If Keith Richards, Joan Jett and Ray Charles could somehow spawn a love child, it’d be Romi Mayes (suitably pronounced RAW-ME). Hailing from Winnipeg, Canada, Romi is renowned as one of the hardest working independent musicians touring the globe today. Mayes has chipped away at the rock and roll stone over the past couple of decades, and now, this Juno nominated, five time WCMA award winner, has done it again.
Romi will be celebrating the release of her latest album “Devil on Both Shoulders” which was funded primarily by crowdfunding and donations from her fans. Devil on Both Shoulders will deliver a cool “JJ Cale, Beatles, Stones groove” says Mayes.
Mayes has shared the stage and toured with greats such as Derek Trucks, Levon Helm, Ricky Skaggs, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Jim Cuddy, Tom Russell, Martha Wainwright, Gurf Morlix, Sam Baker, Hayes Carll, Todd Snider, Jimmy LaFave, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, The Flatlanders, Sue Foley, Dale Watson, Fred Eaglesmith, Corb Lund, Blackie and The Rodeo Kings and many more.
Romi Mayes is a force to be reckoned with that will be a household name for years to come. She is only getting better with each album and one thing you can bet on is this hard core prairie gal has no plans to burn out or fade away.
