Austrian-American singer Adelheid Winkler (Heidi) grew up mostly in Detroit, Michigan, where she met the young and eager Robert Andrew Bowman in her early twenties. Rob had planned to start his own band after he had been in several industrial and electronic bands in the Detroit music scene. The two hit it off instantly musically and Randolph’s Grin was born.
The band released their debut album „Melt“ in 1997 on “Metropolis” and the Germany based label „Out Of Line“ caught interest and released the song „Indulgence“ on one of their compilations. After the release of their E.P. „Details“, the band went on a hiatus, during which Robert moved to Los Angeles to follow his career as producer and songwriter while Heidi moved back to Salzburg, the city of her birth.
In 2015 the two decided to reunite and release their first music after almost 15 years. „Dragon Road“ – mixed and produced by John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode) – was released worldwide via 2808/Rough Trade. The band toured Europe together with German NDH band „Unzucht“ and UK based alternative band „Darkhaus“.
