ED ROMANOFF & RACHAEL YAMAGATA
Ed Romanoff has lived in VA, WY, and NY collecting an array of songs ranging from cattle ranches to carnivals. He co-wrote and toured internationally with Mary Gauthier. “The Fifth of July,” with Mary Gauthier and Crit Harmon, won First Place for ‘Best Lyrics’ in the 2011 USA Songwriting Competition. His debut album, produced by Crit Harmon features Josh Ritter, Tift Merritt, Mary Gauthier and Meg Hutchinson. Ed lives in Brooklyn.
Rachael Yamagata has reunited with Happenstance producer, John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, Liz Phair) for her third studio album Chesapeake, the follow up to her heralded 2 CD Set Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart.
Praised by critics for her intimately confessional songwriting and arrangements, Rachael released her last album, Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart on Warner Bros. Records in October of 2008. Entertainment Weekly called her delivery “Gorgeous” and Rolling Stone said her “soulful, cigarette-scratched voice and melancholy lyrics recall Fiona Apple and PJ Harvey.” She toured extensively in support of the album playing to crowds throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Songs from the album appeared in various television programs and films including Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers and Sisters and more. She also made an appearance in the season finale of 30 Rock in 2009.
