Steeped in the rich tradition of Americana artists before him Randy Burk creates music that is at once exciting and familiar, honest and soulful, fearless and introspective. Wrought with Midwestern sensibility and a blue-collar work ethic, Burk’s affinity for songs about love, life and pain can be traced to his small-town Iowa roots. Since 2001 Burk has released two albums and toured the Midwest, the West Coast, and Europe. Averaging 200 shows a year. As well as having shared the stage with artists from Big Smith to Jason Aldean.
