Aerosmith Touring Keyboardist Russ Irwin Gets the Blues Over ‘Manhattan’ in New Video

Russ Irwin

For about 15 years, Russ Irwin has made his living serving as the touring keyboardist for Aerosmith. Even though he’ll join them on the road this summer, the musician is ready to showcase his own talents, which are a little less rock oriented.

Irwin just debuted the video for his new single ‘Manhattan.’ It’s a bluesy piece with the singer sitting behind the piano, ruminating about how even though he’s frequently traveling the world and having adventures elsewhere, it’s the city itself that is the true love of his life.

The clip itself finds Irwin lounging around his house with girlfriend Carole Radziwell from Bravo’s ‘The Real Housewives of New York City.’ It also comes with a cameo appearance by trumpet player Chris Botti.

Irwin recently release a new 10-song disc called ‘Get Me Home’ that features guest contributions from Steven Tyler and Brad Whitford, as well as Stone Temple Pilots‘ Dean DeLeo and Botti. This marks his first solo release since 1991, as his life as a touring musician has cut down his time to work on his own music.

Irwin will spend the summer playing as part of Aerosmith’s ‘Global Warming‘ tour, and will make appearances on TV’s ‘The Real Housewives of New York,’ but is planning some solo dates in support of ‘Get Me Home’ later this year. The album is currently available digitally and on CD.
