About Randy Melick
My name is Randy Melick. I am a songwriter and guitarist. I began playing music when I was young and continue to write and play acoustic guitar music. I have been performing on college campuses and at wineries in the Midwest for many years. The music I write is similar to the Windham Hill group and Acoustic Alchemy as well as other New Age guitarists.
In 1998 I published a CD entitled ‘Acoustic Passages’. A song entitled Like the Wind was featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Guitar World magazine.
I currently write music for AT Peace Media in New York. My music is put into a stream and sold to Health Spas throughout the world: https://atpeacemedia.com/music/exclusive
