El Patio Escondido
El Patio was an awesome night. It was hard to find a seat. This was the first time that Jona Lunde and I played together and it was like magic. Our breaks and timing were almost flawless. In musician language, that almost never happens when two people play together for the first time—-EVER. I really hope to book some more stuff with her, but I’m afraid somebody is gonna snatch her up. I will definitely try though.
Originally from Deep East Texas and Louisiana, Randall Gartman's sound and writing style are always going to transcend his roots. You can almost feel the mud between your toes as you're tapping your feet to "Alligator Crawl" or maybe even get the feeling of Bourbon Street as you listen to "Cool Like You". It's a simple sound with a catchy beat, but all the words are honest and from the heart. Every song captures a part of Randall's feelings at a particular time and place or reminisces through part of his childhood memory but you will always know it's not another song that has been written, just to satisfy the so-called, "music industry professional"
