In case you don't know her Russian Red is the pseudonym of Lourdes Hernández, borni in Madrid, Spain in 1986, she is an indie and folk singer-songwriter.
So Spanish young lady, Russian sounding name singing in English, nothing unusual there.
Known by many as the Spanish Feist, in reference to the Canadian singer-songwriter who inspires her in many of her attitudes on the microphone, Hernández—who writes and sings all of her compositions in English—states that she sings in that language instinctively because she has always listened to music in English. Her voice and performing style are also reminiscent of the childlike and simple, poetic approach utilized by California singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom. [Wikipedia]
Give her a listen, and check out her new album Fuerteventura, you will be glad you did.
