The LOVE LOVE story...

They were tasked with writing murder ballads and fell in love while writing their first, “Murderpedia.” Many love songs followed and now, more murder ballads. With a band that sometimes expands to 8 or 9 members, and with a sound that culls from traditional roots combined with alternative rock aesthetics, the “alt-Americana” LOVE LOVE has been critically acclaimed and well-received. Singer-songwriters Chris Toppin and Jefferson Riordan have now gathered more songs of murder, love, and the dark and light mysteries of life, resulting in the band’s long-awaited second album, “Picture,” due for release on May 5th 2018. They will be touring in support of the album this spring and summer. Address all inquiries to:

Additionally, Chudnofsky has written, recorded and produced Skypaint, an acclaimed rock opera that Jim Sullivan from the Boston Globe calls "terrific: immediately infectious, hard-rocking, and heartfelt. Skypaint may just be the best rock [or pop] opera by a small-scale band."

Other songs of Russell’s can be heard by his band the Medicine Chest and his instrumental project Big Sky Sounds.
Russell also plays with the Tim Gearan band most Friday nights at Atwoods in Cambridge at 877 Cambridge Street.

Russell has been teaching guitar lessons and group workshops for over 15 years.
