Ed Randazzo is a much-celebrated, award-winning singer-songwriter from Northeastern Pennsylvania.

"… An affable, soft-spoken genuine soul… with a scathing mouthpiece of fire 'n brimstone—part Bob Dylan tortured song-writing introspection, part Mississippi Fred McDowell world-weary, heavy-hearted bluesman… with a Leonard Cohen-Esque delivery."

—Mark Uricheck; Connections Magazine, June 2012

In September 2008, Ed began collaborating with singer-songwriter, producer, and Pennsylvania music fixture Bret Alexander.  Together, they have released three full-length albums and several notable singles, including "Ring Them Bells" (2008), "Still Cry" (2012), and "I Need a Woman" (2015). In the fall of 2018, they celebrated their ten-year working relationship by releasing "Who's that Man?: Collected Songs 2008-2018" in various formats, including a limited vinyl pressing.

Ed has also performed with many well-known artists, including Spencer Bohren, Gabriel Gordon, Alexis P. Suter, Mike Farris, and several local artists, such as Mike Miz, Dustin Douglas, Clarence Spady, Phyllis Hopkins, and Teddy Young. He has also been a featured performer at the annual Briggs Farm Blues Festival held in Central Pennsylvania as a solo artist and with his trio, Miner Blues.

Ed is an accomplished musician who was nominated for the Steamtown Music Award three times and won the Blues/Rhythm & Blues Act of the Year award in 2015. He contributed music to the 2017 documentary "Black Guides of Mammoth Cave" and has performed for and been featured on NPR.
