Looking for a new artist to add to your list of favorites for the summer? Then don’t miss singer/songwriter Brett Randell as he stops in at Gusto’s Upstairs in Lancaster on July 7 during his “Austin to Boston and Back” tour.
This 22-year-old, New York native came into the music scene about three years ago after writing his first song, “Change the World,” however, after listening to his music, you would think this talented bluesy artist has been writing songs his whole life.
Randell lets his smooth voice and acoustic prowess take center stage with songs that pull at his listener’s heart strings. He calls his music “epic acoustic poetry” and he couldn’t be more correct. Randell’s folk-like, storytelling style makes you feel like you are sitting around a campfire being told epic tragedies and love stories. Randell doesn’t clutter his music with too many instruments, melodies, or vocals, which is what truly gives him that laid-back, cool and bluesy vibe.
The addition of the violin and cello in many songs are sure to give you goose bumps and remind you of artists like Justin Nozuka, Jason Mraz and Amos Lee. Randell has found the ability to create songs that connect with his listeners lyrically while also making his audience want to tap their toes and sway to his jazzy, pop infused melodies.
His song “Jack and Coke” is the perfect song to add to your summer playlist when you want to take a drive on a sunny day with the music up and the windows down.
