Tom Russell’s latest recording of original compositions, October in the Railroad Earth, is set for CD and vinyl release March 15, 2019, on Frontera Records in North America and Proper Records for the rest of the world. He describes the songs and sound as “Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash in Bakersfield.”
Bill Kirchen is featured on lead electric guitar, Eliza Gilkyson adds vocals, and the Grammy® Award-winning Texmaniacs appear on “Isadore Gonzalez,” about a Mexican cowboy who died in England during a performance of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. The record contains nine other originals, including the title song from the Irish film Small Engine Repair, and a cover of the traditional “Wreck of the Old 97.”

October in the Railroad Earth follows the acclaimed 2017 Frontera/Proper album Folk Hotel and Russell’s tribute to Ian & Sylvia on True North Records, Play One More, both receiving worldwide acclaim. Between major releases in 2018, Russell recorded the Bruce Springsteen track “Across The Border” for the three-disc Appleseed Records anniversary sampler, Roots and Branches, and issued a re-recording of early classics on Frontera, Old Songs Yet To Sing.

    Tom Russell's new record of originals, "Folk Hotel," was released Sept 8, 2017. This followed the release in May 2017 of his Ian and Sylvia Tribute "Play One More - The Songs of Ian and Sylvia," which was the #1 played Folk DJ record in the world in June 2017. 137 stations reported. 

    "Folk Hotel" includes 13 new Tom Russell originals and a duet of Bob Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" with Joe Ely. Augie Meyers, Eliza Gilkyson, Redd Volkaert, and Joel Guzman also appear on the record. It's a good shot that Tom will have two #1 Folk DJ records within a few months of each other in Fall 2017.

    Recent reviews include:

    Mythical America explored by brilliant Americana songwriter...Russell is a riveting storyteller.
    Peter Watts, UNCUT, Oct. 2017

    Tom Russell's 'Folk Hotel' keeps it simple, beautiful — and Hank Williams pays a visit...
    Chicago Tribune, 9/6/17, Steve Knopper,

    As ruggedly romantic as ever...Russell is a treasure.
    Colin Irwin, Mojo, Oct. 2017

    Folk Hotel continues to distinguish what makes Russell a master songwriter...fascinating details, quirky characters, and sophisticated narrative structure.
    The Austin Chronicle, 9/15/17

    Singer songwriter, painter, essayist - Tom Russell has recorded thirty five highly acclaimed records, & published five books - including a book on his art and a book of his songs. Tom Russell songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Doug Sahm, Nanci Griffith, K.D. Lang, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Ian Tyson, Iris Dement, Joe Ely, and a hundred others. Tom Russell graduated from The University of California with a Master's Degree in Criminology. He was recently awarded the 2015 ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for excellence in music journalism & has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman TV show five times.

    In 2015 Russell released a 52 track "folk opera" on the West, The Rose of Roscrae, which was hailed as "Maybe the most important Americana record of all time," by UK Folk, and "The top Folk album of 2105," by Mojo Magazine. It was included in top ten lists in three dozen publications, including The Los Angeles Times. The record included tracks by Johnny Cash, Leadbelly, Walt Whitman, Maura O'Connell, Finbar Furey, and others. His latest release (May 2016) is The Tom Russell Anthology 2 (Gunpowder Sunsets) - 19 Tracks.
