Artist Biography:
Listening to singer/songwriter Alicia Romano's debut album, "Happiness Is..." is like being given the privilege of an intimate glimpse into her soul - bold, forthcoming, breathtaking. Born and raised in the outskirts of Pittsburgh, where she continues to reside, Alicia has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to examine her life experiences from an unbiased perspective and unabashedly share them with all who will listen. From her beautifully poignant, "I Met A Girl," to her upbeat, optimistic title song, "Happiness Is," Alicia has cultivated a remarkable ability to draw listeners into her world through her soulful lyrics and expressively rich voice. Alicia credits such complex and talented musicians as Dar Williams, Ani DiFranco, and Patty Griffin as influential in the development of her style and sound. As is customary of acoustic folk artists, Alicia's live performances are engaging and emotive for the audience, drawing them in through her comfortable, yet intense, storytelling style. When asked to describe her music, Alicia flashes her charming, heart-warming smile and says simply, "I write about love." Anyone who is fortunate enough to experience one of her performances becomes wholeheartedly aware of how full, complex, and encompassing love, throughout her lifetime, has been and continues to be.
