Rand’s tasteful and impressive guitar playing features fast legato and wide-interval runs, speedy harmonized lines, and tapping—as well as considerable acoustic guitar skills. Rand’s career highlights include work on Van Hunt’s self-titled, Grammy-nominated release in 2004; stints on Victor Wooten’s Live in America Tour; and recording with the Black Eyed Peas.Contact firstname.lastname@example.org; www.jermainerand.com
