Who's thAt mAn?
Ed Randazzo is a much celebrated, award-winning singer-songwriter from Northeastern Pennsylvania.
"… An affable, soft-spoken genuine soul… with a scathing mouthpiece of fire ‘n brimstone—part Bob Dylan tortured song-writing introspection, part Mississippi Fred McDowell world-weary, heavy-hearted bluesman… with a Leonard Cohen-esque delivery.”
—Mark Uricheck; Connections Magazine, June 2012
September 2008 would ignite the collaborative music making friendship between Ed and one of Pennsylvania’s most important music fixtures—singer-songwriter & producer, Bret Alexander [The Badlees; Breaking Benjamin]. Together, Randazzo & Alexander have released three acclaimed full-length records as well as a string of local radio stapled singles including 2012’s “Still Cry” and 2015’s “I Need a Woman”. Ed and Bret will soon mark their ten-year creative partnership in the fall of 2018.
Ed has shared the stage with international recording artists: Spence Bohren, Alexis P. Suter and Gabriel Gordon along with a countless list of local greats including MiZ, Dustin Douglas, Clarence Spady, Phyllis Hopkins and Teddy Young. He's also in demand at local venues throughout Pennsylvania—most notably, the annual Briggs Farm Blues Festival both as a solo artist and with his trio outfit, Miner Blues.
In 2015, Ed won a Steamtown Music Award for Blues/Rhythm & Blues Act of the Year.
Current projects include contributing music to the 2017 film, 'Black Guides of Mammoth Cave: A Documentary' as well as preparing new material for his fourth studio effort.
