American troubadour Tom Russell, regarded as one of the finest songwriters of his generation, returns with October in the Railroad Earth via Proper Records.

The new studio album comprises ten original Tom Russell songs, including the title track from the Irish film Small Engine Repair and features Bill Kirchen on lead electric guitar, Eliza Gilkyson on backing vocals and the Grammy Award winning Texmaniacs.

Russell describes the songs and sound as: "Jack Kerouac meets Johnny Cash...in Bakersfield".
