Billy Stritch,"Kris Russell is always a memorable addition to our cast-party open mike nights in Las Vegas. Her lightly swinging style lights up the stage and I always love playing for her.   I'm always excited to see Kris Russell when I bring Cast Party NYC to Las Vegas! But then.....she sings...and everyone is over-the-moon! Kris brings such a great taste and style to her swinging singing-and an inherent understanding of the lyrics. Brava Kris!”
Down In Brazil Veteran Las Vegas based singer Kris Russell grew up in Sacramento with a passionate love of ballads, swing, cool jazz, bebop and traditional jazz inspired by the likes of Julie London, Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald. Continuing to establish herself as a timeless contemporary jazz vocalist in her own right, she follows her debut single “I Concentrate on You” with a sultry, soulful and exotic twist on Michael Franks’ travelogue classic “Down In Brazil.” Russell’s lighthearted, freewheeling version is fortified with a seamless blend of Fender Rhodes, acoustic guitar and smoky sax. Book your ticket now and venture “Down In Brazil” with this talented songstress! ~JONATHAN WIDRAN”
