Russelle was born and raised in Southern California. His first memory of music was when he was young his mother would play the piano and sing when he was going to sleep. He said to himself, “I’m going to learn how to play the piano and sing as well.” While his piano skills are average, he really took a liking to singing and improving his vocal ability. He has performed in many musicals such as The Wizard of Oz, Sleepy Hallow, and Once On This Island. He is currently in the Vocal Performance program at Palomar College and has performed in many recitals as a soloist and also with professional groups, including: the San Diego Master Chorale and the Bach Collegium of San Diego. When he was in High School, he was introduced to a vocal coach by his choir director which set him on his path as a musician. It is his dream to offer this same chance to young singers who aren’t sure where or how to start their journey as a vocalist/musician.
