Russell Blackman

Summer term 2024 sees Lewes Sings Gospel have a new choir director.  Russell has been involved with the choir as a stand in conductor over the last couple of years but now takes over the baton from Marsha Morrison.

Creative, Singer/Songwriter, Worship Leader, Teacher, Blogger, Mentor. Many things can be said about Russell, but his sole identity is found in being a son, a servant, and a student. He lives by a firm belief that He was created to love God and love people.

Russell has been involved in the performing arts from the age of 10, including leading ensemble groups and vocal coaching/arranging.

Russell was born and raised in Barbados and lived in the US and UK. After graduating from university in Texas, he was brought on staff as the Worship Arts Director at The People’s Cathedral in Barbados (the largest Pentecostal church in the Caribbean). In 2018, Russell released his debut album entitled, “One Shepherd Boy”, which he later won four Barbados Gospel Flame Awards for including Songwriter of The Year & Recording of The Year.

Russell is a great asset to lead Lewes Sings Gospel into its next season. We are excited to have him as our new Choir Director
