    Got this great comment from a super cool guy who I'm sure I will jam with at some point in my life. Had to share it: From Josh Dierking: about an hour ago 7/9/2015 "Hey Christian, I'd love a CD if it's not too much trouble, and if you've got a shirt just in large I'll wear the fuck out of it. Just let me know what I owe you. I'll wear that fucker next month in KC when I see the Foos, I've got one hell of a man crush on Dave Grohl. I've got a back way into the arena so I should be able to get right down in front of the stage, I'll make sure he see's it, lol. I'm telling you though dude, Dave would love the shit out of "Rock Is Dead", pretty much goes hand in hand with the crusade he's been on the last several years. Anyhow, really dig your album, so diverse. My tastes run the gamut, everything from Pet Sounds era Beach Boys to Napalm Death (I'm a metalhead at heart), and the first track I pulled off your page, for whatever reason The Eagles of all things crossed my mind. Sorry to ramble, looking forward to taking your album for a deeper dive! And P.S. You put the former guitar player of Severed Soul to shame!"

    Fabulous record Christian! We need to figure out a way to get "Rock Is Dead" to Dave Grohl's ears, he would LOVE that track!

    Christian, my friends and I are loving "Betterkind" and "the Game" Also - 'Black Girl" is amazing. Will you be posting more songs from Shackleton, or do we have to wait for the record to be done? Thanks and please keep going!

“Christian Russell is a local artist I never really paid much attention to.....unitil I gave his songs a serious listen. The guy can flat-out write cool rock songs. "My Hotel" - his latest single, is a 5 minute twisting journey into the ever-shifting world of sub pop rock and roll - with his ever-present chainsaw guitar sound lining the fray. Check out his new album - said to be out in Feb 2013.”
