It can be a rarity these days to find artists who possess the type of sincerity, integrity, and connection to their craft which today, folks so desperately crave in a post patient world. NYC based, national touring crooner and edgy folk songwriter, Randy Niles, is more than an exception to this model...he is truly the rule.
With a new EP set for release in the Fall of 2016, followed by a full length album release for the Spring of 2017, Niles plans on taking his one-man act to the furthest limits by delivering thought provoking songs that can ignite the heart of the most unaware listener.
Creating a fundamental platform for honest songwriting steeped in folk/soul & blues, Niles digs his roots deep into you with earnest storytelling, which seems to deliver an equal dose of mind, body and spirit. His voice explores ranges that soar from sweet falsettos, to scraping the ground with just enough edge to keep any listener straddling the genre divide.
Matched with a skilled ability to strum/finger-pick complicated, yet musically cohesive guitar phrases, while integrating folky foot drum stomping, and tasteful looping techniques, turns this self-taught, solo singer/songwriter into a one-man multi-instrumental power house. He weaves all of these traits into one seamless body of work, leaving his audiences not only entertained but fulfilled from beginning to end.
With an impressive list of accomplishments including opening for artists such as: Rusted Root founder, front man,singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki (Mercury/Island/Touchy Pegg), Singer/Songwriter Ry Cuming /RY X (Jive/Sony, Dumont Dumont, Infectious Music UK), national touring Blues-Rock Singer-Songwriter/Guitarist - Eli Cook (Cleopatra Records), and Billboard charted Country Singer/Songwriter, Craig Bickhardt, Niles has been touring relentlessly in an effort to create not just a catalog, but a brand that folks will easily associate with, and remember for times to come.
His hopes are to match the growth and maturity he has experienced through the last few years of touring, life challenges, and accomplishments, with an upcoming catalog, and release of music that will forever embed itself in the minds and hearts of his growing fan base and community.
