At the age of six, I began my first music lessons on the violin. However, by my teenage years, I took up the guitar instead, moving from classical music of pop and indie rock covers. By the age of fourteen, I recorded my first song using basic equipment. After some initial encouragement, I invested into more professional equipment for my music and recordings.
In 2008, at the age of nineteen, I released my debut full-length album, Nocturnal Fables & Illusions. My album received praise from reviewers and became popular on the European streaming service, Jamendo, where it has over 800,000 listens. The album would also make its way to Canadian filmmaker Senthil Vinu, who would use select songs in his 2012 feature film Waiting for Summer.
Subsequently, I have released Trust LP in 2011, and The Apartment in 2017. Both garnered positive reviews from blogs such as Indie Rock Cafe and LA Music Critic. Many of my songs have become popular online, with YouTube star Stevie Ryan having featured the track Slapback from Trust LP in 2011, in a video which has over 160,000 views.
I have a deep interest and skills in both music creation and the recording process. Beyond doing my own mastering and mixing, I have also lent my expertise to others. In 2017, I tracked, mixed, and mastered a single for local Vancouver musician, Badgerchild. I had worked with her on my own album, The Apartment. I have also had a longstanding collaboration with my sister Sophy Romvari, whose films have been featured at major film festivals, such as the Toronto International Film Festival. My original musical work Black Sheep was featured in her 2019 short In Dog Years, which was commissioned by the CBC, and screens currently on CBC Gems. And most recently, my Simon and Garkfunkel’s Bookends cover was used in her short film Still Processing that premiered at TIFF and went on to win the Audience Choice award.
