Geils Band, and John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revivial,

Russell played guitar for Lori McKenna on the Faith Hill/Tim McGraw Soul to Soul II tour, the largest country music tour in history. He has also appeared at The Grand Ole Opry, Lincoln Center in New York City, and on Good Morning America with McKenna.

Additionally, Chudnofsky has written, recorded and produced Skypaint, an acclaimed rock opera that Jim Sullivan from the Boston Globe calls "terrific: immediately infectious, hard-rocking, and heartfelt. Skypaint may just be the best rock [or pop] opera by a small-scale band."

Other songs of Russell’s can be heard by his band the Medicine Chest and his instrumental project Big Sky Sounds.

Russell also plays with the Tim Gearan band most Friday nights at Atwoods in Cambridge at 877 Cambridge Street.

Russell has been teaching guitar lessons and group workshops for over 15 years. Feel free to contact him at for info on scheduling a guitar lesson or workshop.
