"The perennial artist and NYC freelancer, craves to make her music dynamic with lyrical excellence and collateral vigor. She’s on her path to getting where she’s always dreamt of..."
Octavia Romano is a composer, guitarist and singer originally from Córdoba, Argentina. She relocated to New York City in 2011 and quickly got immersed in the downtown scene, playing in several bands at renowned stages including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Webster Hall.
She was a member of the “Lucky Cheng Orchestra”, the last ensemble led by composer, conductor and jazz cornetist Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris who invited her to perform on a four-month residency along some of the best improvisers in New York.
Besides working as a touring musician, she has written electro-acoustic and experimental pieces, chamber music and film scores, and her work as a composer has been awarded by the ASCAP Foundation. In 2016, she released her first album, “Compass”, a collaborative project with saxophonist and singer Stephanie Chou.
Her latest record “Aperta” represents Octavia Romano’s first statement as a solo artist. “Aperta” is about exposing the beautiful, the ugly, the raw emotions and honest thoughts: it is an open door to a new and unexplored creative path and artistic identity.
