MULTI-PLATFORM ARTIST & AUTHOR
Although Russell features on many websites this one will be the definite in-depth website about him as an established Multi-Platform Artist.
He is somewhat unique in many ways but there can't be too many multi platform artists whose output is worth more now that when it was originally released. Including records,books & artwork/photos 2016 saw him concentrate on photography and he was signed up by Saatchi Art where limited edition Canvases are available of some of his work. He is developing film projects he has wriiten and will direct in late 2018 early 2019. 2017 was his major book release year and in particular 'Novels'. His first novel 'Adventures of a Dark Duke: The Pin' got rave 5 star reviews at Amazon Uk and his novel masterpiece 'Kidnapping Time' followed suit racking up many 5 star reviews. Xmas 2017 saw a Pop Quiz/Trivia book 'Memories are Made of This (The Ultimate Retro Pop trivia Quiz Book)50's to 90's released and hitting the Amazon top 100
He will however still do other arts as well, such as photography & music, which he is well known for. If possible he wants to do a new Psykick Holday album (his current band) Below is a brand new video for the current single 'Numbers' which Russell counts amongst the best songs he has written (He has wriiten many that have been released)
Russell's first novel of 2018 is now out. Not one to stick to just one genre this one is a horror novel Mixing With The Unknown. It's very story driven and has many interwoven stories. Traditional horror staples like Vampires, Witchcraft, Possesion, Ghosts and more take new twists in this book. It also features his trademark erotic flavour as well. Link below to learn more details.It's on both paperback & e-book
The long awaited masterpiece by Russell C. Brennan Kidnapping Time was released in late 2017 ! Originally done as a film script the novel version has been getting preview readers hot under the collar for quite a while now. It's an exciting erotic Sci-Fi conspiracy thriller
Descendants of H.G. Wells & Leonardo Da Vinci build a Time Machine based on their famous ancestors' works. Rather than go through history eliminating evil dictators they decide they'd rather make love to the sexiest women in history instead.
However, they get more than they bargained for as they get caught up in some of the most famous conspiracies of the last 3,000 years from Cleopatra to Elizabeth 1st and beyond, with Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Jane Fonda, Princess Diana, The Kennedys and many more household names front and centre of some very interesting storylines. It also features a very poignant love story between Marilyn & Frank Sinatra as a core story.
The novel features lots of thrills and twists plus the author's trade mark tasteful ultra-erotic element. Although not a comedy story it has more funny moments in just one chapter than most comedy feature films, such as when Marilyn is kidnapped through time to this Century and even struggles to get a job as an M.M look-alike! The book is full of water-cooler moments that will leave you on a high with a smile on your face.
If you are already a fan of any of the characters mentioned you will love this book but always remember this is Science Fiction and although some things may seem familiar they are not always as they seem. History will never be the same again!

In brief, Russell started writing at an early age and sold his first film script and TV options at 17, whilst also establishing a career as D.J at night, eventually becoming one of the top D.j's in Europe. He then married a pop star 'Eleanor Rigby' and switched to producing records and writing songs which proved successful with 250 releases worldwide as producer and 50 as a songwriter. Along the way he wrote a successful fanzine 'Dedicated Follower' (That is now housed in the prestigious Victoria and Albert museum), as well as writing the book 'Music Business Bastards (How to do well in the music Industry without getting ripped off), which did really well and has been updated and released twice more. He also stumbled into photography and ended up taking some iconic images, with some being featured on album covers and posters etc, in 2016 he was signed up by Saatchi Art and also had a limited edition book release of his photos and lyrics called 'Voyeurs Welcome' which is just about to sell out.
In the 90's Russell ran a successful indie record label, 'Future Legend Records', helping to set new trends and create new music genres along the way. In recent years, apart from photography and still having a hand in music he returned to writing books and scripts and has a few films in the pipeline that he will direct as well. (He has in fact directed some popular pop videos before) We suppose we should also mention he has been in 2 or 3 bands as a musician, playing mainly Punk Cello and occasionally doing lead vocals.
His current band is Psykick Holiday who have a CD album out 'Forever Pop Noir' They recently had a top 20 indie hit in the U.S. with 'One Way Ticket to the Moon' and have a brand new double 'A' single just out 'San Francisco/Let's Go to San Francisco' to celebrate the 50th annivesary of Peace & Love.
