Visit Randy Niles on the web!
NYC based, regional touring Singer Songwriter & Indie/Soul artist, Randy Niles is a one-man band who creates seamless, radio-ready compositions from the ground up. Infusing hints of Folk, Pop & Rock into his energetic and soulful performances, he delivers songs that incorporate dynamic layers of instrumentation through the use of colorful effects and live looping technology. He fascinates his audiences, juggling an array of tasks from stacking melodic guitar phrases and vocal harmonies, to laying down grooving bass lines, and even creating percussive beats with the body of his acoustic guitar.
Never compromising great songwriting for quirky technical gimmicks, Randy builds tunes which deliver a comfortable balance of thought provoking songwriting matched with soaringly crooning vocals. As an original singer, songwriter and guitarist burning the genre divide, Niles has been likened to such artists as John Mayer, Marvin Gaye, John Legend, Ben Harper, Andrew Bird and James Vincent McMorrow.
