Russ and Huck are proud to be voted #1 overall local artist in Indy by the readers of NUVO Magazine! It’s all thanks to our amazing fans! Go ahead, take a look at what NUVO says about us!
“Out of all the bands, all the solo artists, all the collectives, you picked Russ Baum and Huck Finn as your favorite artists in all of Indianapolis. Good job, Indianapolis! You picked a hardworking pair that put in major stage time, work on building intimate connections with their (large) fanbase, and have coined their very own genre: folk energy and mayhem. Come out to a show and meet silent third member Jim Danglebones … and maybe they’ll give you the Key of Mayhem. Don’t understand? You will as soon as you hit up a Russ Baum and Huck Finn show.”
One Hit is our first release recorded in 2012. We love our roots and love to share this raw album with our fans! It’s got crowd favorites $19.10, Gettin Drunk and Doin Drugs (down by the river) and Shake.
Russ Baum and Huck Finn have been on this journey since June of 2011. Both coming from different paths, they formed this high-energy act, which they have dubbed “Folk Energy & Mayhem”, and have not looked back since. Blazing a trail around the central Midwest, they have went from a local bar act to a regional act with in months using their clever craftsmanship and extreme songwriting abilities! An exciting and fun moving act, they leave audiences everywhere dancing, smiling, and singing along to their music. The sound that they come at with is amazing! For two guys with an acoustic guitar and a djembe, these guys “put it out there” using no effects; they just hit you with clean sound and crisp vocals. Their shows are captivating and very moving. Their style and demeanor is very real, and it shows in the original music they give you. This is one of those acts that is unlike most that come around. To see, to hear, to feel Russ Baum & Huck Finn, is to experience them and understand just how special these two are.
