Russell deCarle is a founding member, lead vocalist, bassist, and contributing songwriter to the multi-platinum, Juno award winning, country-roots group Prairie Oyster.

Russell’s solo project, Under The Big Big Sky, is a distinct departure from the sound of the band, and features jazz and torch-blues influenced vocals on nine of eleven self-penned originals. The deep groove of the unique live trio instrumentation (rhythm acoustic guitar, lead acoustic guitar, and accordion) brings to life material from the record, timeless classics of the 50s and 60s, and selected covers of musical friends and influences.

The sound is a celebration and culmination of a lifetime of music, including a time when Buck Owens, The Beatles, and Frank Sinatra could all be heard played back to back on the radio.
