Kian Russell was born in Northampton, England, to an Irish mother and English father.
Although he started playing the guitar at 7 years old, Kian's first love was Rugby. At the age of 8, Kian was diagnosed with a very rare bone disorder in his foot which stopped him playing all sport, even walking wasn't allowed for a year!
It was during this time his passion for the guitar truly started to grow.
Kian spent several years under the guidance of Anthony George back in his native England. Then a move to Tacoma, WA, USA saw him elevate his skill set and creativity in both guitar playing and songwriting. Rafe Wadleigh took Kian to another level. After a few years, Rafe recommended him to Charlie Shaughnessy to further his abilities.
Today Kian has positioned himself as a bright up and coming guitarist that has attracted the eye of Seattle's Ayron Jones - Seattle's modern day answer to Jimi Hendrix. He does covers but his desire is to be original, produce work that is him and not someone else.
Kian's passion runs deep, haven given up a potentially good career in US Rugby to pursue full time his love of music and playing the guitar. this is his passion, this is where he wants to be.
