Following her critically acclaimed CD Something More, co-produced by Pat McInerney (Nanci Griffith), Hagen released Sundown Till Dawn, a CD that garnered rave reviews and radio play across the country. Sundown Till Dawn is extremely personal, with the title track written about her mother who suffers with Alzheimer's Disease. The emotionally charged ballad is included on the soundtrack of a film called "10 Mountains 10 Years" chronicling the journey of a group of mountain climbers who are raising awareness about the disease.
"[Loretta's been] blessed with ... an uncanny gift of being able to write songs about everyday life which tug on the heart strings"

"Thought provoking songwriting, delivered with passionate piano playing
– New Paltz Times
"With her soaring soprano, passionate piano playing and insightful lyrics, fans of Tori Amos should find Russell right up their alley. But Russell is definitely her own woman, playing a classical-folk-rock fusion that explores themes of love, hope and empowerment."
