Russell Morris

We are happy to say Russell Morris is a proud Melburnian having lived in Melbourne all his life.

Russell Morris was born in Melbourne on the 31 July 1948. Morris' career started in 1966 with the formation of the Melbourne group Somebody's Image, which rose to prominence with a local hit version of the Joe South song "Hush."

He had five Australian Top 10 singles in 60s and 70s and best known for his hit songs, The Real Thing, Sweet Sweet Love and Wings of an Eagle.

The Real Thing was written by Johnny Young, produced by Ian Meldrum. The backing track was performed by The Groop, which included Brian Cadd, Richard Wright, Don Mudie plus Zoot guitarist Roger Hicks, who developed the acoustic guitar riff and backing vocalists Ronnie Charles, The Chiffons and Marcie and The Cookies Sue Brady and Judy Condon.



In July 2008, Russell Morris was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).
