They are an actual family; the group that supports Randolph is anchored by his cousins, bassist Danyel Morgan and drummer Marcus Randolph and his sister, vocalist Lenesha Randolph.  The album was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, and Jason Isbell

Rolling Stone Magazine
voted Randolph as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists and they have earnedthree Grammy nominations along their journey. It’s no wonder they have picked up an incredible list of artists who have featured on their albums such as; Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, Leon Russell, Doyle Bramhall II, Trombone Shorty, Carlos Santana and T-Bone Burnett.

A prolific touring schedule has seen them hit the road with; Gregory Porter, Carlos Santana, John Scofield, Gary Clark Jr, Trombone Shorty, Buddy Guy, Living Color, The Sheepdogs, Tedeshi Trucks and| Dave Matthews Band amongst others.

They have played Clapton’s Crossroad Festival at Maddison Square Garden three times as well as major festivals across Europe such as Hyde Park Calling (UK), BluesFest (UK), Cognac Blues (France), Festival de Jazz (France), Blues ‘n’ Jazz (Switzerland), RAWA Blues (Poland) and Randolph has also taken on the hugely popular Experience Hendrix Tour with Eric Johnson, Bootsy Collins, Robby Krieger, Taj Mahal and Steve Vai.

“When you think about Stax music and a lot of music from the 70s, especially like the Staples Singers, it was inspirational and you danced you had a good time. That’s what we really wanted to hone in on here: let’s sound good and have a natural good time that will bring listeners along. All of the music that we played in the beginning was what we would play in church. We just turned it into long jams,” says Randolph.
