    Randy Coleman

    Seasoned artist, Randy Coleman, is back with his brand new, beautifully crafted EP, “Ragged Heart."   The songs in sequence tell a story of heartbreak and redemption.   It is an introspective peek into Randy's personal journal during a painful yet transformative time in his life.   As Randy puts it, “This record documents a time when i was spiritually bankrupt and brought to my knees.   It was my 'broken hallelujah!' to quote Leonard Cohen.”   
    At the age of 9, Randy's life changed when he was  divinely assaulted by the incomparable vocals of Freddie Mercury.  “Hands down my favorite singer!” (Randy declares)   His homage to Freddie is evident in his acoustic version of Bohemian Rhapsody, which has now reached an impressive 3.9 million views (and still climbing) on YouTube.  Noting other influences, Randy immersed himself in the music of Led Zeppelin, The Beach Boys, Ray Charles, Otis Redding and the Beatles.  With his interest in such diverse artists driving him forward, he happened upon the poetic lyrics and the hi-lonesome sound of Hank Williams. "Hank is one of the few artists I can listen to anytime, no matter what mood I'm in.  His voice and lyrics are so pure;  I can hear the heartbreak, the struggle and the restless resolve in every word he sang.”
    At the age of 13 when Randy's parents divorced,  he found an outlet playing drums, albeit briefly.  Being true to his Aries nature (as he would say), he realized he needed to be out in front.  Armed with nothing more than a second-hand acoustic guitar, a Beatles songbook, and an unrelenting ambition, Randy's therapy began.  As Randy states, 'looking back, it really helped me get through a tough and confusing time in my life.  When I'm asked how I learned how to play guitar, I tell them 2 guys from Liverpool taught me…John and Paul.'
    Post college Randy decided to take some time off from music to pursue acting,  not a surprise being the son of Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor Dabney Coleman; and actress Jean Hale.  He studied acting at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and earned an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts.  In 2017, he starred in his first feature film “This Day Forward”,   “…an experience that changed my life.” Randy notes. 
    After graduating from Cal Arts, Randy signed a record deal with independent label, Vagrant Records.  The record was picked up by a Universal Music Group subsidiary called 333, spearheaded by director, Tom Shadyac.  Randy formed the critically acclaimed band Zoo Story and recorded an album with 333.  As a result, the song "Star" written by Randy was featured in the Kevin Costner film, Dragonfly.  Short lived,  the band went their separate ways.  Discouraged yet driven, Randy decided to continue writing and gigging as a solo artist, enlisting Zoo Story guitar player, Carlos Rivera.  He signed with legendary manager Doc McGhee, (Kiss, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Bob Schneider, etc.) and met Skid Row guitarist Snake Sabo.  “Second only to my dad, he’s the funniest guy I’ve ever met”  Randy says about Snake.  It was suggested that Randy and Snake work together on some of Randy's music and see what happens.  According to Snake, it wasn't work at all. “Working with Randy was the easiest project I have ever been a part of.  Every song he played, I loved…My job was to basically just press the record and stop buttons.”  Together they recorded an acoustic CD titled "Snake Sessions."  
    Shortly after the release of Snake Sessions Randy and his compadre Carlos hit the studio to record the LP "Last Salutation."  After completion, both he and Carlos had the great fortune to perform at the legendary Hollywood Bowl opening up for the iconic band The Who.  “One of the scariest moments of my life (Randy recalls), but we did good.”   With another opportunity galvanized by then manager Doc McGhee, Randy and Carlos traveled the US visiting 27 different cites opening for Def Leppard and Bryan Adams.  Randy remembers meeting Bryan, “He said to me 'good on you,' and I thought what the hell does that mean?  only to find out that it's a colloquial phrase used in England meaning 'Great Job!  Coming from him, I was deeply honored.”  Continued success for Last Salutation came when two of Randy's songs were placed in film and TV.   "You will Shine" was featured in the Project Greenlight film Feast and the eponymous self titled "Last Salutation" was featured on the TV show Scrubs. 
    According to Randy,  a lot has happened since the release of his last record.  “I had lost myself and had to take a hard look at who I had become, to forgive myself and find that spark in me that was hopefully still lit.”   We hear this sentiment echoing in one of his songs recently heard on the TV show Deadliest Catch; "The Pact."  “Know your name, know it well…and give them something to believe in.”  In his latest release "Ragged Heart," and with a newfound direction in his personal life,  it is evident that Randy is inviting his audience to not only bare witness to his testimony, but to also celebrate in his declaration to reclaim his freedom.
