Russell Coson was born on March 9, 1989, and was raised in California's Bay Area. His hometown is San Jose, Ca. and he currently resides in the East Bay. Known as a "Rap Singer", Russ Coson's style can be described as a combination of smooth vocal delivery paired with edgy & provocative lyrics. He is also a beat producer, songwriter, and sound engineer.
Growing up, Coson would write and record his own songs as a hobby. Primarily listening to a mix of 90's R&B and West Coast Rap Music, Coson developed his own style of music and delivery through constant practice and trial and error. At age 14, he started rapping and producing his own beats in high school as a rapper by the name of Big Russ in 2003.
In 2013, Big Russ decided to pursue a professional career in music and changed his stage name to his real name, Russ Coson. With the change in name came a change in style with Russ incorporating more singing and less rapping into his tracks. By the end of 2014, Russ' song "Right Now" was selected as 106 KMEL's Bay Pick Of The Week, and had been listened to and shared nationwide over mainstream, online, and satellite radio. By 2015, Russ had developed a fan base that to this day continues to grow. So far, Russ Coson has had 6 of his songs aired on FM radio waves. With a "Pick of the Week" on 997 NOW and a feature on a "Home Turf" winner on 106 KMEL, Russ has made it clear that he can make radio hits, performing all throughout The Bay Area, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, and even Boston.
Today, he is an unsigned independent recording artist still making music and working to further his career. He has no plans of stopping and enjoys every minute of his musical journey.
