Event Information

The Festival is proud to induct Aria Hall of Fame inductee, #1 selling Platinum artist and Australian Icon, Russell Morris, to the Parkes Elvis Festival Wall of Fame.  To celebrate this acheivement, Russell will be performing an intimate 60 minute performance at Parkes Services Club following the Elvis Wall of Fame event.

Shooting to fame in the middle 60’s with Somebody’s Image, Russell had a string of hits including Hush and the Bob Dylan classic Baby Blue.

Following that, Russell penned breakthrough hits such as; 

Sweet Sweet Love, Wings of an Eagle, Rachel, Part 3 into Paper Walls, The Girl That I Love and many many more.........

In 1969 he and producer Molly Meldrum released “The Real Thing”, Australia’s only true psychedelic #1 hit and a song that is played regularly on commercial radio to this day. 

Russell's music is close to the heart of Parkes as in  2001, Morris' "The Real Thing" and "Wings of an Eagle" featured prominently in the Australian-made movie The Dish

Russell went on to capture the hearts and imagination of Australians in 2012 when he unveiled 'Sharkmouth', the first of a trilogy of albums re-telling some amazing stories in Australia's distant past-some famous, some not so famous-creating a historical document using blues and rock, followed by "Van Diemen's Land" in 2014, this time covering great Australian characters and stories including Breaker Morant, Sandakan, the Eureka Stockade and many more.  

In 2015 Russell Released the third Album in his Blues Trilogy Red Dirt – Red Heart Debuting at 6 on the National Aria Charts and still going strong in the charts today hitting the #1 on the National Aria Blues/Jazz Charts.

Constantly in demand, Russell stills tours nationally throughout the year as well as appearances internationally. Russell has worked alongside industry heavyweights like Cher, The Bee Gees, Linda Ronstadt, The Beach Boys and toured Australia with the hugely successful “Long Way To The Top” in 2012.

Russell's appearance at Parkes Elvis Festival is a unique duo show where you will get to witness the man behind the music.
