Quarter 2-4 

Hey Guys!

 

                 This is Randy Gleason coming at you with a follow-up to how the year has been going. to say it's been a weird year is an understatement. COVID 19 has put a lot of things out of business, mostly small businesses. I was affected from March 16th till about memorial day with going from 15+ shows a month down to about 3. I worked hard to try to regain some of the money that I had lost. I played a lot of small events, private parties and people were very generous when tipping and paying me which went a long way! fast track to Memorial day it started picking back up. Went to about 20 shows a month which really helped me because I was hurting for a while. This year such as last year July was my busiest month! I want to thank everyone for that! Between Memorial Day and up until about This month in November everything was going fine. Mike Dewine the Gov. of Ohio has recently imposed a Curfew that goes into effect from 10 PM-5 AM starting about November 19th. this has been hard on me as well as other bars, restaurants, and venues in the area. a lot of those places have seen decreased numbers of people coming in which in terms hurts the Establishment. I got some things in the works now and hopefully plan to release within the next few months. solo original music is going well and I'm about halfway written with my first Album. be on the lookout for that within the next year! id like to make it a spectacular moment for my musical journey. until then this is Randy Gleason Signing off. Come catch a show soon!!!!

Quarter 1 

Quarter One

 

     Hello All! the first quarter of this year has been weird, to say the least. up till March 16th, I was doing fine and playing very consistently. I'm sure everyone by now has heard of COVID-19. as for the foreseeable future my shows in March, April, and possibly May have been cancelled. unfortunately, I have lost a lot of financial income along with it bit, I am getting by. Facebook live shows every Wednesday until this pans out which I am hoping by the end of May. Definitely a weird way to start the year. I have been working on some original material and am prepping to go into the studio and release my first single. it's about time I get on the ball and get my music career jumping. Until then everyone stay safe and healthy.

Quarter 3 and 4 

Since May of this year, I have made a name for myself in the area. playing at a bar every week and having a following that comes out to sing and have fun with me is so rewarding. ive been working on writing some material that I feel is some of the best work so far lyrically speaking. been stuck in a rut of not wanting to play guitar because I already play my acoustic about 15 hours a week. I am getting some recording gear together to work some more on my solo band stuff as well as my acoustic solo. the band TOOL finally put out a new album this year. its been 12 days since the release and they are #1 on the Billboard charts. go TOOL!!! looks like now the stage is set for me to release my upcoming album. so be on the lookout. its gonna get slow this winter so ill have some time to just set back and play guitar and write some stuff. once again this is Randy Gleason and I really hope whoever reads this has a great day. until next time, come to one of my shows!

 

thank you!

Quarter 2  

Hello Everyone!!

I hope that whoever is reading this is doing well and things are going alright them. Let's get down to business. Ever since Feb. of this year i've been doing extensive footwork trying to get my name in the door and book some places. for the two months i have been doing it i have snagged about 6 shows! hopefully some to be regulars! You can see some of my upcoming shows over on my "Show's" tab. Keep on the look out. Im striking while the iron is hot and i've been putting the work in to meet and talk and audition. If you believe in me and feel that you can help spread the word anyway you can please share this page :) Thanks friends and fans for supporting me so far and continuing to support me.

New Year (Q1) 

I Hope everyone had a decent holiday. I spent it with my family and friend and it was a real good time. my uncle drove in from out of state which is cool because i don't see him often. New year and hopefully some shows at new venues i've never played at before. i've had a weekly gig for the last 5 months in New lexington and it is going well but i want to branch off and explore territory i'm not familiar with. anyways, got some new videos up under "Music" i'm gonna attempt to update at least every month with recorded footage or actual MP3's. i've been writing lately and have some idea i've been throwing around and once i get past the doubtfulness ill be able to throw some together for an album. I've been wanting to do an album for a long time. Maybe, 2019 is the year Randy Gleason and the band TOOL with both release an album. WOW! hopefully it comes true! until next time be safe, be careful and try to help others!

Quarter Two 

It's been a ride! last three months have changed me a lot as a person and the way i carry myself a musician and a human. i recently about a month ago quit my pizza job due to horrible car problems so i have decided that i am gonna start playing music as a main source of a way to live! i recently moved as well so being in a slightly different area is well.. different. I have been super busy in terms of having shows lined up for the summer. just in july alone a had every weekend booked. wish it was like that all the time!! here in the next month and a half its gonna start to die down and im gonna have to get my butt into gear and start booking some shows! Getting ready for the final 4 months of the year! its hard to believe that its already been almost a year!!

Quarter One 

I can't believe its already April i feel like i am still stuck in 2017! Already almost into May and before long it will be nice out too play some show outside! one thing i really enjoy about playing music work as a delivery driver. im not always stuck inside so i can at least enjoy the weather! i have a few dates in the books coming up for the summer months as well as some bands that i am apart of. I hope everyone has a great day and ill see you all soon!

A New Year 

I hope everyone is doing well and had good holidays. For me it was a great experience to just be around my friends and family at the time of the year when other people aren't so fortunate to be around others. That being said,I've got some shows coming up through April and some more shows on the horizon that i haven't got solidified yet. As always you can go over to the Shows tab and see all the upcoming shows i have! I will have some music of my own on here soon as well. more instrumental acoustic and a few with some vocals i think you all would enjoy! Once again as always have a joyous day and thank you for stopping by my website!

Sooner or later 

We are getting there sooner or later.

This website is something that should have been put up in 2014 but my endless procrastination
has kept me from doing so. That being said, Look out for this website to be filled up will just a
little more content since the last time you saw it. I feel this website will be an ever-Changing
Experience both for me as a musician and for you as an observer. Once i start to achieve 
more experience on the media side as well as real life interactions. i'll be able to progress with no Problem.
