About Bill Russell
Bill's love for voice acting, and drive for success, is what has inspired him to venture out and establish himself as (Website hidden)
He was extremely blessed to be selected to narrate four books by best-selling Christian author, Sarah Young: Jesus Lives and Jesus Today. Her book for 2016, Jesus Always and her first book Jesus Calling. Thomas Nelson Publishing selected him again, along with Brilliance Audio, to narrate Searching for Jesus by Robert J. Hutchinson. Bill is also a regular contributing voice for the global children's audiobook app, (Website hidden), where has narrated over 130 audiobooks and written five sing-along songbooks.
In August of 2015, Bill was selected to co-star opposite Jonathan Jackson in the TV series Nashville, where he played Brian, a jingle producer. His time with the show consisted of two episodes: Unguarded Moments and Three's A Crowd. The show will finish up its 4th season in 2016 and, of course, Bill is keeping his fingers crossed for a reprisal.
Bill’s love, though, has been voice acting and music. He was commissioned to write the theme song Better Than Ever for the Voice2014 Convention held in Anaheim and produced a video to accompany the song, which you can view on his website (Website hidden). Leading up to the event, he also co-produced his first children's CD/EP, with Sean O'Bryan Smith, entitled I See Dinosaurs With My Eyes Closed, available on iTunes.
A new company in Nashville, ANAM Multimedia, is gathering steam in the film world. Head producer, Sean O'Bryan Smith, has added Bill as voice actor for their creative team. With his ability to morph into such a wide array of characters, ANAM Multimedia couldn't be happier to include Bill in this amazing creative group.
Bill's work is not finished, rather always beginning, striving to be the best he can be. That drive and tenacity to succeed is what makes this the best job in the world for him. No dream is too far, no job is too big for this man of many talents.

Bills voice is filled with warm and friendliness. His narration displays a nice balance of professionalism and personal care for his work.Laura Minchew, Sr. Vice President & PublisherThomas Nelson
We had the extremely pleasurable experience of working with Bill Russell as one of the featured entertainers for our International Voiceover convention. His professionalism is of the highest level and his stage presence is captivating and loads of fun. And his original music .. well, that’s a story unto itself. When we suggested the idea of Bill composing a theme song for our convention, we expected something nice, but that’s not what we got! Bill went way beyond the call of duty and wrote an extremely catchy tune with great lyrics and full orchestration. His song was a hit at our convention, and we expect it will be a hit everywhere it is heard. We have only the highest praise and recommendation for Bill Russell. Book him now, while you can still afford him!James Alburger, Executive Producer, VoiceOver International, Creative Experience and VoiceActing Academy
Bill Russell was a delight to work with while doing our Poolside commercial. He was open to our suggestions in line inflection changes when we asked. I highly recommend Bill Russell – he is a man of many voices, always returned work in a timely manner, and was very easy to work with.Janis Ehrat, Owner Aqua, Anchors/PoolSide
