Biography

Rom was born on december 11 1977 in the Philippines Islands. His family moved to the U.S. when he was 5 years old. He was raised in Northern Virginia in surrounding suburbs outside Washington D.C. At 19 Rom moved to Philadelphia to study art. He left after two years and move to Los Angeles in 2000. He immediately got involved in writing and meditation. He injured his foot and took time off from his day job. During this time he immersed himself in writing songs. Needless to say, he didnt return to the same job, song writing became a priority and the rest is history.
Finding a place in this world so that I can connect, learn, and inspire to communicate what I experience through life. The world we live in today only matters if you can find your place to expand spiritually. I find that in music. I find growth in the world. Exploring the grounds from which passionate singer-songwriters venture upon, Rom stakes his own territory in rock, folk, and soul. A grassroots voice compelled to share his music, Rom moved from a small town in Virginia to Los Angeles manifesting songs from rock to charging folk tunes. Roms songs are riveted with melodies haunted by his own seeking soul. Primitive guitar, raw, and and fine tuned lyrics results in quality songwriting delivering an allure that quenches the thirst of meaning laid on grasping melodies.

Lyrics

Canvas

Written By: Rom

You are the picture that i have in mind
Just like the feeling in the turn of time
Before an easel and a hole on the wall
Ive known
Show me how deeper ill be holding on
To every color and the needing of
Throw in the common maybe leave the grey
Ive known
Paint all the roses in red in a sea and bed
And i know
Paint all the color in you let me see you true
And I know
And now an ocean we are sailing on
Through every island bend the hedon palm
And all the ivy feeding emptiness
Ive known
Paint all the roses in red in a sea and bed
And i know
Paint all the color in you let me see you true
And i know
Paint all the love in the sky your the reason why
That i know

Rock soul ride

Written By: Rom

Can I call you mine rhythm rhyme
If I call you by would you be mine
Is it moving fast
Setting seasons pass
Im a beat Im a roll
Sailing seas of the soul
When Im feeling so high
Im on a rock soul ride
Youre on a rock soul ride
When I hold you wrapped
Wouldnt get up
Now bring the beat to the vein
Bring rain
Is it moving fast
Setting seasons pass
Im a beat Im a roll
Sailing seas of the soul
When Im feeling so high
Im on a rock soul ride
Youre on a rock soul ride
Youre on a rock soul
Youre on a rock soul
Youre on a rock soul ride
Is it moving fast
Setting seasons pass
Im a beat Im a roll
Sailing seas of the soul
When Im feeling so high
Im on a rock soul ride
Youre on a rock soul ride
Youre on a rock soul
Youre on a rock soul
Youre on a rock soul ride
