About Randy Melick

My name is Randy Melick. I am a songwriter and guitarist. I began playing music when I was young and continue to write and play acoustic guitar music. I have been performing on college campuses and at wineries in the Midwest for many years. After becoming acquainted with alternate tunings, I began to write music like to the Windham Hill group and Acoustic Alchemy as well as other New Age guitarists.

In 1998 I published a CD entitled ‘Acoustic Passages’. A song entitled Like the Wind was featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Guitar World magazine.

I currently write music for AT Peace Media in New York. My music is put into a stream and sold to Health Spas throughout the world:

The music I write combines acoustic melodies with harmonies with sounds of nature such as thunderstorms and ocean waves. I found that tuning my music to the frequencies of the sounds from Humpback Whales and other marine life can help with stress reduction and anxiety. In fact, some of this music is used in Autistic research centers specifically for autistic children to help them sleep.

It is quite easy. Listening to the whales is a first-time experience for most individuals. When they focus on the whale songs played in the music, they seem to relax enough to go to sleep. It just works.

My latest CD projects include Whales with Guitars, CHILL, Caribbean Nights, and Whiter Than Snow which is a vocal album. There is enough variety for most people to choose from as I continue to produce music.

In 2017 and 2019 I conducted musical seminars for the purpose of educating people on how to lower stress and anxiety by identifying with music.
