Biography

“Randy Ellefson is a remarkable guitar virtuoso.” – Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles.
“Randy Ellefson is a dazzling and nimble-fingered axe wielder.” – Guitar Nine Records.

Randy Ellefson has returned with his second instrumental rock offering, aptly titled, Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid. This time drummer Jeff Moos and session bassist Dave DeMarco have added to the melodic overdose.

Still playing his homemade guitars, Ellefson shows no signs of having lost his playing for five years to tendonitis, which resulted from achieving four years of classical guitar skill in only two years to earn a Bachelors of Music.

Since the release of his debut album, The Firebard, Ellefson has earned endorsements with Alvarez Guitars, Peavey, and Morley Pedals, and been heard on XM Radio Unsigned 52 and stations in Canada, Australia, and the U.S. Great reviews of Rand’s playing can be found in BW&BK magazine (issue #83), which also featured the song “Weekend Warrior” on their KnuckleTracks compilation.

Ellefson’s band is now performing in the Mid-Atlantic, USA, was invited to perform in the local All-Star Jam, and has been interviewed by local press twice. He attracts up to 10,000 visitors a month to his website, is a top five Google search result for “instrumental guitarist” three years running, and has published articles at top guitar re-lated sites, including Guitar9.com and UltimateGuitar.com.

Randy Ellefson’s second album, Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid, will be available July 31st, 2007.
