Social Robot is a friendly artificial life form that just wants to be polite and play guitar but is deeply worried about the fate of the universe. It keeps a stiff upper lip about it though. Social Robot’s album is now available on the interwebs, featuring songs about AI, one-way trips to Mars, social media, hope, and heartbreak.

Bayard Russell is a singer-songwriter performing in the NYC area with his band Social Robot, who have released their debut album “The Botz Sessions”. His solo album “Selftitled” is available on CD Baby and iTunes, about which Neufutur Magazine has said, “All that individuals need to do is stick the album in and be placed on clouds of indie rock that will float them along for the better part of an hour.”
Russell grew up in the suburbs of Indiana, influenced equally by The Beatles and Ice Cube. Classically trained in piano from age four, he discovered the guitar in high school and his passion for pop music blossomed. He moved to NYC after graduating from Dartmouth College with a major in philosophy and a minor in music. He currently writes and records out of his home studio in Brooklyn.
Bayard Russell has performed at New York venues such as The Way Station, Alphabet Lounge, Pianos, Arlene’s Grocery, Memory Motel, Amendment 18, Trash Bar, Sidewalk Cafe, Kenny’s Castaways, Bohemian Hall, Connelly’s Klub 45, Desmond’s Tavern, Bar East, Waltz-Astoria, Blackbirds, Lucky Mojos, and La Negrita; and in festivals like Make Music NY, LIC House Party, Why Leave Astoria, Astoria Music Now!, The Interdependence Project Festival, and the IMC Festival.
In addition to fronting Social Robot, Russell is a singer and bassist for 90s cover band Blind Folds Five. He has composed and performed with the bands Karess, Clean Slate, Funkelstiltskin, The Very Nerve, Matt Jones Band, Negative Ken, The Botz, Stirfry Massacre, Mark from 3A, Rockers Anonymous, and Atlantic Animals.
