When you think of the long-time pillars of the Charlotte, NC music scene, you may think of bands like The Spongetones, Antiseen, or Lenny Federal. But hanging around, playing in the background for just as many years is Randy Franklin.

Randy is a native Charlottean who grew up in the 1970s, when Charlotte was a much different town. Getting his first guitar for Christmas at the wee age of 6, Randy began playing in earnest, and as a high school student, began jamming with local bands and performing solo throughout the Charlotte area.

Teaming with Gina Stewart (Blind Dates, Doubting Thomas, Volatile Baby) in the early 80s, the pair toured the bars and clubs of the Carolinas, playing honky-tonk country rock and original tunes. In the latter part of the decade, Randy formed the Providence Drive Band; a bluegrass meets high energy rock-n-roll. With Ed Leitch (Halifax) on lead guitar, and Randy on guitar and banjo, the foundation was laid of what would eventually morph into Crisis, the band Randy led for more than a decade.

Crisis released 5 critically acclaimed albums and received radio airplay and record sales from Sweden to Japan. As the band’s primary songwriter, Randy forged the crunchy pop, unmistakable sound of Crisis.

In 2013 Randy formed his solo band “Randy Franklin & The Sardines” and released his first solo album, “Bloodlines”. He has spent the last five years touring and promoting his original songs with the Sardines, while recording new music for the follow up album, “Coastlines”, to be released in Spring of 2019.

Randy is a 3-time nominee for best America Artist with the Queen City Music Awards, and his song “I’m gonna miss it” was featured on the soundtrack of the award winning documentary film “Live From The Double Door Inn: The Incredible True Story of the Legendary Music Club.
