Russ Lacasse was born and raised in southern New England. He moved to Mohave County in 2004.
Lacasse’s love of songwriting took a serious turn at the Martha’s Vineyard Songwriter’s Festival 2016 when the panel of hit writers favorably critiqued his song ‘9 Millionth Time’.
One of those hit writers suggested that Lacasse make the move to Nashville to grow as a writer with his peers.
Living in Nashville since October 2016, Lacasse has had multiple songs held by artists and publishers for consideration. Earning him 6 cuts by other artists all due for release in 2019. He was nominated for song of the year in the traditional country category for his song ‘I Close My Eyes’ by the Tennessee Songwriters Association International.
While working for a major cut, Lacasse shares the song pitch process and connections with his friends to get their songs heard.
Lacasse has hosted a Songwriters show, Russ & Friends Weekend Kickoff Show (follow on Facebook) at Belcourt Taps Nashville for over a year. His show is recorded and broadcast worldwide on WFMC internet radio (WFMCJams.com) to over 54 countries every Thursday 5-7pm central time.
This show has opened a door internationally for his first record, ‘Tender’ to be aired in Germany and the Netherlands.
When not playing you can find him cheering his friends on at local venues in Nashville.
