Casual Workforce (AKA Mike Russo) is a multi-instrumentalist musician, producer, and video maker from Melbourne. He makes evocative, dynamic music with trademark quirk and earnest atmosphere. Casual Workforce launched with an alt-rock LP in 2017 called Different Sides. The ten track debut showcased Russo’s unique approach to rock music while still wearing influences on his sleeve. Since his debut LP in 2017, Russo plays more piano to approach his songwriting, which has led to organs, synths, drum machines and altogether new ways to be inspired. His next slate of music, (likely an EP in early 2021) is primarily electronic compositions that experiment with dark pop.
