Feeling a bit camera shy


Tin Ceilings was born in Chicago and educated most of his life as an engineer. At age 21, after being introduced to "Blood on the Tracks", he picked up a guitar and found creating music was his tool of survival. Since that day songwriting has come naturally and beautiful noises have become his art.

After studying the basics of songwriting under Steve Earle at the Old Town School of Folk Music and serving in the Peace Corps he was brought to the Northeast by the songs of his favorite artists: The Band (Acadian Driftwood), Stan Rogers, Archie Fisher, Leonard Cohen and Gordon Bok. Once in Maine Tin Ceilings was born and the Northern Grey Star was found.

Randy's songs intertwine the struggle of people and love, the weather and the land into a weave of stories and images. They are a blend of awareness (Steve Earle, Caetano Veloso), struggle (Nina Simone, Nick Drake), and dreams (David Byrne, Ida). He uses the art of songwriting and performing to heal, calm and enlighten himself and his listeners; almost as if each song was sacred.

Currently, Randy designs and builds roads for the State of Maine and records all songs at his home in Portland. He has been a member of various bands including: Seekonk, Tiger Saw, The Afflictions, Rural Electric and Brother Lowdown.
