Using his philosophy and gender studies background, Rome engages with topics and problems that many refuse to tackle. This willingness to engage with unknowns and uncertainties is central to his music and performances.
While Rome is no stranger to the stage, he finds deep purpose in creating songs that connect with audiences off stage. He understands that his privileged position as a white and cisgender man already gives him a platform that many people do not have.
After some reflection and work in the studio, Rome began a phase of consistent releases. In 2017, he established a strong presence, releasing a 13 songs that amassed over 1 million streams, as well as several music videos to support those releases. Rome has gained the attention and support of dozens of blogs, including notable sites/channels such as Earmilk, Elevator and Promoting Sounds.
Rome began 2018 by releasing a collaboration EP with producer Nick Anthony
, which only increased the momentum in anticipation of his full-length solo project, So Much For So Long, which was released on June 29th.
