I met Russ a few years ago at church and was immediately impressed with his ability and talent. He has a sweet touch on the guitar and the mandolin. If I needed lyrics or guitar/mandolin tracks, Russ is the guy I would call. He also does a great job laying down tracks and then bringing them all together in an amazing way for a great final product. I’ve been around guitar and mandolin players all of my life and I would have to say Russ is one of the best I’ve ever heard. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Russ Freeman for your music writing and producing projects. Dr H David Crowe
I highly recommend Russ Freeman. He is an incredibly talented musician. A friend from Cuba sent me a recording he was working on and Russ added mandolin with no music, only listening to what was already recorded. Absolutely amazing sound.
