Brenda Russell - Did You Know?May 12, 2019

Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about American singer, songwriter and keyboardist, Brenda Russell.




Brenda Russell is an American singer, songwriter and keyboardist, with a diverse musical style which encompasses pop, dance, soul and jazz.

Jeffrey Hall and Scott Cuter composed the music for the song "Piano In The Dark" by Brenda Russell, and then sent the music to Russell and she added the lyrics.

Russell wasn't sure at first what piano in the dark meant, but when she started writing the lyrics, the story began to evolve. According to Russell, "Piano In The Dark" tells the story of a woman whose lover plays piano. She wants to leave him, because she's really kind of bored, but every time she does that, he sits down and starts playing, and this way sucks her right back in.

She's so in love with the way he plays, and he plays in the dark, theoretically.
