Michelle Romary is a Cleveland based singer, songwriter, lyricist, and recording artist. Since 2015, she has released and self published 3 solo EPs, the newest entitled, Grounded, in her 4-part EP series. Described by Danielle Immerman, formerly of Cleveland Scene Magazine, as having "...incredible songwriting ability and amazing vocals..." her most recent EP, Grounded, blends rock with elements of western, reggae, ska, punk, and pop. She pushes the boundaries of popular music by creating powerful imagery through her introspective lyrics, blending rock and classical vocal stylings, and disregarding traditional genre rules.
Michelle will be bringing her full band to the Beachland show, featuring Efraín Hernández (drums), Jimmi Chance (guitars, vocals), Brent Hamker (guitar), and some special guest musicians.
“Her voice and her lyrics have the ability to say it, rather sing it, like it is. There’s no bullshit behind anything. Her lyrics are inspired by her everyday life, making them relatable to every listener, and her vocals are pure and untampered. In a day when pretty much every song that makes it onto the radio has been manipulated ten-times over, it’s refreshing to hear music that sounds as good live as it does recorded. Romary is the real deal...”
— Danielle Immerman, Cleveland Scene Magazine
