Bio

Alec Randles is an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist and singer-songwriter. His music has allowed him to grace streets, stages and festivals from Canberra to all across the United States - including San Francisco, Kansas City & Nashville. In August 2017, Alec had the opportunity to open for one of his great influences and the designer of his guitar - the Maton & D'addario sponsored 3x Golden Guitar awardee Michael Fix.

Alongside his fingerstyle work, Alec writes songs about his experiences travelling and researching socio-political issues in law and western political culture. His original 'These Days' highlights why Al is a refreshing act to see. His songs feature contemplative and mysterious lyrics, sophisticated guitar work and he uses no effects or loop pedals.

Accomplished fingerstyle guitarist - No Shit! This is magnificent and beautiful. To add to your ridiculous talents your vocals have an old school charm, I feel like this song teleported from the 1960s-70s to now. I can hear so many musicians in your sound but can't see to pin point who exactly you remind me of.
I guess that's the sign of a great artist.
