Russell Samuels - Lead vocals & Guitar

 

Russell’s early passion for rock music came from hearing AC/DC’s live
album “If You Want Blood” when he was just 12 years old, and as a teenager
he listened especially to the old style heavy rock and roll of Deep
Purple, UFO, Rainbow and AC/DC. However an exposure for the first time to
Pink Floyd and the mighty theatre of their album “The Wall” captured him
and he was encouraged to go back in time to discover and appreciate the
earlier albums. Russell has continued ever since in his following and
admiration of the musical genius of all the members of Pink Floyd,
latterly having a particular liking for the works of Roger Waters and
especially his post-Floyd writing in “Amused To Death”.

After enjoying a dream come true singing a medley of Floyd songs music
with the band SandS with fellow Pinked Floyd member Luke, Russell went on
to inspire the gathering of the amazing members of Pinked Floyd who
perform the outstanding live showcase of Pink Floyd music we see and hear
today.

Away from Pinked Floyd, Russell continues to develop his solo material as
well as occasional performances of covers and originals with his sister Jo
Samuels.


Kit list:
Russell rehearses using a much loved vintage Suzuki jumbo acoustic guitar
and he currently plays a Tanglewood jumbo elecro-acoustic on stage. A
personal choice sees him singing with ElectroVoice microphones which
"offer the beautiful depth of tone required for the Gilmour and Waters
type of vocal sound".

Russel's passion to perform to a live audience and the associated pleasure
and euphoria that it delivers to him personally urges Russell to continue
his determined will to entertain. "I am privileged to be associated with
the amazing creative and musical talent that surrounds me in Pinked Floyd
and long may that continue into the future" says Russell.
