Romancito is a singer-songwriter of what she terms “classic Americana,” which covers a lot of ground – from Bill Monroe to Tom Waits, or, Mavis Staples to Ani DiFranco. Usually only accompanied by a nylon-stringed guitar, Romancito’s arrangements of covers and originals strip them down to their most fundamental form. Her smoky, jazz-inflected vocals and stylized renderings make each song new, even if it’s been a part of the pop music fabric for a long time.
Romancito has performed as part of musical groups and combos for decades in Taos. She also participates in the Creative Commons which helps creators legally share knowledge and original materials, plus uses the internet to drive collaboration, development, growth and productivity. Creative Commons provides free, easy-to-use copyright licenses to make a simple and standardized way to give the public permission to share and use work. You can listen to these collaborations at Calling Sister Midnight.
Romancito has also worked as a freelance writer for many regional publications, including a long-standing relationship with the award-winning weekly newspaper The Taos News, where she has contributed regularly about local events, the arts, and the local music scene.
