The Attic Classic: Singer and songwriter Randy Mauger is a long-time fixture on the local music scene, having performed for over five decades. His life experiences and personal observations have informed his original songs, which he’s focused upon for the last 25 years.
In 2021, Randy released ‘Make Them All Smile,’ the title of a track on the album and a reference to an attitude to have when performing for others, whether it be covers or originals. The collection of 10 songs spans the many years he’s been writing his own and covers a range of styles.
The Attic Classic “Here I Go” dates back to 1992. As Randy explains, the song is a reflection on the two occupations he knew the most about back then, truck driving and music, and the realization that both provided benefits that one occupation or the other wouldn’t by itself.
