ROMES with Lisette Xavier | The Gateway | Thursday, 08. February 2018

Virgin Radio Calgary Presents: ROMES with Lisette Xavier live on February 8th at The Gateway!

Tucked away in Kensington Market, Downtown Toronto’s most culturally diverse neighborhood, ROMES converted the basement of their semi-detached red-brick into their full time rehearsal space. For the past year, the band relentlessly spent their waking hours there, exploring their eclectic tastes in music and ultimately writing the tracks for their debut EP "Believe".

ROMES have harnessed their pop sensibilities into an alternative sound that is completely their own. With soulful melodies and bright, funky guitar riffs playing off gritty synths, the tracks are instant, high-energy, anthemic ear candy. These larger-than-life tunes, backboned by thumping, hip-hop rhythms and disco-inspired bass-lines, put a modern twist on the group’s early musical inspirations.

"I was forced into piano lessons at the age of 5, only to quit 3 years later. My reason was simple; I didn't want to play someone else's music."

Lisette Xavier is a Canadian singer/songwriter who has found a way to write pop music with depth and substance. Lisette has taken a step away from the generic 'happy love song' epidemic and finds inspiration through her endless ambition and sometimes tragic experiences. Often taking on a dark undertone, her songs are a reminder that even in our darkest moments we are not alone.
