“Never give up on your dreams!”
Randy Lyght is a jazz and pop singer/songwriter and has been involved in the Canadian music and entertainment industry for decades.
Currently Randy has recorded a CD of all of his own original music and lyrics compliments of a FACTOR grant. For the last five years Randy has successfully performed and recorded three albums (Just In Time, A Return To Romance and Happy Holidays) that were all produced by the award-winning producer Rick Hutt at Cedartree Recording Studio. Two of these albums cover songs from the American Songbook. With Randy’s creation of his original songs, he has focused on breathing new life into the same genre of music.
Randy is also the proud recipient of two additional FACTOR Grants (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Records) for the two singles “Witchcraft” and “All In Fun” both being on his most recent CD “ A Return to Romance”.
Growing up in a household that appreciated all flavours of music, Randy was introduced to country as well as big band music. At the young age of 15, Randy started in his hometown of Thunder Bay in Northern Ontario, singing the cover songs of the popular rock bands of the time because that was the accepted music. Soon, Randy started to admire the works of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and others even if it wasn’t the cool music to listen to at the time.
In the mid-70’s Randy was asked to join a world tour for 18 months with The World Renowned Platters. His talent and innate musicality was enriched, singing under the direction of very talented performers.
Returning home, Randy moved to Vancouver BC and continued to sing at countless live engagements and recorded commissioned songs and radio jingles until the mid 80’s.
After meeting his soul mate and having children, Randy chose to put his dream on hold and provide a stable lifestyle for his family. A part of his heart though was always with his music.
Now after returning to pursue his passion of music in 2011, Randy has been entertaining audiences with his now mature and textured vocals. When he performs he exudes a kind of showmanship, class and charisma from years gone by.
Randy is well known for his engaging shows of personality on stage, which applauds audiences every time. Randy makes every show count and be memorable.
