About Russell

I've been an independent artist for over 20 years and grew audiences in Texas, California and the Pacific Northwest.  My experience in musical performance and studio production opened the door for me to support independent media such as podcasts, online videos, and courses.  I prioritize projects that are socially conscious.  

In 2021, I moved from the west coast with my family to Lexington, Kentucky.  It was at this time that I founded Buyride Productions as a music production house specializing in original music for educational videos, online classes, audiobooks, commercials, and podcasts.  I believe that quality audio can set your project apart, and amplify your message.
