Buy him a scotch sometime and he'll tell you about the time he sold a song to Disney or how his voice is the first thing you hear on Gym Class Heroes' smash hit "Cupid's Chokehold," whether you want to hear those stories or not. (Scotch optional.)
In 2021 he released his first solo project, The Tips of My Fingers.
Rand co-wrote the theme song to Disney's Fillmore, and (True Story) his voice is the first thing you hear on Gym Class Heroes' Billboard top five hit "Cupid's Chokehold".
