Local Spotlight – Dave Russell


Tune in all this week as Jay features Dave Russell, from Windsor on the Local Spotlight – daily at 3:40 during Weekdaze! This week, we’re spinning his brand new single “Comeback Town”

Dave4 RI grew up in a small town on the shores of the St. Clair River in southern Ontario. I draw a lot of inspiration from that time and place. My new EP “Deep Talk in Shallow Water” reflects that. Small town ethos paired with honest song-writing. I’m proud of this record which was recorded in nearby Sarnia, Ontario.

My band is called the Precious Stones. They make me sound good. Thanks guys.

I can be found almost nightly in and around Windsor, Ontario at pubs and live venues. I’ve toured throughout Canada and am looking to do more touring in the future. I play shows with my band as well more intimate solo performances.

I’ve opened up for Joel plaskett, Strumbellas, The Deep Dark Woods, Tim Chaisson, & Library Voices; as well as shared festival stages with Sam Robers Band, Our Lady Peace, Big Sugar, Sarah Harmer, Alex Cuba, Fitz and the Tantrums and Kathleen Edwards.
