Randy Miritello is a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter; founder of the band Hop City Hellcats and co-founding member of the Horseshoe Lounge Playboys. His career began in the late 80s in rural Tioga County, NY where he was raised in a rich community of old-time and country musicians. Inspiration led Randy to the road where he developed his own musical voice while playing old-time fiddle and guitar with friends who went on to form Old Crow Medicine Show. Since then, Randy has performed in front of audiences across the country opening for legendary acts such as Steve Earle, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Levon Helm Band, among others. Randy’s most current projects focus on storytelling through his songwriting, going back to his acoustic roots, and performing solo shows. In 2022, he signed a songwriting development deal with SMS Nashville, which is ongoing.
