Rome Ramirez Biography
“‘Dedication’ is the song that sparked this whole project and set the tone for the entire EP,” says Rome. “I really believe in being 100 percent personal and honest with my songwriting. So in my songs I’m telling you everything—what I’m drinking, what I’m smoking, who I’m talking to. Every song is like a page out of my diary.”
The four-track Dedication EP showcases Rome’s uncommon penchant for pairing his gutsy, soul-baring lyrics with breezy melodies and a genre-warping diversity of sound. Made in collaboration with A-list producers and songwriters like fun. frontman Nate Ruess, Jeff Bhasker (Jay-Z, Kanye West, fun.), Benny Blanco (Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa), Robopop (Lana Del Rey, Gym Class Heroes), and The Futuristics (The Lonely Island feat. Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga), the EP also elegantly blends larger-than-life beats and reggae-inspired flourishes with guitars that swing from scorching electric riffs to graceful acoustic strumming.
