Randolph Matthews

Vocals Tutor

Randolph fell in love with music when he was seven years old, with two tape recorders in his bedroom to record his mum singing downstairs, while he layered up voices and beats upstairs.

At 21 he left his job as a telecommunications engineer to pursue a career in music, soaking up the late-‘80s soul-jazz scene in London with regular trips to Norman Jay’s sessions at Hoxton’s Bass Clef. Randolph started out as a percussionist before finding his true vocation as a talented live vocalist, performer and lyricist.

He sang backing vocals for Don Blackman, Arthur Baker and Will Downing, before going solo in 2006 and releasing his debut album. His unique blend of jazz, soul and ethnic beatbox has seen him collaborating with a string of established artists including Plan B, Grace Jones, Shlomo, The Soil and Richard Bona, as well as performing at Ronnie Scott’s and the London Jazz Festival. His recent work with the Young Voices choir took Randolph up and down England with over 6,000 children, playing everywhere from Manchester Arena to the Royal Albert Hall and performing to more than 500,000 people over a two-year period, alongside Alexandra Burke, Beverley Knight and The High Kings.
