What happens when science, theology, offbeat humor and art collide? Well, the correct answer would be Randy Brown. At the unlikely juxtaposition of these topics lies some of the smartest and most unlikely Americana/Folk music you are apt to hear anywhere. Randy is an award-winning songwriter, self-proclaimed performing philosopher and arts columnist with a penchant for writing songs on topics most songwriters never even consider, such as an ode to Schrodinger's cat, talking to extraterrestrials with a flashlight, deities who chew Redman while wearing overalls or even testosterone poisoning to name a few. Despite the odd turns, his songs are accessible to everyone and often illuminate the dark corners of our existence that are too seldom brought to light. So what is his music like? Well, imagine Charles Darwin meeting Guy Clark and Van Morrison at an MIT BBQ celebrating Albert Einstein's birthday. That about covers it. His latest project, BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... (Independently Released) is a collection of songs that are intertwined with each other, and as Randy says, "...attempting to define and refine my personal relationship with that which is beyond my ability to know." He continues, "It's my little statement of faith as it were. Not the strong, sure faith of spiritual certainty but rather the 1 step forward, 3 steps back method I have used to understand the universe. I am not a person of deep faith. I am a man full of doubts, questions and logic. Those things do not make for a settled belief system. They make for a fractured landscape, an ever changing kaleidoscope of vignettes and half-remembered dreams. These things describe the place at which I arrived at for the creation of BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... But be assured they do not describe the place I am going or even where I was when the project was completed. Because for me, this is a never-ending journey of discovery. Because every answer I receive causes me to ask another question and because I am at peace that for me the process works. Welcome to my life." BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE...
