SHARKMOUTH - THE LATEST ALBUM BY RUSSELL MORRIS

Sharkmouth is the latest album from one of this country's greatest and most respected singer/songwriters, Russell Morris. The project was created after Russell had read about a 1920's Gangster from Sydney, Shark Jaws..

This was the driving force behind a want to create an album including Australian characters from the 1920/30's era..

As producer (and bass player), Mitch Cairns, explains: "To our knowledge, most "Australiana" characters have been portrayed in a traditional colonial folk sense, so we wanted to find a way to deliver the stories in a more mainstream vein whilst still placing them in a "vintage era"..  A blues style seemed to be the perfect fit!!

We tried to keep the vibe of the album raw and honest with lots of textural instruments and sounds..
But above all, it had to be simple and spacious.  We are also very honoured to have some very special guests on the album, including Troy Cassar-Daley, Mark Lizotte and Renee Geyer."

Produced by - Mitch Cairns
Guitars - Shannon Bourne
Drums - Adrian Violi
Bass - Mitch Cairns
Keys - James Black/Mitch Cairns
Harmonica - Chris Wilson
The album Sharkmouth has stories about Australian characters like:
  • Phar Lap (Big Red)
  • Les Darcy
  • The Dock Wars (Bout To Break)
  • Mr Eternity
  • The Great Depression (Big House)
  • Squizzy Taylor

All moulded together in a melting pot of swinging shuffles and delta grooves..
