Song of the Week: Russell Elliot ‘I’ll Be Damned’

I haven’t properly written about Russell Elliot yet, although he’s been included on at least a two of my Queer Necessities playlists for Billboard Pride in past months. So, let’s change that.

The rising Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter makes punchy and emotional, soulful pop armed with soaring hooks, stomping choruses, atmospheric textures and diary-like undercurrents. You know, a mixed ball of all that greatness. You get it?

This month, Russell takes a simmering demand for closure and channels it into one of his strongest and most powerfully soulful performances yet with his latest release, “I’ll Be Damned,” this week’s Song of the Week. Giving shades of Boyz II Men, bolstered by even richer production and truly almighty delivery. That soaring bridge is especially devastating and gorgeous.

He’s without a doubt “One to Watch”… GET FAMILIAR!

Russell Elliot’s new single “I’ll Be Damned” is also available on Spotify and Apple Music!
