I am Warren (“Chip”) Russell. I retired from the US Army in 2009 after a 23-year career, most of that as a guitar player in various US Army bands in several different countries. A musician by both profession and temperament, I am now an independent music professional with multiple musical irons in the fire at any given moment. On a personal note, I am pretty content with where my life seems to be taking me. I am very happily married to a wonderfully engaging, highly intelligent, and undeniably beautiful woman in Renée. She and I currently make our home in Yorktown, Virginia. I have three very bright and talented children from a previous marriage, grown now and moved away, and two awesome grandsons thus far.
