Liam Russell (Titcomb) grew up completely immersed in art – his father was a folk singer and songwriter himself – practically splitting his time between being backstage and at school. Falling in love with songwriters like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell at a young age, his fate as an artist was sealed.
At 16-years-old, he released his first album in Canada, and he became a presence in his home country. He toured alongside established artists such as Great Big Sea, Tom Cochrane, David Usher & Colin James. In 2006, he even received a nomination for “Best New Group” or “Solo Artist” at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. His 2012 release, CICADA – his first full-length album for Nettwerk Records – marked a re-emergence for Russell, and he considers this album his proper introduction to the rest of the world.
