Alec Randles is an independent fingerstyle guitarist and roots musician local to Canberra. His original music infuses his backgrounds in Celtic, Flamenco and Classical fingerstyle guitar with contemporary roots music and thought-provoking lyricism.

Despite the obstacles of 2020, the past year has showed no sign of Randles slowing down. He embarked on a tour across New Zealand (selling out the debut show in Auckland), shared a stage with ARIA award winning artist Jeff Lang, and released a single ‘Peace of Mind’ that went straight to #1 for two weeks on the Triple J Unearthed charts. With eyes to the future, Randles is set to release a new single – Peter – on all major streaming platforms, and will be having a special intimate launch at Smith’s Alternative, marking the end of his launch tour.

‘An accomplished fingerstyle guitarist … magnificent and beautiful’ – Nkechi Anele, Host - Triple J

‘A young gun on the guitar, I’d better watch out for him’ - Michael Fix, 3xGolden Guitar Awardee
