Formed at the start of the new Millenium by vocalist/guitarist Mark Randolph, The Mark Randolph Band were regulars of the Los Angeles music scene, playing their Classic Rock and Funk/Blues influenced music to a quickly growing fan base.
Drawing upon a kaleidoscope of influences -- rock, funk, psychedelia, blues, R&B, soul, indie rock, experimental and jazz -- Mark Randolph creates a body of work that is unpredictable, vibrantly rich in texture and bursting with ideas. This band is unquestionably a product of the media age – they masterfully synthesize the past and the present. If their musical style was impossible to pigeonhole, their true identity and roots lay in that underlying soulful and bluesy funk combined and textured with today’s new sounds.
Their debut album, Mark Randolph, beautifully blends the bands strong sense of groove, richly layered rhythms and emotional lyrics. Often these surreal, free-spirted lyrics are laced with deep visual imagery and a sardonic sense of humor creating a stronger and deeper impact to their adventurous and psychedelic music.
The Mark Randolph Band takes its love of spirituality and fuses these ideals into their eclectic music. They are devoted to a path of inquiry that leads to self-awakening, inner peace, acceptance and unconditional love. They have a lightness of being and don’t take themselves too seriously. “We recognize the limitations of our intellect and the wisdom of our hearts” The past does not exist. The future will never come. There is only this ever-changing moment. We groove, make music and flow with the NOW….
