Russell Morris becomes the Real Thing with his latest blues album.
Russell Morris Sharkmouth Is The Biggest Australian Album Again
by Paul Cashmere on April 14, 2013
Aussie rock veteran Russell Morris has the number one Australian artist album on the ARIA chart for the second week in a row.
The 64-year Aussie legend’s Sharkmouth’ album is outselling hit names like Birds of Tokyo and Guy Sebastian and Australia’s international country superstar Keith Urban.
‘Sharkmouth’ was the album all of the major labels rejected. Three years ago Russell went to labels with the idea of releasing a uniquely Australian album of songs about the colour characters of the past. No-one bite.
