Randy & Dave are back and flying high with their second release, jam packed with songs featuring clever, cheeky lyrics that are laugh-out-loud funny paired with outstanding music. Randy is a little bit country, Dave is a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and together they add some jazz and blues. Peel away the layers of each song and listeners uncover something new every time they hear it.
You have to hear this to believe it!
Raves for ‘Life on a Trampoline’:
… joyous and uplifting, often fun with a few silly bits that keep the overall tone of the production light. The duo harmonize beautifully, often complimenting each other and passing lead vocals playfully. This is sure to be a hit with the whole family. VERDICT Pack this in the car for that long trip; you will enjoy listening to it over and over.

Listeners of all ages will find themselves delighted, time and again, by story-like songs in which cleverness and silliness abound. So amusing and well-crafted are the lyrics that just reading them (full color booklet with chords and lyrics included) is a treat. From the first song to the last, Life on a Trampoline represents children’s entertainment at its finest, good clean fun that inspires laughter, movement and unbridled playfulness.

I’m really digging the trend of the story song. And singer/songwriters Randy Sharp and Dave Kinnoin are experts at it. Containing a mash-up of musical genres, multi-layered lyrics and sophisticated instrumentation, Life on a Trampoline is a delight that listeners young and old will want to hear again and again.
