Who is Randolph?

Randolph will be familiar to many students in Essex from the engaging workshops he’s run with students of all ages, and we’re thrilled to be welcoming him back to Essex to work with our young people. Randolph is an acclaimed British jazz vocalist, and over his 25 year career has garnered high praise from respected music critics and industry experts. Songlines lauded him as a “stunning, McFerrin-esque talent,” while The Guardian described his sound as “cinematic vocal jazz.” Jazz FM praised Randolph’s “dazzling improvisational skills” and deemed him “flawless and world-class. He has established himself as one of the UK’s leading contemporary vocalists and performers, with his compositions reflecting a range of musical styles, from classical to African/Caribbean rhythms, to jazz and choral.
