Java Blend: Randy Weeks

Duration: 27:26 (Full Program)
Program: Java Blend #106
Broadcast Date: Jan. 6, 2011

On the fringes of country music are some truly enjoyable artists. One of these artists is Randy Weeks. Probably best known to many country music fans as the writer of the oft-recorded rocker “Can’ t Let Go,” Weeks has been writing and recording interesting music for many years. Randy Weeks writes amazingly well crafted, beautifully melodic songs and delivers them with his own brand of laid back vocals and surfboard cool, very hip approach” says Lucinda Williams, who included his song “Can’t Let Go” as the sole cover on her Grammy winning album, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road.

The Los Angeles Times names Weeks “Artist to Watch in 2009,” saying he “puts together a batch of consistently evocative, witty lyrics that he sings in a distinctively wry Lou Reed-meets-Willie Nelson voice.
