      The performance was great, songs and lyrics were exceptional. The video was not good- there were many periods when the screen went black for short periods of time, several instances of short repeats of the performance and several instances the video stopping and a revolving circle in the center. This needs to be fixed for future videos.

With lyrics that weave stories and muse over feelings many seem to take for granted, Brett Randell is a musician on a mission to connect the world. The 26-year-old New Yorker, currently living between Austin, TX and Denver, CO, croons with a clear and powerful voice, bringing emotion and energy to the singer/songwriter genre. His soulful, poetry-based style places emphasis on intense lyrics, catchy melodies, and emotional stories.

Despite being surrounded by music his entire life, Brett only recently realized his passion for performing and songwriting. Though both his sister and brother performed in bands throughout their teenage years, Brett shied away from any musical pursuits and stuck to his passion for drawing and writing. It wasn’t until purchasing an acoustic guitar for his 20th birthday that he had even considered writing a full song.

Quickly putting pen to paper and fingers to fret, he unleashed the thoughts and feelings stored inside him for years. Within the first couple days of owning his guitar, he wrote the song that would be the ultimate goal for his musical endeavors, “Change The World.”

In 2008, barely nine months after picking up that guitar, Brett performed his music to a crowd of people from twenty-three countries in Milan, Italy. Later that year, in his second live performance, he opened for Pete Francis of the famous independent rock band, Dispatch.

In 2009, Brett abandoned plans for a stable career in New York City and packed his bags for Austin, Texas – and he hasn’t looked back since. Living and playing in the ‘Live Music Capital of The World’ has developed and evolved Brett’s style, especially with the collaboration of cellist Christopher Rains, pianist Wilyum Jerome, and drummer Music Read.
In 2010, almost three years after writing his first song, Brett released his second CD – the five song EP “Glow,” and toured the US and Europe, spanning the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and France in December.

After playing over 100 shows in 2011, touring around the US, and honing his craft in Austin, Brett decided to switch gears from the DIY self-marketed musician approach and get back to the creative side of music.

So in 2012, with a one-way ticket to Florence, a backpack, and his first Martin guitar, Brett traveled around the Mediterranean for 6-months, pursuing his dream of connecting people with music and traveling with no goals or plans. From rooftops in Istanbul, to ancient Roman streets in Croatia, vineyards in Tuscany, green parks in Tbilisi, Georgia, radio stations in Athens, and small apartments in Serbia, Brett fulfilled his dream of connecting with all walks of people, learning more about music, the world, and himself.

In 2013, after another stint in Austin, traveling around the US for most of the year in his car, and finally landing in Denver, Brett found his new home (for now).

2014 is the year to record the new CD, “Rise.” With a slew of new songs, and new arrangements of old ones, the journey continues… Stay tuned.
