Russ began his piano lessons at 4 years old, got kicked out at 7, took up drums at 10 and at 12 started a short lived band with Michael J. Fox called “Walrus”. Later he wrote the inspirational songs, “Got a Song in My Heart”, “Wind of the Spirit”, “Dancing in a Field” and many others for a year round “camp in the city” program called Rise Up, this was his initiation as a recording artist.

From there he stuffed his young family into a motorhome and, armed with a slew of new material, toured across Canada for 5 years with the group Upstream. They hauled a 350 seat theatre from town to town and set up in mall parking lots hosting community celebrations.

It was these experiences that forged the Russ Rosen Band sound. Roots rock with a celtic Gospel twist. Percussive guitars and fierce drums anchoring the energetic folk songs.

Russ is a featured soloist with the Marcus Mosely Chorale and has shared the stage with several great BC entertainment hall of famers such as Jane Mortify, Shari Ulrich, Dee Daniels and others.
His super successful Christmas Tales show has toured Western Canada for the last 5 holiday seasons and is booking for the 2018 season.

The Vancouver Canada Day parade has had Russ and band bring the end of parade party for the last 9 years, setting hundreds of thousands of Vancouverites dancing in the streets which is pretty much what happens wherever Russ and his band of merry makers go.

Along with all of his music and merry making, Russ is now the artistic director of Bez Arts Hub in Langley, BC where he and his wife train and mentor emerging artists, host live music events, dance shows, workshops and all manner of arts and community interactions.
