Award-winning musician to perform at Pure Life

Published 9:15 pm Tuesday, September 25, 2018

A critically acclaimed, award-winning vocalist, guitarist and composer will bring a fresh sound to Pure Life Studios in LaGrange, on Thursday, Sept. 25th at 7:30 p.m. 

Woody Russell blurs the lines between jazz, R&B and folk. Growing up in a small college town in Montana, Russell was surrounded by the natural beauty of big sky country. What he was not surrounded by was a culture of the arts, of jazz and certainly not a live music scene of any sort. Nonetheless, music was a deeply fundamental part of his childhood experience by way of a modest but diverse collection of albums, FM radio and a family’s appreciation for music.

“I was, I still am, fascinated by music and musicians,” Woody said. “It was present in everything in my life, both the internal, as well as, the beautiful outdoor world that I grew up exploring. It held such a grip on my imagination. If I wasn’t actively listening to something, I was singing, finding my way around the guitar or creating recordings on my desktop cassette recorder. I cherished that little machine.”

The concert will be at Pure Life Studios, an acoustic listening room, located at 206 Clark St. in the Hillside Neighborhood of LaGrange. Backyard and dinner will start at 6 p.m. with fresh, authentic southern California tacos. $2 tacos and $10 plates are available for purchase for cash only.
