Russell deCarle

Russell deCarle’s songwriting offers a fluent collection of songs that mix southern soul and restrained balladry, with obvious touches of jazz, blues, old-school country, and western swing. To those who remember deCarle as the lead vocalist and bassist of the iconic Canadian country roots band Prairie Oyster, deCarle’s warm, burnished and intimate voice has always honoured an eclectic range of songs. Backed by solid musicians, we are excited to have Russell bring his songs and stories to our stages at Mission.
