Russell Fry epitomizes the idea that inspiration can be found in unlikely places. He’s a rare combination of business savvy and creative af, which is why his speakers with swagger can be found in places like the Gansevoort Hotel and in the hands of people like Shaq & Bruno Mars. Curious Provisions boomboxes turn heads not only because they are handcrafted using rare vintage suitcases, but also because they. sound. dope. We spent a day in his colorful Santa Monica showroom and gained a massive amount of respect for Russell, who has navigated career changes, started multiple businesses, and turned his passion for music into a one-of-a-kind, culture defining product.
