"The music God has put in
me has no boundaries"
- Randy Banas
Randy Banas began his journey as a musician at age eleven upon receiving the gift of a first guitar from his uncle. He taught himself to play and began to perform with his church worship team. Later, Randy worked two years as a DJ on a major radio station in his hometown of Cagayan de Oro city in the Philippines. During those years, Banas dreamed of writing and singing his own songs one day.
Today, that dream has become a reality with the Christain artist's release of his first full-length album, "The Gospel". This bold introductory album showcases a wide range of musical, vocal, and lyrical talent that Randy is excited to share with international music fans.
Though a successful businessman, Randy has volunteered his musical talents for many years as the worship leader of his home church in the philippines. In 2017, banas began serving as worship leader at Church for All in Owensboro, Ky, U.S.A and continues in that role today.
While in the U.S., God inspired Randy to begin composing his first melodies and lyrics. Within a period of seven weeks Randy had composed over sixteen new songs. He continues to release new songs and hopes to expand his ministry in the United States.
"I will rejoice", "The Gospel", and "My God My Everything" are leading examples that Randy Banas has a gift to share with the world. Listeners can now experience this gift through three major channels: Global Distribution, Radio Airplay, and Live performance. In the coming months, live events are being planned in the U.S., Manila, Hong Kong, and Macau.
"Simple melodies of praise and
worship that honor the Lord"
