About our Artist:

Many  musicians  claim  that  they  “grew  up  in  the  church,”  but  for  Robert  Randolph that  is  literally  the  case.  The  renowned  pedal  steel  guitarist,  vocalist  and  songwriter led  such  a  cloistered  childhood  and  adolescence  that  he  heard  no  secular  music  while  growing  up.  If  it  wasn’t  being  played  inside  of  the  House  of  God  Church  in  Orange,  New  Jersey—quite  often  by  Robert  and  members  of  his  own  family,  who  upheld  a  long  but  little  known  gospel  music  tradition  called  sacred  steel—Randolph  simply  didn’t  know  it  existed. Which  makes  it  all  the  more  remarkable  that  the  leader  of  Robert  Randolph  and  the  Family  Band—whose  label  debut  for  Sony  Masterworks,  Got  Soul,  was  released  on  Feb.  17,  2017—is  today  an  inspiration  to  the  likes  of  Eric  Clapton,  Carlos  Santana  and  Derek  Trucks,  all  of  whom  have  played  with  him  and  studied  his  technique.  It  wasn’t  until  he  was  out  of  his  teens  that  Randolph  broke  away  from  the  confines  of  hissocial  and  musical  conditioning  and  discovered  rock,  funk,soul,  jazzand  the  jam  band  scene,  soon  forging  his  own  sound  by  fusing  elements  of  those  genres.“It  was  all  church  music.   Randolph has been named  one  of the  100  Greatest  Guitarists  of  All  Time by  Rolling  Stone.
