A prolific member of the underground music & art scene in downtown Los Angeles, Rome da Luce is an award-winning singer/songwriter, performance artist, visual artist, photographer, and producer. With a two solo EPs and three full length albums, including one with his side project, The Ruby Of Rome, Rome has performed extensively across the US, in Europe, Asia, and Central America. More recently Rome has broken into the festival circuit performing at Burning Man, Lightning In A Bottle, and Convergence Presents: Shadows Of Light.
Rome's original abstract expressionism art has been shown in galleries and other creative spaces in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and he recently independently published his first coffee table book, AbstractRomeAntics, featuring his art, photography, and lyrics from previously released songs. The inaugural popup gallery event for NudeArtLA prominently featured work from the AbstractRomeAntics photo series. In addition to the new Lustmord EP, Rome is continuing his attempts to amalgamate his various creative avenues by working on a new canvas series in which he incorporates his song lyrics with the artwork.
Through music, performance, and art, Rome finds both recognition and concealment. With an inimitable, passionate, unapologetic performance style infused with surprising moments of heart-breaking tenderness, Rome is permissive to his audiences. He invites them to let their walls down and be shamelessly vulnerable in the seeking of truth and service of love.
Rome's new EP, Lustmord, is brand new sonic territory for Rome, and will be available on all platforms April 13th, 2018.
