Praise for Elaine
There is a quiet elegance to Elaine Romanelli's music, a thoughtfulness and intelligence that complements and underscores the stark beauty of her lyrics and melodies. ... Her themes are often quirky, her points of view unexpected, even startling, but always intellectually involving and emotionally moving. It surely is no coincidence that one of the songs on Elaine's wonderful new album is titled "Shine". Shine she does, and beautifully so.
Every week I thank Elaine for all that she brings to the community. It's not only that she has such a beautiful voice. It is that, with her voice and her music, she brings out more joy in each of us.
Elaine's music: it is humbling to hear these songs. Her strong voice and cogent compositions are so very impressive... her graceful control is abundantly clear. There is real confidence here, something I rarely hear in similar music.
