Randy in Tokyo

In November I performed at the Cotton Club with Bruce Gaitsch (guitar), Janey Clewer (artist/vocals/keyboards), George Hawkins (bass), Billy Ward (drums), and Dave Innis (keyboards). It was unforgettable. The crowds were great and the club was Class A.

A Visit to Scandinavian Songs

I stopped by Scandinavian Songs in Stockholm to write with some of my favorite writers. Here’s 2 of them, Filip Lindfors and Ingemar Åberg,  along with a picture of the office. I love working with this stable of writers. They are amazingly talented, each and every one.

LOKKO Concert

I just got back from a great writing/performing trip to Sweden. I did a concert with Lars Söderberg and Jonathan Westling under the artist/band name, LOKKO. Lars and I formed LOKKO earlier this year and this is our first live performance as the band. We appeared at the New Directions Festival in Luleå, Sweden. Later in the trip I went to Stockholm for a few days and wrote with some amazing writers. More on that later. Here’s a link to the LOKKO concert:

Writing with French Guys Productions

While in LA I wrote a huge song with Stéphane Lozac’h, and Olivier Visconti (French Guys Productions). They are extremely talented guys and we wrote a fresh, exciting pop song. They simultaneously produced an amazing track. High hopes for this one!!

I just got back from participating in ASCAP EXPO in Los Angeles. I performed with fellow songwriters, Jon Lind, Gretchen Peters, and Judy Collins. It was an unforgettable, moving experience for me to hear the magical performances of the other writers. I did my best to add to the atmosphere with my renditions.

Sweden in February 2012

I was fortunate to have a song in the Melodifestvalen song competition, which is a precursor to Euro Vision.  I co-wrote a song that was in the top 32 songs. The song, Aldrig, Aldrig, wasn’t the winner, but it hit the iTunes in the top ten right after the show. That makes the 5th decade I’ve had new, original music hit the charts, and I’m not even old yet! Go figure.

Below is a picture of some colleagues I wrote with while I was there. I’ve gone to Stockholm and environs for several years, and I have been fortunate enough to write and produce with some talented writers. The three on the couch are: Jacob Olofsson, me, and Niclas Lundin. The other picture is of Erik Bernholm, and Niclas Lundin. There are several more people I have co-written with, but I don’t have  pictures yet. More on that later. While in Sweden I also attended the Swedish Grammis (that’s how it’s spelled, really). I have enclosed a pic of the wonderful Opera House in Stockholm.

Here’s my first entry in my new, NEWS section of my website. Here’s a photo of me, C. J. Vanston, and Steve Lukather. We’re writing for Luke’s new album. This was taken at C. J.’s studio in North Hollywood. Luke is one of my all time favorite co-writers!
