Randall Shreve blends melody, mischief, and passion on his sophomore release "The Entertainer." From the opening notes of "Welcome to the Show," he takes the listener on an experience that rivals P. T. Barnum himself. Songs like "Hollywood," "King of the Silver Screen," and "The Entertainer" highlight his soulful vocals that compliment his vaudevillian indie rock.
Recorded at Legacy Studios in NYC, "The Entertainer" is similar to his debut "The Cure for Yesterday" in that it is a concept record with an interwoven story throughout the songs. "The Entertainer" is the tale of a man who runs from love and follows his ambition to be an actor, only to find he cannot escape the inevitable. Shreve's musical evolution can clearly be heard that he has confronted and embraced his darker, eclectic side, while still keeping the perfect blend of his gentle "crooner" qualities in tact.
Shreve came out of nowhere, it would seem, with "The Cure For Yesterday", his solo debut. However, he was no stranger to the music industry having played drums for 3-time Dove award nominated rock band, GS Megaphone.
Before 2006, Randall had produced and/or played drums on over 50 recordings, toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Canada with several Grammy award winning bands, and even found time to make an appearance in a film starring Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom. But it wasn't till May of 2006 that Randall released "The Cure For Yesterday", his solo debut, and let the world know who he really is. Now, with the "Entertainer," he is ready to give the people the greatest show on Earth. The Entertainer is set to release October 14th, 2008.
