Biography

ROMNEY GETTY

Romney Getty sings with a purpose. To witness her perform is to attest to a world-class artist with a rare presence; she will diffuse your soul with a voice that was seemingly born from the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta, that resonates from a deep, forlorn place - from the core of her spirit.

Clearly, Romney was born to sing. But, Getty is a bona fide artist – an accomplished guitarist who possesses a distinctive gift for songwriting. She has an ability to seemingly channel the ghosts of country music past, like Hank Williams and June Carter Cash, weaving spellbinding tales of heartbreak, loss and redemption.

“Wherever this girl rambles next, success is sure to follow…(Getty) has the voice, the attitude and the poise to make it to the big time.” Chart Attack

Romney Getty has been gaining momentum since releasing her first album, the country blues-influenced Fill In Your Gray, which caught international attention and garnered her favorable reviews in international publications like Uncut, Mojo, The Times, Blues Matters, Americana UK Magazine, and more.

She has toured Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand and has shared the stage with a world-class roster of artists: Joe Cocker, KT Tunstall, Billy Bragg, Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo), Travis Good (The Sadies), Amy Winehouse, Kelly Joe Phelps, Toby Keith, Michael Franti’s Spearhead, Shannon Lyon, The Drive-by-Truckers, Kevin Breit, and many more.

“Wow, can this girl deliver a song or what! Romney is a singer-songwriter from Canada and her very personal and soulful deliver of country and blues is totally spellbinding.” Guitar Techniques Magazine

Romney Getty’s latest release Ramblin’ Girl was recorded in the converted church in Hamilton, Ontario, at Catherine North Studio with the late producer Dan Achen. For Ramblin’ Girl she enlisted the help of friends’ Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo) on pedal steel guitar, and Colin Cripps (Bryan Adams, Kathleen Edwards) on guitar, along with her talented guitarist and musical companion, brother Jeff Getty. Ramblin’ Girl continues to receive accolades and critical attention due to the strength of the Romney’s solid track-by-track performances and songwriting, complimented by Achen’s lush and swampy production that brings to mind the melodic rock of Fleetwood Mac and the grit of a Lucinda Williams.

Currently, Romney is working on her follow up to Ramblin’ Girl, to be released in the fall of 2013. She continues to tour, performing selected dates as a solo artist and with her band.

Lyrics

When the Smoke is Clear

Written By: Romney Getty

when you need a nightmare to run blood from your veins to your heart,
when you need a light on, to drive a knife through this blanket of dark.
when the cold wind blows, sends a chill through your sorrow and fear, and when its all over, I see your face through the shadow my dear..
Chorus
will you come back when the smoke is clear
" "
Will I see you this time next year
and will you come back..when the smoke is clear.

The times go on changin, and our lives become words to a song,
and maybe this time our little feet fill the boots they belong
Chorus

Four Seasons

Written By: Romney Getty

OUt in a town in a Northern Light
Don't wanna listen don't know who's right
I wanna know, I wanna know
where the rain won't go

Walk away from home Ontario land
need a new life I wanna understand
I wanna know
where the rain won't go

And I'll see you then
When the rains fall down again

Toes in the sand and I lie awake
thinking about time and the life I'll make
I wanna know
where the rain won't go

ANd I'll see you then
when the rains fall down again

Suns gone down and the warm air's gone
sitting by the fire tell a story about a song

I wanna know
where the rain won't go
and I'll see you then
when the rains fall down again
repeat
