Vocalist and Percussionist can be heard singing a sultry ballad, electrifying the party, or playing percussion in a variety of settings. While earning her Masters’ degree from Winthrop University with an emphasis in Percussion Performance, she had the opportunity to open for John Pizzarelli. Her percussion background has influenced her vocal style. She has experience performing in Latin, classical, 20th century, African, pop, gospel, jazz, R&B, soul, funk, and folk styles which permeate her distinctive flair. Her unique blend of talents lets her shine in numerous music scenes – from the top jazz clubs and venues in the Carolinas to performing with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. Those that get to hear Randles are in for a treat.
