Randall Williams is a Midcoast Maine-based guitarist, “cut-capo” virtuoso, songwriter, educator, author, world traveler and musical entrepreneur.
In 2002, Randall graduated at the top of his class from the Royal Conservatory of Mons, Belgium with a degree in classical voice. But that culture of performance required a clear division between artist and audience, which ultimately Randall traded for the world of traveling, writing songs in train stations, couch surfing, then singing and playing on street corners, cafés, and pubs.
For a time he lived aboard a 20′ sailboat that he bought for $800, learning how to sail by navigating his way through the Baltic and North Seas, with only his guitar to keep him company. He wrote a book about the trip, which begins with the story of almost getting squashed by a tanker before dawn one morning in the North Sea. These events and many more inspired his 2008 CD, Praying For Land.
Randall's newest musical adventure is a song cycle based on international bestseller Einstein’s Dreams. He has also written two instructional books for Hal Leonard, and is sponsored by Kyser Musical Products to market their “partial capo” products.
