Tom's latest release, ""October in the Railroad Earth" has been receiving some fantastic reviews:-
 
An outstanding record from an exceptional songwriter... It takes some sand to put out an album that shoots for “Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash in Bakersfield”. Tom Russell’s extensive resume and impeccable pedigree notwithstanding, it’s a high bar to set. The songs on his new album ‘October in the Railroad Earth’ easily sail over that bar. Americana UK Feb. 2019
 
 Celebrated singer-songwriter, artist and author on reassuringly vivid form. Russell has made a career from surveying the mythic aspects of America.

    Tom Russell's new record of originals, "Folk Hotel," was released Sept 8, 2017. This followed the release in May 2017 of his Ian and Sylvia Tribute "Play One More - The Songs of Ian and Sylvia," which was the #1 played Folk DJ record in the world in June 2017.

    "Folk Hotel" includes 13 new Tom Russell originals and a duet of Bob Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" with Joe Ely. Augie Meyers, Eliza Gilkyson, Redd Volkaert, and Joel Guzman also appear on the record.

    "Folk Hotel is almost certainly the best Americana album of 2017 and the lyrics are some of the very best of the last decade. Tom Russell is one of the key songwriters of the last twenty years or so. He must now be included on any list of great songwriters which would also include important people like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams"
