Bio

Raised in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Randy Hathaway was born in Yakima, Washington and resides in Seattle, Washington.  He has been a performer, teacher, administrator, composer, arranger and producer.  Within Randy's compositions, the inherent sceneries of North America speak clearly through his use of tonality, while musical languages of European and Latin origins are respectfully echoed.  The encompassing of these elements can be heard on Mr. Hathaway’s
2017 CD release, Classical Guitar In America

Randy attended Cornish College of the Arts where he holds a Bachelors of Music in performance.  Following graduation, he performed and arranged music with two chamber ensembles.  Composition seamlessly spun out of these experiences.  Randy’s
first composition was performed live on the radio just two months after completion.  That piece then made its way to the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet for multiple performances.  Soon after, a colleague performed Randy's first solo guitar work in Japan to an enthusiastic reception.  Universities and colleges have since invited Mr. Hathaway to coach faculty and students in performance of his compositions
and arrangements.

In 2014, Randy recruited eighteen musicians to start recording his CD, Classical Guitar In America.  He also recruited ten artists who contributed images for the sheet music and CD cover. The totality of the project came to completion in 2017. 

The next comprehensive project on the horizon brings Randy back to his love of arranging with an homage to American composers.                                 (Seem interesting?  Visit Project Donation on menu.) 
New compositions and a piano arrangement are also in the works.

Mr. Hathaway, I just wanted to let you know that I have programmed your Gypsy de Malaga for my Evening Concert program on Hawai'i Public Radio THIS evening.  I lived for awhile in southern Spain - between Cadiz & Seville -- I even had some lessons in Sevillanas, the local folk dance -- your piece brought back happy/exciting memories. ”
