The Best Solo Jazz Vocalist

Signed to SO-UK: Music in 2017, Randolph Matthews performs solo and with band accompanied only by his looped voice. Where his roots in Jazz explore the thin line between the divine and secular. His compositions are musically piercing and attuned to the stories of life. Mixing lost love, melancholy and sophisticated technology for atmosphere.

Randolph Matthews is a Jazz vocalist, a songwriter, composer, producer and a beatbox extraordinaire. Beatbox is referred to the technique which reproduces musical instruments through the use of the voice made famous by Bobby McFerrin. Renowned by many as the best solo Jazz vocalist on the planet.

He moved from pub gigs to concert halls, breaking free from traditional song structures, inventing his own electrifying musical style. In one moment he can make you laugh out loud and in other he can make you cry with his deeply emotive rich voice.

He is noticeably seen playing on stage with a fedora hat, a sharp suit and an old 1960 suitcase, He has a unique style. But Randolph would prefer to be described as a vocal percussionist because he uses his voice to create beautiful musical landscapes that accompany his voice.
