Australian music legend Russell Morris continues his tour of The America’s with two shows in Brazil on the weekend.

Morris performed at the Avenida Paulista Festival in Sao Paulo after having just showcased in Nashville and earlier Toronto, Canada for Canadian Music Week.

The visit marks the American release of ‘Sharkmouth’, the first album in Russell’s blues trilogy.

The albums ‘Sharkmouth’, ‘Van Diemen’s Land’ and the current ‘Red Dirt Red Heart’ have become the most success albums of Russell’s almost 50 year career. Collectively the albums have made him the biggest seller male artist with original material in Australia for the past five years.

‘Red Dirt Red Heart’, the third album in the series, clocked up 30 weeks on the ARIA chart this week and is sitting at number one on the ARIA Jazz and Blues album chart.
