Olivia Romano on the Monday Traffic Jam Nov 23rd


Tune in to a special edition of the Monday Traffic Jam with your host Bobbie Dusenberry and singer songwriter Olivia Romano.  Not only will she play live for you, but she will also pick out some music.  What will this charming 17 year old play for you?  Tune in between 3:30 – 6:00 to find out!

At 13 years old, Olivia Romano  picked up her dad’s guitar and shut herself into her room for hours, day after day, and taught herself how to play guitar with no other instruction except by ear. She also wrote her first song “Breathe” this same year.

Now at age 17, Olivia hopes to pursue her career as an aspiring singer-songwriter. With just one listen, you already know that she has the voice and song writing talent to make this happen. Her vocal range goes all over the place, but as a soprano she can hit the E or F notes with ease.   She’s had one year of training by a vocal coach who told her she has many “colors” in her voice.

As a song writer, Olivia writes her music first before she writes the lyrics. “I lean towards indie-folk, but other people have told me I sound like I write soul music”. She draws inspiration from some of her favorite artists including Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, KT Tunstall, ZZ Ward, Ed Sheeran, and “really anything blues”. You can hear Olivia play around at local open mic nights and is looking for more exposure around the Tampa Bay area.
