A multi-instrumentalist and composer from Huntington, Long Island, Russ Flynn contributed to numerous musical projects both on-campus and in Burlington's thriving music scene during his time at UVM. He performed in popular bands such as Roku and Premarital Sextet in downtown clubs like Nectar's and the Radio Bean.

Russ has developed a sophisticated yet naturally flowing compositional style. In fall 2008 he began graduate study with acclaimed composer Michael Philip Mossman at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College in New York City, and earned his M.M. in Jazz Composition and Arranging in 2010. In addition to his work as a producer and composer, he is currently the touring guitarist with rock band X Ambassadors. Check out their recent performance on the Seth Meyers show!
