“ Randell has stopped trying to aspire to something he believes he was not created to be, but instead is exploring the many rooms and closets that make up who he really is. His song Feather and Stone reflects that. Hill is a Mohawk man with the soulful voice of a black gospel singer, the fingers of an Americana folk guitarist and the deep soul and spirit of a visionary.”

Inspired by John T. Benson Jr., Rufus Randell started his wordcrafting journey by creating originals with the ability to step into people's shoes and give them a voice. Rufus came into being in 2009 combining a love for roots music, sometimes referred to as Americana seasoned with soul. Most recently described by the Vice President of Songwriters Association of Canada as, "Your songs are terrific. Likewise your singing and playing." After handing off my recent CD. Blair Packham reiterated, "Listen--the IMPORTANT part is the writing, singing and playing, and your stuff is really, really good." During Canada's Music Week and the Green Room sponsored by SAC.

I was also nominated for an Aboriginal Music Award in 2000 and still combine storytelling from my ancestry and personal life experiences in song.

I'm currently doing music full time.
