Since their inception in 2009, Silent Planet has never looked for handouts. Initially the band slowly gained traction playing local venues throughout California, subsequently expanding to DIY touring throughout the States. The band first gained prominence due to their vast array of intellectual influences, anchored by Russell’s masters degree in psychology and field experience as a mental health therapist.
However, it is their remarkably intimate connection with their listeners (who they often refer to as Lovers, eschewing the term fans) that has become their trademark in the music scene. Perhaps no single event better speaks to their grassroots base than their surprise, underdog victory of 'Underground Band of the Year' at the 2017 APMA awards.
