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 respected music fixtures—singer-songwriter & producer Bret Alexander [The Badlees; Breaking Benjamin].  Together, Randazzo & Alexander have released three acclaimed full-length records and a string of local radio stapled singles, including 2008's "Ring Them Bells," 2012's "Still Cry," and 2015's "I Need a Woman."  

Ed and Bret marked their ten-year creative partnership in the fall of 2018 with the release of "Who's that Man?: Collected Songs 2008-2018" on various formats, including a special limited vinyl pressing of the project! 

Ed has shared the stage with international recording artists Spencer Bohren, Gabriel Gordon, Blues Music Award nominee Alexis P. Suter, and Grammy Award winner Mike Farris, 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 as a solo artist and with his trio outfit, Miner Blues. 

Ed Randazzo is 3x Steamtown Music Award nominee and the 2015 Blues/Rhythm & Blues Act of the Year winner

Ed contributed music to the 2017 film, 'Black Guides of Mammoth Cave: A Documentary.'
