Randi Driscoll is an exceptional singer and songwriter whose original music, angelic voice and passionate stage performances have earned her many accolades including; Campus Activities Magazine's, "Female Performer of the Year 2004" and "Best Small Venue Performer 2004". Her performance credits include opening slots for Bob Weir's Ratdog, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Dar Williams, Jonatha Brooke, Pat Benatar, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne and many others. Randi has performed at Lincoln Center in the "Bang on a Can Festival", the 2001 HRC dinner in Washington, D.C., with keynote speaker, Hillary Clinton, and the New York City Hall Pride Awards honoring Whoopi Goldberg and Olympia Dukakis. Randi's music has been featured in docu- mentaries, commercials, and the WB hit series, "Dawson's Creek".

Without any major label behind her, Randi has been able to sell over 20,000 CDs and successfully tour the country, building a devoted following. Randi's greatest personal accomplishment is her song, "What Matters", written in 1998, in response to the death of Matthew Shepard, a young man killed in a brutal hate crime. The song was written to honor his life, his family and the unconditional love they represent. "What Matters" has become the official benefit single for the Matthew Shepard Foundation, a charity started by Matthew's parents whose goal is to replace hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance. To date, the benefit single has raised nearly $50,000 for the foundation and has been featured in several documentaries as well as a commercial directed by Spike Lee that aired during the 1999 Academy Awards.

"What Matters" was also featured in the NBC film, "The Matthew Shepard Story", starring Sam Waterston and Stockard Channing. Proceeds from the sheet music also benefit the foundation exclusively and the choral version of "What Matters", arranged by Kevin Robison, has been performed all over the world, including concerts at New York's Carnegie Hall, Place des Artes in Montreal, and the Disney Hall in Los Angeles. A documentary based on the making of Randi's song, "What Matters", has won several film awards, including the 2006 Summit International Silver Award Winner in Creative Excellence and the Spring 2006 DV Award Winner. Randi has performed the song over 1,500 times and the film documents Randi's journey with this song, her travels performing it nationwide, and the creation of the music video. Randi, a New Jersey native, now resides in "America's Finest City," San Diego, California. She is an independent artist who tours and performs year round at colleges, clubs, festivals, and benefit concerts.
