Welcome to the ‘Sing’ section of the website!
Here you will find some of the songs I love singing, and some music from my sister too!
Oh and a flash mob! Take a look.
Oak Ash and Thorn
The Tree Song – by Rudyard Kipling
Bushes and Briars
Traditional English folk song in the woods
She moved through the tunnel
At the entrance to the ice house at Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire
Past Singing Projects
Past musical projects I have been involved with include;
In 2019 I was honoured to be asked to do some backing lyrics on the following album by my friend Dan Capp who is Wolcensmen
I sang on tracks 1,2,8 and 11
Also in the summer of the same year I was commissioned to re-write some lyrics to an old railway song and record them to be part of a larger soundscape at the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO world heritage site at the High Peak Junction in Derbyshire.
And here is my sound cloud with Bodhran songs!
The Russell Sisters
Beren and Lúthien
This is a song Alisa wrote based on the Tolkien poem Beren and Luthien, sang by Julie (together we are the folk band The Russell Sisters) The instrumentation gets going as the song goes on so please listen until the end 🎶 🧙🏻♂️This was Alisa’s first ever recording project so its kind of a rough mix. 🎶 All music is composed, performed, recorded and arranged by Alisa (apart from the singing!) Lyrics from The tale of Beren and Lúthien by J.R.R. Tolkien
Blackbirds and Thrushes
Vocals: Julie Russell Harp and musical arrangement: Alisa Marie Russell
Downloads coming soon!
A few of us from our singing group went to sing at the railway station at night. Great acoustics!

“I’ve just come back from a flash mob community sing in Nottingham with Julie of Eat Bake Sing. What a high! Singing songs with friends, old and new, in a beautiful acoustic space, in public, was just so freeing… I cannot wait to experience that again!”Katie G
“It was great my little girl loved it… The music was great to find it hard to believe that it was all done on the spot. I will [definitely] be going to another soon x”Andy W
