Elaine Romanelli is an NYC-based nationally touring musician, originally from Havertown, PA. Her music is folk/pop with a Celtic feel, and she sings and plays keyboard. Her clear voice, energetic presence, and lyrically-driven songs continue the line from Joni Mitchell to Amanda Palmer.
She plays about a hundred shows a year across the country, at listening venues like the Tin Angel, as well as house concerts, colleges, and festivals, including SXSW, and last year’s inaugural Haverford Music Festival.
Her album Real Deal spins on terrestrial and online radio stations, including syndicated public radio. Real Deal also has been featured in print and online publications from New York to Nebraska, including here at home. Hailed as “vivid, aphoristic, metaphorically charged” (Lucid Culture) and “pulsing with realistic optimism” (Main Line Times) the CD is beautifully varied in tone and tempo.
In addition to singing and writing songs, Elaine has produced, directed, acted, arranged, composed, and taught. She also has been on TV (TLC’s “What Not to Wear”) and Off-Broadway (Brundibar/But the Giraffe). When not engrossed in music-making, Elaine loves to cook, read, and dance.
