Welcome to Favorite Fridays! I stumbled across this hidden gem of a singer while searching for Hamilton covers (I know, surprise, right?). Her name is Randy Schuit and I decided to reach out to her directly to get some fun info for you guys 😀 Turns out she’s as sweet as she is talented. I asked her a few questions, so enjoy getting to know Randy a little and I’ll include three of her videos below the interview for you to enjoy!
What is your favourite style of music to perform? To listen to?
Randy: I grew up doing musical theatre, so performing show tunes has always been my favorite. But I also love taking on pop songs, and songs that bring out the more soulful parts of my voice. I love taking popular songs and stripping them into acoustic versions and making them my own
Do you prefer live performances or recorded?
Randy: I love them both for different reasons but I think I definitely prefer live performances. I love having the opportunity to really perfect all of the little technicalities when I record in a studio but nothing compares to the feeling of a live performance. It’s so thrilling and I love being able to feed off of an audience. It just amps up the excitement and betters my performance
Do you plan on doing more YouTube videos?
Randy: Yes, definitely. I love being able to make YouTube videos. I’m really hoping to continue to build my channel. It’s such a great platform for artists
Have you pursued music as a career/what are your hopes and intentions for it?
Randy: I’m a performer. It’s always been the biggest part of my life. I’ve decided that right now is the time for me to completely devote myself to what I’m most passionate about and see where it takes me. I’m pursuing acting and theatre as well. I would love to be able to make a career out of doing what I love most, that is the ultimate dream for me.
Do you write/perform any original songs?
Randy: I haven’t really tapped into songwriting yet which is something I would love to do. Most of my performance background comes from theatre, and I love recording covers. But I would absolutely love to write some original music. It’s completely new and unfamiliar to me but I do think I have some songs in me.
She only has a few videos right now, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for more. Keep going Randy! You sound lovely and I can’t wait to hear more from you 😀
