Russ Kendrick Martin is a Michigan-based songwriter and performer with a ripped-from-the-headlines approach to his craft.

He has toured extensively with The Low-Budget Roadshow--a one-man performance that features a stripped down take on his original songs, along with a fresh approach to storytelling.

Russ is a seasoned entertainer, singer and multi-instrumentalist who brings his songs to life on guitar, piano, harmonica and ukulele --He has performed on stages in the biggest music centers in the U.S., including Nashville, TN, Chicago, IL and Athens, Ga.--

His success as a songwriter is due, in part, to his years of working as a broadcast journalist at a small town radio station; Life as a reporter provided plenty of material for Martin's character-driven story songs.

A former welder, carpenter, farmhand and truck driver, He also weaves the blue collar experience into his tunes.

Russ signed with Nashville-based Lower Broadway Records in late 2016—The label released his latest album Road Poems in November 2018.
