Randi has always been a very spunky girl. She stuck out like the prettiest sore thumb growing up in the small town of Boise, Idaho. This bi-racial young woman had a difficult journey discovering, “belonging,” yet it never prevented her from following her spark. She saw her greatness at a young age, and developed her love for singing and writing music throughout her
high school choir career. A touch overwhelmed, Randi moved to Los Angeles where she attended the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music to further her education in music. She studied
jazz, choir, and arranging for voices.

She went on to release her own self-produced, self-recorded, and self-written album called, “ Luminous.” This was her pride and joy the day it was released, but she moves quickly and is already onto the next thing. She signed with SONO Music Group in 2022, and the rest is yet to come.

With her single, “Dancing with a Broken Heart,” out now, we took some time to hear more from Randi. Read below to learn more about Randi, the story behind her single, and what’s to come.

Hi Randi! Let’s start with how did you get your artist name?

That’s a funny one. I grew up not liking my name because it is traditionally a ‘boy name.’ I decided in college that any and every name can be for anyone, and Randi is mine. Now, I love it.

What city are you from and where are you based now?

I am from Boise, Idaho which seems so weird and small now. I am currently located in San Diego, California.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music? How
did you get started?

In high school, I was in four or five choirs, and I just couldn’t imagine my life without singing and without music. It has been such a big part of my life for so long, it feels like I don’t have a choice other than to pursue it relentlessly…
