The Russells is a legendary gospel group that has been rooted in Quartet Gospel all their lives. Dr. W.L. Russell, “Paw Paw” their late father, inspired them by spreading the gospel through preaching and singing in a group named “The Morning Stars.” The sons of the members of the group then started a group called “The Sons of the Stars” releasing two studio recordings in the 1980’s and traveling the country spreading their message through song. It was always the dream of Dr. Russell to have his five boys sing together in a group of their own and when he went to be with the Lord in December of 1997 the “boys” did just that. Mack Charles, Billy, Kevin, Michael, Will, Reggie, and James established The Russells in 1998 recording their first studio and live project “See You On the Other Side.” They followed up with their second project “Faith” in 2004 originally self released by At Your Word Records and later distributed by Malaco Records through the Phoenix Entertainment Group. They have performed with some of the gospel greats and continue to spread their message with a “Gospel Soul” sound fused with soul, blues, funk, quartet, and traditional gospel music.
