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.
A sassy, sexy jazz vocal outing with some real depth..fun stuff that's really going to take you by surprise.
