Academy Award nominee and golden globe winner Randy Quaid may be best known as an acclaimed and respected actor but music has always had a place in Randy’s life. He began performing as a singer-songwriter before his acting career took off, he and wife, creative partner Evi started playing and writing music together as a way to express their love and frustration. Finding relief in telling the truth through song, Randy and Evi kept putting pen to paper, often writing down simple ideas and verses that would later become finished compositions.
Most recently Randy appeared live on stage at the legendary Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, and backed by stellar band The Fugitives, where he realized how good playing music and being on stage felt, and thus together entered the studio to record a series of songs that will eventually become his first full length album, to be released worldwide later this year by Maximum Music/EMI.
The first two singles include the infamous Star Whackers, a hard-hitting rock-rebel styled number and the beautiful Americana-Cash-eque influenced lovers-lament “Will We Be Together Then”, an open and honest love song written by Evi and Randy while traveling through troubling times.
