If Randevyn\'s album's optimistic tone is any indication of success, he\'s well on his way to claiming a position at the top of the game. Being the product of a singing preacher and an attorney, Randevyn's early life was filled with musical guidance from dad and lessons in academics and business savvy from mom. "My dad was the first singer I ever saw perform live", Randevyn recalls. "He would sing and play piano for himself; he was so good. Eventually, I grew to become the same kind of musician by default. I remember seeing newspaper articles lying around the house with pictures of my dad singing and playing. Mom would always make sure he got paid - she didn't play games even then!" After years of playing for his father's congregation in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the teenaged musician and singer affectionately known by his friends and family as "Randee", was bid farewell as he headed to Atlanta, Georgia in pursuit of a musical career. This journey wouldn't be met without the adversity of unemployment, constant label rejections and countless unsuccessful, national auditions including Fox's American Idol (Season 2). Using the early business sense drilled into him by his mother, Randevyn partnered with investor and former manager Sincere Johnson of Sin.

This 2005 independent effort would introduce Randevyn to a national audience as well as bolt international radio spins.

After a conversation with Arie during a 2007 tour, Randevyn decided to take an even more active role in the production of his music. It was back to the piano for the former church musician, as Randevyn began recording his musical ideas for his sophomore project, which felt more like his very first album ever. Later, he established a collaboration with record producer, Mike Phillips of The DrummerBoyz Club to release The Randevyn Project.
