A producer for singer-songwriters
— This is Dominic Romano.
Dominic is a professional producer and recording engineer based out of California. He received his degree in Music & Recording Arts from Bennington College, learning from such greats as David Baron (The Lumineers, Meghann Trainor), Julie Last (Joni Mitchell, Neil Young) and Scott Lehrer (Meredith Monk, Rufus Wainright). He has been working as a full-time engineer and producer since 2015 from his home project studio as well as at Northern California’s multi-room facility Bongo Boy Studio (www.bongoboystudio.com).
Dominic’s work as a producer is marked by a high level of attention to detail and respect for the artist’s intent for a song.
“He just knows exactly where a song should go and how to get it to that point -- even when I myself am having difficulty explaining my thoughts in musical terms” - Michael Dayvid (www.Michaeldayvid.com)
