It all started of course over 50 years ago when Russell Morris became the first Australian artist to score consecutive number one singles with his first two releases – ‘The Real Thing’, which is one of the classic psychedelic singles of all time, and ‘Part Three Into Paper Walls’. Both reached #1 on the Australian chart, and what followed has become one of the most remarkable stories in contemporary Australian music.

Fast forward to October 2012, when Russell Morris began a trilogy of albums, each with a theme of Australian stories. The first, Sharkmouth, is a collection of tracks about the Australia of the 1920s and 1930s. The album went on to reach #6 on the ARIA Chart, and is certified platinum.

Then came Van Diemen’s Land in 2014 which focused on significant events rather than the stories of individuals. From the prison ships that began Australia as a penal settlement, to the union strikes, the First and Second World Wars, Van Diemen’s Land covers a vast array of Australian history.

And in 2015 Russell released Red Dirt – Red Heart, with amazing musical stories with unique Australian themes which won the coveted Best Blues And Roots Album at the 2016 ARIA Awards.His most recent album, ‘Black and Blue Heart’, was produced by the legendary Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam) alongside Bernard Fanning, and backed by a dream studio band (Declan Kelly on drums, Wolfmother’s Ian Peres on keyboards, Matt Englebrecht on bass, and Dan Kelly on guitar). With ‘Black and Blue Heart’ Russell continues to find unique ways to challenge himself creatively.And through it all, Russell remains one of the hardest working musicians in the country. For some Artists a new album can write itself after almost six decades on the road but it takes a rare combination of talent and circumstances to realise that vision as vividly and succinctly as Russell Morris does.

Russell returned as Jack Chrome delivering his own genre of Psychedelia - Infused Blues as he revisits his alter-ego  in this follow up to the acclaimed album he penned with Rick Springfield in 2021 - 'Jack Chrome & The Darkness Waltz'.

'The Dreams of Jack Chrome' continues as Russell collaborates with long-time member, Pete Robinson released 2022.  Along with eight stunning originals, Russell reimagines two immovable classics for the first time... 'Horse With No Name' by America and Jumpin'Jack Flash' of The Rolling Stones fame.

Rai grew up in Sydney, Australia. His mother was a classical piano teacher, and his father was a language teacher who played bass and guitar in local rock bands. Influenced by his parents, Rai developed an appreciation for a wide variety of music, including classical, rock, pop and jazz.

After high school, Rai was awarded a scholarship to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music where he studied jazz piano. But before he could finish the program, Rai came to the attention of Columbia Records in the US, and signed his first record deal.
Before his first album was released, however, Columbia Records experienced a management shake-up, and Rai was released from his contract. He returned to Australia and started Thirsty Merc, a rock band which over the next ten years would release three successful albums (one platinum, one double-platinum in Australia).

After the third album with his band, Rai decided to take a break to focus on writing music that incorporated jazz and his other early influences. In 2012, Rai came to Los Angeles and started writing and performing extensively, landing opening slots on tours with Bernhoft and Oh Land. His music soon attracted the attention of the LA music community including tastemakers like Chris Douridas of KCRW.Rai released three EPs under the moniker “Sun Rai,” as well as an album of live- in-the-studio recordings. But to avoid confusion with the artist Sun Ra, Rai began using his given name.
Rai continues to work with Thirsty Merc, and splits his time between Sydney and overseas touring with legendary guitarist Joe Satriani. Look for Rai to be releasing new music in the coming months!
