Randy Courtney
(Guitar, Loops, Synth & Vocals)

Hailing from Lenoir, NC Randy has been an electric and acoustic guitar freak since age 13. He immersed himself in music learning all styles including rock, blues, funk, R & B, classical, metal and jazz. Randy's enthusiasm, devotion and work ethic have allowed him to blend all his influences into a style entirely his own. Over time he has matured into an exciting showman and performer who also possesses a soulful and versatile voice. Randy also has years of experience in live sound, audio recording and production, and video editing and production. His unique live use of guitar synthesizer and loops allow SOULWATT to sound more like a 6 piece band!

Having grown up in Boone, NC and now residing in his hometown of Hickory, Ben is a seasoned vocalist, bassist, and guitarist who is a veteran of the music scene with talent and chops to spare. His versatile command of stringed instrument stylings combines seamlessly with an incredible voice that sounds great on lead and harmony vocals. Ben started out on guitar but eventually switched over to bass and was influenced by the styles of Oteil Burbridge, Muzz Skillings and Gary Willis. Fishbone, Crowded House, and Radiohead are some of his favorite bands. Ben's consistent professionalism and impressive bass and vocal skills make him an essential part of the SOULWATT sound!
