A little piece that hopefully conveys a soggy sort of day when all you can do is stare out of the window, and ruminate!! Finished this after a huge downpour last weekend, with the rain dripping off the roof…!!

(Remastered 22/10/2021) I've been missing in action for ages - apologies to all, I'm about to start listening again too. For ages, I'd been considering a move away from my trusty Boss BR1600 on which I've recorded and mixed nearly everything…

**** Jan 17 2015 - Remixed. I was always kinda disappointed with what the original mix sounded like. Listening to it the other day I realised what it is - I'd mixed the vocals too loud. This reduced the "stereo" and killed off a lot of the life…

A symphonic overture. The piece has a fast, rhythmically propulsive 'A' section, a contrasting meditative 'B' section, and a recap with some extensions. This piece was a finalist prize winner in the 2008 'Realize Music' contest, an international…

(Remastered 22/10/2021) And here's another song from 1994, with a sparkling new "Andrew Russe Band" arrangement fresh from the broom-cupboard. Like most of my songs, it was written with an acoustic guitar, a pen, and an A4 pad. The ones…

(Remastered 22/10/2021) And this is the last of the little threesome of In Your Hands, Little Thing, and this one, When I Try To Be Me. It's in the key of 4th fret and was written just over a month later than the other two, on 19th March…

Don't know the original, but I'm digging this. Mighty cool vocal.

Particularly following a very recent piece, Nordic Noir, I may have slipped into movie/TV/Game trailer mode!!! So here is a piece featuring solo violin that has been titled An Awakening...and listeners can then put their own imagination to work…

very atmospheric. You could be a music producer for games with production like this. Really good! <3

Originally classically trained, but then a Rock influenced musician throughout life, playing keys in very many bands, duos etc, over the years, and also including for a few years from 2008 a member of a touring Pink Floyd tribute. Currently an occasional guest member of the local rock and blues band, Dangerous Things. However, in this enforced Lockdown I have gone back to my more classical roots, and really majoring in on short epic style movie themes and trailers. I have completed a series of what I have called Lockdown Orchestrations, and now moved on to Fusion Soundcapes. Also, very much enjoying various musical collaborations with local musical colleagues - in the virtual world until the Lockdown is over, and where I am calling these the Paul Matthews Experiments!
