A veteran New York blues player, Russell "Hitman" Alexander has performed at clubs and venues ranging from after-hours dives in Alphabet City and late night bars in Harlem, to the Royal Ball for the Prince of Malta and the Quadcentennial Ball for the Prince of Spain.


He has had four successful tours of the U.K. (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2011), and one in Europe (summer of 2008), playing at numerous clubs and festivals.  This included the Great British R&B Festival at Colne, the Eel Pie Club, The Limelight Theater, the BluesExpress Festival in Luxembourg, the Maryport Blues Festival (Main Stage), and many others.
His latest release, "Pale Rider", was in the running for four Grammy nominations.  The upcoming release "Blues Enough" is generating even more excitement!


Hitman says “Over the last twenty five years, I’ve been fortunate to have played with or opposite great musicians, on more stages, and with more great acts than I could ever hope for."  This includes Johnny Copeland, Lavette Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, The Coasters, The Ink Spots, and Whitney Houston.
