Discography

Sponsored

Randi Driscoll is a singer and songwriter whose original music, voice and passionate stage performances have earned her many accolades including Campus Activities Magazine's Female Performer of the Year 2004, and Best Small Venue Performer 2004.

Driscoll has performed at Lincoln Center in the Bang on a Can Festival, the 2001 HRC dinner in Washington, D.C., with keynote speaker, Hillary Clinton, and the New York City Hall Pride Awards honoring Whoopi Goldberg and Olympia Dukakis. Her music has been featured in documentaries, commercials, and the WB TV series Dawson's Creek. Without any major label behind her, she has been able to sell over 20,000 CDs and successfully tour the country, building a devoted following.

She can often be seen performing with her musical partner and percussionist, Noah Heldman. In summer 2012, her tune “No Song” won the Adult Contemporary category in the annual online SongoftheYear.com contest.

Her 2013 song “Angel Choir,” recorded with children from Creative Planet School of the Arts, appears on the CD Angel Songs, a charity album recorded to raise funds for Newtown, CT victims that also includes locals Lisa Sanders and Tim Flannery.

Her next full-length Glass Slipper, released in May 2016, features songs written by Driscoll, and produced by Driscoll, Noah Heldman, and Grammy winner Larry Mitchell. Driscoll, who took time off to give birth to her daughter Skyler Faith, calls this latest release another "labor of love. The CD features a collection of songs, written before and after my daughter's birth, that tell the stories of relationships, hope, loss, and spaces between."

The eleven tracks were recorded in San Diego, Pasadena, New York, and Nashville, and feature duets with rising country star Aaron Parker and Ohio Peace Troubador Zach.

Asked about her "worst gig" stories, she mentions a few that top her list. "It would have to be a tie between the broken piano gig during a bingo game, in front of a mylar curtain and following a ragtime band that played a seven minute version of 'Puff the Magic Dragon,' or the time Noah and I performed outside in 38 degrees for a half hour."

She also mentions "The library at a small liberal arts school in Ohio, on a stage made of astro-turf, during finals week. There was a lot of sshhing and angry stares."

Or, "The time the banner read 'Free Quiznos at noon' and, in a much, much, smaller font, 'and Randi Driscoll.'"

Special Mention: "The time we followed a magician whose final bit was pulling Jesus out of a jewelry box."
