Known for his multi-instrumentalist and songwriting talents, Randy has a gift for witty and catchy songs in a variety of musical styles intermingling the roots and boundaries of blues, folk, jazz, rock, and country.
Randy has been a professional musician for more than 40 years. He is currently the bandleader, guitarist, vocalist, song-writer, and marketing manager of the Portland, OR, band Tracey Fordice and the 8-Balls.

Tracey Fordice (formerly Tracey Bunch) rocks a beautiful, powerful and unique voice, as well as plays the piano and writes songs. Her talents are a blend of creativity that extends above and beyond most women in blues currently performing throughout the Portland blues scene.
