An “engaging story teller and masterful entertainer”, Jan Randall delivers his unique style of “charm and wit infused with traditional jazz and blues.“
From his early days in Edmonton Alberta touring North America with his first band Manna – to his recent 2022 live streamed Duncan Showroom concert – Jan Randall continues to have an amazing musical career.
Credited with more than 50 original comedy songs over six seasons of The Irrelevant Show, Jan was one of the stars of this CBC Radio comedy series. Artists parodied included Prince, Joni Mitchell, Loreena McKennitt, Frank Sinatra, Paverotti, the Rolling Stones, Julie Andrews and Cher.
His first solo album Good Fair World (2008) was followed with a tour that included Los Angeles, Berlin, London, Rome, and most of Western Canada.
Wait in Line (2021) fuses blues, jazz, and latin music. The single Feel the Sun from this album continues to be a favourite on radio and streaming services everywhere.
A first call keyboard artist, he has worked with internationally known legends Otis Rush, Amos Garrett, Gary US Bonds, Diana Braithwaite, Chris Whitley, Sam Lay (Paul Butterfield) and Bo Diddley.
Holger Peterson (Stony Plain Records) said “My deep respect for Jan and his music goes way back. He is one of most well rounded, and talented composers, musicians, arrangers and producers I’ve worked with. Always easy going, and a ton of fun. We started doing projects together years ago and I look forward to many more.”
“Great lyrics with tunes that haunt you- his shows are magical events that should not to be missed…”
