"Tom Russell is the last great American voice." Ken Bruen (The Dramatist, The Cross)

"How great is Tom Russell? Isn't he the best? I'd like to quit my job and travel with him...if the money can be worked out..." David Letterman, Late Night with David Letterman

The greatest living folk-country songwriter is a man named Tom Russell...John Swenson, Rolling Stone

Tom Russell is the best songwriter of the generation following Bob Dylan...The Montreal Gazette

"The Rose of Roscrae" - Recent 2015/2016 Reviews:

The #1 Album of the Year, The Irish Post, Joe Giltrap, Dec 19. 2015.

Los Angeles Times Top Ten Albums, Dec. 2015 : Masterful songwriter Russell enlists the help of friends and peers such as Maura O'Connell and others over a staggering 52 tracks in an extraordinary piece of Americana with an expansive narrative and scope. Randy Lewis

UNCUT Magazine "Album of the Month" - June 2015: It is an epic tale, a blend of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Berthold Brecht, Cormac McCarthy and Louis L'Amour, thick with references to U.S. history, music and myth...the scope is majestic, the ambition outrageous and the music magnificent. A unique accomplishment. Peter Watts

A bravely original epic. The Guardian, UK. 4/5 stars, April 10, 2015

A game changer - it could just be the single most important Americana release of all time.Folk Radio, UK

A bold two-disc country-folk-rock opera about a young 19th-century Irish immigrant drawn to a new life as a cowboy in the west after a failed love affair. It's a sprawling beast of an album and a remarkable piece of creativity.  Best Country Music Albums of 2015: The Telegraph UK

It is novelistic in scope, full of detailed historiography and musical verve, a proud addition to the great American tradition of the immigrant epic. Financial Times, UK, 4/15

This time, Russells previous western albums collide with Les Miserables and David Milchs "Deadwood." The result is a staggering feat of the imagination. No other living singer-songwriter even contemplates making albums like this one. Craig McDonald, Author, The Hector Lassiter Series

The journey is Homeric...Real and fictional characters are hard-stitched into his seamless narrative...soulful and moving for its reach...Russell's view of history may be romantic but it is also gritty as hell, and enduring. This is his masterpiece. Thom Jurek, All Music Guide, April 14, 2015

Russells Roscrae masterpiece, as well as his back catalogue, totally outstrips (so much of) the music by contemporaries that masquerades as Americana. Approached very much in the panoramic spirit of classical composer Aaron Copland...Arthur Wood, No Depression, April 2015

Subtitled A Ballad Of The West, this is an expansive, cowboy culture wonderland from the man they call Americas Greatest Living Songwriter. Maverick, UK, 5 Stars, 2015
