Since 2012 I have sung with Grammy-winning vocal group The Swingles as their low bass. It’s a dream gig for me: every day is different, I get to sing in every style under the sun as well as write and arrange, and to date I have recorded four studio albums and performed in 40 countries with the group. I also work as a freelance vocalist in a wide range of musical contexts, including…

Jazz: After singing with The Oxford Gargoyles and the Oxford University Big Band at university, I studied improvisation with Anita Wardell. From 2010-12 I toured with the Voice Messengers, an acclaimed French ‘vocal big band’ under the direction of Thierry Lalo. Around the same time I formed the Edward Randell Quartet, playing gigs around London. With The Swingles, I’ve been lucky to perform with jazz legends including Kurt Elling, John Taylor and New York Voices.

Contemporary Classical: With The Swingles I’ve performed Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia on four continents, with the world’s finest orchestras and conductors including Marin Alsop, Michael Tilson Thomas and Vladimir Jurowsky. In 2012 I was part of the premiere of Backstep, a piece by composer Chris Lewis for eight vocalists and beatboxer.

Choral: I’ve performed with choirs including London Voices, Chantage and Arsys Bourgogne. In 2018 I sang in the chorus for Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. I was part of a small choir providing backing vocals for Anna Calvi at UK performances including Meltdown 2015 (later released as a live album, and featuring curator David Byrne), and with The Swingles, I toured the UK with TV choirmaster Gareth Malone.

Soundtracks I can be heard on include Downsizing (on a song I co-wrote for the end credits), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Doctor Strange, The Conjuring 2, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, as well as video games World of Warcraft and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Pop & Rock: I’m currently working on a solo EP of my original songs, to be released in 2019. I also sing, play and write with sunshine-pop band Zig Zag Birds: our full-length debut Cuckoo Heart came out in 2017.
