A simple one-track mandolin tune. In fact it's the first tune I ever made on the mandolin. I think it would be better with a bodhran drum accompanying it, but I don't know how to play those! Maybe someday this will work its way into something…

This is a love song for Idaho. Funny thing is I've never even been to Idaho, but I dreamed the chorus and the happy little riff some years ago, and it's stuck with me ever since. So, I filled it in with some verses and an outro that capture the…

Here's a song I did today. It's fun, not perfect, but I'm digging some of the lyrics and the simple intro / bridge, and especially the outro. Maybe I'll do a better version later, but I'm happy with it for now. Lyrics: You thought it could…

A simple guitar groove. Haven't sat in a coffee shop since before the lockdowns, and I miss the atmosphere and the music! This tune feels to me like sitting in a cafe. (Every time I think it's done, I end up tweaking it a bit more in Audacity…

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 written like this all have…

First new one from me in a long time. Kind of a love song, I guess. Recorded in my new "studio" (3rd bedroom in the new house). Almost up and running now... shine and don't stop wondering! **** **Shine - A A J Russe** On my way…

OK, let's delve once more into the magical shoebox of unused songs... I've already recorded several that were written in 1994 (Sleeping with the Ghost, Elizabeth's Room, With Mum Again, If You Knew, A Hundred and Twenty Pound) and I still have…

They opened the economy here, but I don't think I feel safe going out more than I absolutely have to... and when I go out, I wear a mask.

Oh yes, nice one. Love that second verse "She’s in the mountains, She’s in the streams, She got singing birds, She got dreams..." ... yeah.

Love the lyrics. I was thinking like this the other day - not specifically for or about me - but I was explaining what Jimi Hendrix's Highway Chile meant to me when I was young (to my wife, she was just nodding, so I'm guessing it was one of those "uh-oh, Andrew's talking about music/musicians again, better nod my head" moments!). And then I was wondering about Neil Peart and how he used to write about stuff like this... and then I wonder how... etc... etc... IN my case, I deliberately stepped out of the spotlight before it got that bright - I miss it but not what it costs... and yep, years later, the music got young again... did I say love the lyrics?
