Randi Driscoll's piano driven acoustic music is as hauntingly modern as it is classic. Randi is a five-time San Diego Music Awards nominee and Femmusic.com's artist of the year, 2000. Her performance credits include opening slots for Bob Weir's Ratdog, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Dar Williams, Jonatha Brooke, Pat Benatar, Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne. Randi has performed at Lincoln Center in the "Bang on a Can Festival", the 2001 HRC dinner in Washington, D.C., with keynote speaker, Hillary Clinton, and the NewYork City Hall Pride Awards honoring Whoopi Goldberg and Olympia Dukakis. Randi's music has been featured in documentaries, commercials and the WB hit series, "Dawson's Creek". In 1998, Randi wrote and recorded the benefit single, "What Matters", in response to the death of Matthew Shepard, a young man killed in a brutal hate crime. The song was written to honor his life, his family and the unconditional love they represent. "What Matters" is endorsed by Matthew's parents, The Matthew Shepard Foundation, GLAAD, GLSEN, and several other organizations. To date, the benefit single has raised over $30,000 for the Matthew Shepard Foundation, started by Matthew's parents after their son's death. The Foundation's goal is to replace hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance. The song has been featured in the documentaries, "Youth Outloud!" and "Out in the Cold," as well as a commercial directed by Spike Lee that aired during the 1999 Academy Awards. "What Matters" was also featured in the NBC film, "The Matthew Shepard Story," starring Sam Waterston and Stockard Channing. Randi has spent the past three years touring the U.S. and Canada as an independent artist, promoting the single and raising awareness. To date, she has performed at over thirty Pride Festivals and over 100 benefit related concerts.
