REVIEW: Russello Project transports Scranton crowd to another world with introspective tunes...

-Justin Jones, NEPA Scene (2021)

"Rock/jazz hybrid The Russello Project played gut-wrenching sets that cut through any superficial musical pretense and laid bare the heart of players seeking an almost spiritual connection through their craft. The Russello Project is, simply put, a musician’s delight. The outfit offers shredding without the extraneous look-at-me wanking: vital, melodic hooks and atmospheric ambience – sort of an aural movie unfolding where the plot is anyone’s guess."

-Mark Uricheck, NEPA Scene (2015)

"A calm silence fell over the crowd as the band played their set – very unusual for any kind of bar atmosphere. Other than the music itself, you could hear a pin drop as they played their signature piece, “Sky.” " 

-Ken Jones, NEPA Scene (2019)

"The Russello Project is hands down, one of the most talented instrumental rock band I’ve come across."

-Kevin Vogrin, Filmmaking and Fine Art Photography (2014)

"...Guitar-based instrumental rock group The Russello Project just released a live video of their original song “54” ... that shows off exactly why frontman Charlie Russello was named Guitarist of the Year at the 2014 Steamtown Music Awards."

-Rich Howells, NEPA Scene (2015)

The decision paid off, because Mr. Russello said he’s being recognized for his work more than at any other time in his career. The upcoming Electric City Music Conference nominated him for guitarist of year, while the Russello Project is up for best band. The band will perform at the conference, and Mr. Russello will teach a guitar master glass." 

-Josh Mcauliffe, Scranton Times/Tribune (2014)
