Meryl Romer

Meryl Romer's first recorded outing as a jazz contralto is at once adventurous and articulate, playful yet sophisticated as she interprets jazz standards and makes them her own. Meryl's original pieces display an honesty only life can teach and her Dylan interpretation is a truly wonderful surprise.

Of her art, Meryl says, “Singing gives me a chance to open to and play with aspects of life that are an expansion of my daily landscape. The songs offer me an opportunity to explore a palette of characters, emotions, stories, rhythms and moods. It is through my voice that I experience the shapes, shadows and subtlety of the movements that allow me to step out of daily routine.”

“We all do laundry, make breakfast, and show up for work on time; music is a source that allows us to sweeten and soften our relationship to each moment. The music is my avenue to give voice to the yearnings of my heart and soul”.

“So Sure” includes three original pieces that tell Meryl's story of having “waited long enough” to follow and explore her singing passion. “I've often said that I have been singing these songs my whole life....I just never opened my mouth. I began whispering lyrics when I was 11 years old and gathered the courage to begin to sing forty years later.”

Her choice of songs reflects her feelings and fantasies about relationships, play, commitment and determination.
