Romanelli’s clear voice, sassy spirit, and earthy song-writing meld in songs about doubt, love, and keeping going.
Her singing is direct, like Alison Krauss and Ingrid Michaelson, and her songwriting heartfelt, like Dar Williams and Joni Mitchell.
Music blog Lucid Culture hails Elaine as a ’tremendous singer’, and raves about ‘Real Deal’, calling it “vivid, aphoristic, often metaphorically charged”. At live shows she gets high marks for her funny stories and high-energy performing.
Elaine tours nationally, playing around a hundred shows a year in listening rooms, house concerts, festivals (including SXSW), and colleges.
Elaine has also appeared on TV on the TLC hit ‘What Not to Wear’, airing internationally, and off-Broadway, as part of the critically acclaimed production Brundibar (Tony Kushner, Maurice Sendak). Her debut EP ‘Better By Far’ sold out twice on CD Baby, and the track ‘FLY’ was included on two compilations.
Elaine was raised in suburban Philadelphia, PA, Manhattan, KS, and lived in San Francisco, CA before re-locating to her current home, New York City.
This will be Romanilli’s second appearance at the Opera House within the year. Her keyboard skills were on full display when she joined performers from throughout the Midwest for the Farmette Concert last April.
Season Passes and General Admission Tickets will be available at the door or may be reserved by calling (419) 237-3111 and leaving a request for tickets.
As always, a reception will follow the concert.
