Circuline is excited to continue announcing the Guest Guitarists for the second album, “Counterpoint”.
Guest #6 of 7: Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance, The Fringe, Pink Floyd Experience). Randy, one of the most prolific musicians out there, recently returned from a European tour with the Jane Getter Premonition, then left immediately to go back out on tour with the Pink Floyd Experience. He and his band The Fringe will be performing this May at the Rites of Spring festival (RoSfest), where they will be having their CD release party.
Andrew Colyer met Randy on the Moody Blues Cruise and Cruise to the Edge in 2014. Randy was performing with Sound of Contact, Andrew was performing with the Prog Rock Orchestra, and when Circuline needed a singer-songwriter for their first album, they called Randy.
Randy contributed lyrics, melodies, and vocals for “Return”, and is again contributing lyrics and melodies for the seven vocal songs on this upcoming album, “Counterpoint”.
Randy is also contributing guitar tracks to the instrumental piece “New Day”. We’re excited and grateful to be working with him!

Circuline is excited and proud to announce that Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) will be performing on the Debut Album, slated for release in December 2014.
Lo-Fi Resistance is the creation of 26 year-old guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Randy McStine. Founded in 2009, Lo-Fi Resistance has released three albums highlighting a striking blend of progressive rock musicality, melodic pop sensibility, and among many other attributes, a strong penchant for songcraft and experimentation. In the studio, McStine has collaborated with members of King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Spock’s Beard, King’s X, and more to bring a special quality to these songs. The latest album, The Age Of Entitlement, is a true solo venture, with McStine taking on all instrument and production duties. Aside from Lo-Fi Resistance, McStine can be seen on tour handling guitar and vocals for Sound Of Contact and The Pink Floyd Experience.
Circuline is happy and excited to be working with Randy as a singer-songwriter, contributing lyrics, melodies, and vocal harmonies for their Debut Album.
