Russ Scalzo and The Hallmarks - Smash Records
Russ Scalzo

A frequent lecturer in Biblical Prophecy, Russ brings a lifetime of technical expertise to stories he believes may very well be the substance of tomorrow's headlines. On the Edge of Time began in 1994 as a 50-page short story named for the newspaper the protagonist writes for, "Chronicles of the End Times." After a few years, Russ resumed writing and ultimately split the completed novel On the Edge of Time into two captivating parts. 

In the 1960's and 70's, Russ Scalzo was the front man for The Hallmarks, a band popular along the Jersey Shore, and scored a record contract with Mercury Records. After a life changing decision, he went from performing in bars to ministering in churches and touring the country with his band, Saved By Grace. He has written too many songs to count, including music for several original musicals. He is the co-founder and president of a non-profit Christian theater company based in New Jersey, Lighthouse Stage Productions

Russ currently resides on the Jersey Shore with his wife of 50 years. He is a father of three and grandfather of four.
