Russell Morris redefined himself and the Australian Blues genre in 2013 with the release of the landmark album ’Sharkmouth’.
By taking on the trappings of a husky-toned bluesman, he produced a powerful album steeped in Australian history. The stories, people and events of our collective history would see Russell collect the ARIA for BEST BLUES & ROOTS ALBUM (his first), and go on to be the biggest selling local & original release for that year.
He followed this success in 2014 with ‘Van Diemen’s Land’; an album whose panorama spanned colonial horrors to WW2 bombers and Japanese labour camps; dramas on river and sea and character portraits from Birdsville to Kings Cross. It went on to be Russell’s highest debuting album ever, receive another ARIA nomination for BEST BLUES & ROOTS ALBUM; win multiple Australian music awards and be the biggest selling blues album of the year.
In 2016, Russell completed his trilogy with the release of Red Dirt, Red Heart; filled with tales of bushrangers, jails, desert road trips and indigenous heroes. Again he collected the ARIA for BEST BLUES & ROOTS ALBUM, and again have a third consecutive best selling blues album of the year.
‘Ghosts & Legends’ is the culmination of Russell’s multi-award winning blues trilogy. It contains all three groundbreaking albums, including previously unreleased songs, a 56 page collector’s booklet featuring the stories of each song, lyrics and stunning colour photos. The Ghosts & Legends DVD is a must-have for any Morris or blues fan; featuring over 4 hours of music videos, album commentaries, live performances and insightful interviews.
