Randy Seedorff has been writing and performing for over 30 years, with his interest in music starting at the young age of 11 when his mother gave him his first guitar. But it was during his teens that he met singer, songwriter, guitarist and good friend Bill Abernathy. They frequently appeared at local venues in the Kansas City Area playing Americana and folk covers as well as co-written original tunes. That friendship and collaboration continues today.
In 1992 Randy joined the popular Kansas City based bluegrass group Greenside Up as its lead singer and guitarist, and performed with them until 1999. During that time he fell victim to an armed robbery that profoundly changed his life. The experience turned his full attention to both his life and music, and he rededicated himself to serving God. From 1999-2001 Randy studied at Midwestern Theological Seminary majoring in Church Music, and began serving as a worship leader.
In 2006, Randy met British born singer songwriter, recording artist and “brother from another mother” Shane Rootes and joined him as part of the worship leader team at River of Life Church in Kansas City, MO.
Randy founded the group Soul Purpose in 2010. They released their studio album Rearview Mirror, produced by Larry Gann and Matt Russo, of Awestruck Studios, in 2014.
Randy serves as worship and discipleship pastor at Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Independence, MO.
A prolific song-writer, Randy is a member of both ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) and GMA (Gospel Music Association).
