With his smooth, sometimes-gritty baritone and intelligent lyrics, Randy Branch is one of Alabama’s most popular and respected performers. Originally from the Hattiesburg, Mississippi area, Branch has been playing music since the 60s -inspired in part by his own dad, a guitar and mandolin player – and has also worked as a songwriter in Nashville.
Randy’s band Oakley Hill was popular on college campuses from 1977-1984 and opened for the likes of Hank Williams, Jr., Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, Guy Clark, Johnny Paycheck, Townes Van Zandt and Steve Young.
While in Nashville as a writer in the mid-80s, he collaborated on songs with well-known writer Carmol Taylor, including the chart single “How’d You Sleep Without Me?”, which is updated with an acoustic version on Branch’s exciting new collection.
Branch’s rootsy release, Long Black Car contains 11 songs that touch on all of Branch’s expansive musical borders, including the hit title track. Long Black Car was recorded at Gintown Studios with producer Rick Carter (Rollin’ in the Hay) at the helm and with musical support from members of Frankie Velvet and the Mighty Veltones.
