Bio

Gary Randman is an aspiring songwriter who's been writing original pop/rock songs for the past 15 years. Gary seems to have a natural knack for writing songs that are generally simple in form yet leave the listener satisfied from pleasing melodies, catchy hooks and identifiable lyrics. His lack of restriction on his songwriting process has allowed him to write songs in the pop, rock and adult contemporary genres and appeal to various audiences ranging from the chart oriented, to those who are looking for something a little outside the mainstream, with more musical or lyrical depth.

Since he started to write songs in 1987 at college, Gary's main objective is to entertain the listener. His process for songwriting starts with the music first and then he layers the lyrics upon the mood and feel of the melody and rhythm. Not trying to match a pre-defined formula he builds upon piano improvisations and basic accompaniment patterns on his Yamaha and ancient Casio keyboards, which are all driven by the direction his muse wants to go. He enjoys writing songs that affect people from a simple song about love or friendship to exploring more complex human emotions and situations.

While hard to identify direct influences he is inspired by many of the classic rock artists. He is captivated by the creativity of The Beatles and the way they were able to write songs in so many different directions. He strives to obtain the musical impact of such artists as The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, U2 and Alannis Morrisette. He's enchanted with Bruce Springsteen's great mix of words and music that convey human heart and emotion. He admires the successful career of non-performing songwriter Diane Warren and hopes to follow in her path. While he tries to emulate the contributions of these well-known artists, all types of music are a source to his creative process for creating the notes and words to a given song.

In 1999 Gary was pleasantly surprised that his song "Sleeping With A Stranger" was a finalist in the UNISONG International Song Contest. With his first positive response from someone in the music industry he was motivated to start completing his catalog of unfinished songs. Since the birth of his second son in 2001 Gary has work relentlessly with his time after work as a software developer and time with his family, to get down his ideas on his 4-track recorder and work out the words on paper.

Since 1999 Gary has been exploring the Internet as a source for promoting his music and resource for learning and connecting with others in the pursuit of success in the music business. In 2001 he was able to get connected with Andy Cahan of The Turtles who helps songwriters and artist showcase their talents by producing high quality demos of their music. Gary is currently finishing up completion of his first collection of demos for showcasing his songs to publishers and artists. There are many more songs to come...

Although only beginning his songwriting journey, Gary believes his success as a songwriter is possible with hard work, growth and learning, persistence and patience, and the belief that he's captured something magical that people will respond to and enjoy.
