Ranford Almond Band

ranford almond singing on stage

Bringing the soul from Greensboro, North Carolina, Ranford Almond is a young singer/songwriter and trobador that has begun to make his mark across the Southeast. Raspy fresh vocals meet the Appalachian strings of Ranford’s guitar, reminiscent of John Prine and Townes Van Zandt with his own unique stamp. Furthermore, his talent extends far beyond composition and strumming, as he is a warrior with the electric as well. Ranford plays as a solo artist as well as fronting a full band. He also plays lead in the Greensboro based psychedelic folk collective Viva La Muerte.
The year 2020 saw the release of Ranford Almond’s debut EP entitled “Back Burner,” which is available on all streaming platforms and highlights his songwriting and arranging abilities. Additionally, at only 21 years of age he has played the stages of major venues and festivals such as Shakori Hills, The Big What?, Mantrabash, The Heap, Mayday on Mcgee and more. He has shared the stage with Big Something, The Mantras, Pink Talking Fish, The Wright Avenue, and plays in a duo with Casey Cranford where they don the title “Cranford & Ranford.” Recently, Ranford played Winston-Salem’s Drive-In under the bright lights of the big stage.

Ranford Almond is back in the studio as 2021 opens and will be releasing his forthcoming EP shortly, following “Back Burner,” the new record will feature another collection of all original songs.
“Mature. These days, it is not a term commonly used to describe someone of Ranford Almond’s age. However, with his debut EP, Back Burner, young Ranford displays a maturity in his songwriting that belies his young 21 years of age. Throughout this short journey of folksy tunes, abundant with lyrical depth and emotional songwriting, it can be easy for the listener to mistake these songs as those of a much more rugged and traveled character, grizzled by years of burden and heartbreak.”
-Ryan McBrayer, The Jamwich
