When Russell Morris released ‘Sharkmouth’ in 2013 he delivered his biggest album of his near 50 year career.

‘Sharkmouth’, a blues record about colourful and notorious Australian characters, reached no 6 on the ARIA albums chart and gave Russell a platinum selling album.

When ‘Sharkmouth’ on conceived Russell envisioned a trilogy of albums that over time would tell unique Australian stories. In late 2015, the released the third album in the trilogy ‘Red Dirt Red Heart’.

‘Red Dirt Red Heart’ focuses on stories from Central Australia with a few personal observations thrown in for good measure. Like ‘Sharkmouth’ and ‘Van Diemen’s Land’, ‘Red Dirt Red Heart’ was once again produced by Mitch Cairns with the same band across all three albums.

The ‘Sharkmouth’, ‘Van Diemen’s Land’ and ‘Red Dirt Red Heart’ trilogy stands as Russell Morris’ greatest work and a unique music project for Australia.

Russell Morris and Mitch Cairns sat with Paul Cashmere to talk track by track about the stories from ‘Red Dirt Red Heart’.
