well on piano and guitar.“ Just Plain Folks, Brian Austin Whitney
“Russell’s voice is clear and strong, ranging from lilting to passionate. Lyrics are evocative, personal, and often spiritual.”
