​Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) was one of the most influential guitarists in the revival of blues in the 1980s. SRV received 6 Grammy Awards, 10 Austin City Music awards and an induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before his death in a helicopter crash on August 27, 1990, at the age of 35. On a personal level, our own BLUE FROG MC, David Chesney in his former role as A&R person for CBS records was partially responsible for “discovering” SRV and had the honour of presenting SRV with his first ever Gold Record.

LOVESTRUCK celebrates the music of the Legendary Stevie Ray Vaughn, and taps into the fire and passion of this incredible artist who left us way to soon. Russell Earl Marsland and LOVESTRUCK pays respect to the life of SRV through his classics such as “Cold Shot”, “Pride & Joy”, “Couldn’t Stand the Weather”, “The House is Rockin’”, and of course, “Love Struck Baby”

Vocalist and guitar virtuoso Russell Earl Marsland has been a powerful presence in the Vancouver music scene for more than 30 years. In 1978 Russell co-founded Vancouver’s legendary R&B All Stars. Russell has performed with hundreds of artists, and has shared the stage with the Allman Brothers, BB King, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, and Steppenwolf, to name a few. Joining Russell is an all-star band consisting of Kerry Galloway (Bass), Kyle Randomsky (Drums) and Chris Gestrin (Hammond Organ).

Russell and SRV both had much love and respect for Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Albert Collins, Albert King along with Wes Montgomery, Dick Dale and many other guitar greats!
