Benjamin Russell's muse has been like an elephant in the room. Touch the front left leg, it's a folk song, the trunk and it's a punk pop song, the right ear and it's avant electronic dance. What's a critic to do? Which bin do we file this in?

To make life easier for those less universal in their tastes, Russell has chosen to focus the laser of his creativity through a 3-faceted prism. He recently released a pop rock punk soul album called, SUNDOG, under his own name. Then there's GURU GROAN, his quirky electronic dance project with a recently released EP called, BUY THE BOMB. The third is the acoustic, RIVER OF STONE.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND" was the first single released. Watch the video.
