Live Music: Russick Smith

  • Outlier Cellars 141 South Main Street Mancos, CO, 81328 United States (map)

Russick Smith is multi-instrumentalist who walks between sentimental acoustic arrangements and modern electronic landscapes drawing inspiration from artists such as Air, Tin Hat Trio, and Edgar Meyer. In his live performances, Smith moves from soloist to orchestra when he begins to layer his cello to create ethereal atmospheres, augments those layers using mandolin, concertina, glockenspiel, guitar, and bass, then moves beyond looping to present more complex, genre-bending compositions. He has played for the Governor of Colorado, heads of the National Endowment for the Arts and Americans for the Arts, and acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma. In 2016, Smith was awarded “Best in Class” at the 2016 Vertex Musical Championships and winner of 2017 Breck’s Got Talent. He has additionally appeared as presenter at the Colorado Music Convergence, been featured on KDVR Denver’s “Everyday” show, and been hailed by the Denver Post as a “don’t-miss promise” for his performances with his group Tree-o.
