Randall Bramblett in the News!
We’ve always been fans of the publication M Music and Musicians.

We’re just read a great interview that makes us love this publication even more!
Here is how publisher/journalist Merlin David sets the stage for his interview with Randall Bramblett:
“Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Randall Bramblett is releasing his 11th studio album Juke Joint at the Edge of the World early next month. Combining elements of soul and funk, Bramblett marries profound lyrics with heart-thumping soulful melodies inspired by old southern music clubs—juke joints.
“Some of the places we play are like the old juke joints where people dance and shout,” Randall explains. “From these people and places we find the energy we need to be free to shake the music up.” He attributes the creative evolution of this 10-song collection to the bond he shares with his bandmates. This record “reflects the freedom that my bandmates and I have found in the last few years of playing together.”
Highly sought-after for his creativity as both a collaborator and skilled touring sideman, the legendary Georgian’s talent has earned him the respect of his peers and many of rock’s finest luminaries. While having shared stages with Steve Winwood, Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic, Bramblett will be on his own tour through the summer supporting the new record that has a live in-the-studio feel to it. “The music is rooted more in the soul and R&B dance music I grew up listening to and playing. The songs will take you places that make you dream and dance.”
Juke Joint at the Edge of the World will be released on July 7 (New West Records), and it is one of the most soulful albums Randall Bramblett has ever recorded. The music thumps at your heart, grabs your soul, and makes you want to get up and dance.
We talked with Randall Bramblett about his incredible career in music, the recent passing of Gregg Allman, his new soulful album, and how he continues to push the boundaries while remaining authentic to find his voice and his true center.”
