Anytime Anyplace But Only You
Hard-driving and heartfelt originals, acoustic honky-tonk and country-flavored ballads with clever bluegrass covers of American popular music
Anytime Anyplace But Only You is the new solo project from Grass Cats front man, Russell Johnson. A compelling songwriter and singer, Russell is blessed with an immediately recognizable and bluesy tenor voice.
Stretching the boundaries of the bluegrass repertoire, while maintaining a respectful link to the music’s
heritage, he showcases a broad range of material with his soulful tenor. His soaring lead vocal on the banjo-driven
title cut and the purity and ache in his delivery on "I Need To Know", serve as a testament to his
commitment to traditional and classic bluegrass. Yet effortlessly, his voice can take on a deeper more resonant
quality as he renders songs from other music genres such as the Dean Martin classic "Sway", Maroon 5’s "This
Love" or Shaggy’s "Strength of a Woman". Having written or co-written half the tracks on the disc he covers a
lot of ground with songs of love and heartbreak, wasted lives and even an anthem to bluegrass itself. Some of
bluegrass music’s brightest new stars and seasoned veteran musicians joined Russell on the recording. Stellar
instrumental performances and inspired vocals highlight the disc that is being described as Russell’s best
recording in his twenty plus year career.
