||04.04.00 Product News: Tim Russ Releases New CD
Tim Russ ("Tuvok" on Star Trek: Voyager) has taken time out from his busy filming schedule to record his first full-length music CD, simply entitled "Tim Russ." Where his first release, "Only a Dream in Rio," [right] contained four cover songs of various artists (James Taylor, Mark Knopfler, Randy Newman and Billy Joel) his new CD finds the multi-talented Russ expanding his sound, songwriting and song count.
The new CD features three original songs by Russ, and includes eight
additional songs written by a diverse range of artists from Cat Stevens and Bruce Hornsby to legendary blues singer/guitarist, Robert Johnson. Coincidentally, Tim was hired for his talent on guitar to portray Robert Johnson in the opening scenes of the motion picture, "Crossroads" (1986).
Tim sings and plays rhythm guitar on the album and is backed by Neil Norman and his Cosmic Orchestra, the band responsible for covering many of the Star Trek television and motion picture themes. "Tim Russ" is on the GNP-Crescendo Records label and can be purchased through his official Web site: www.timrusswebpage.com
