Sol Romero
Understated, mysterious and seductive are the qualities that have propelled this singer-songwriter's debut single 'I'm Here To Stay' up the charts and into the hearts of listeners across the globe.

Sol Romero was born in Mexico City to a Swiss mother and a Mexican father. At thirteen years of age, she started taking singing lessons. After relocating internationally and exploring a career in acting, Sol returned to her original passion of singing and songwriting. Fans are glad she did, judging by the success of her debut radio single 'I'm Here To Stay' which features an eclectic mix of acoustic strings, modern electronica and seductive vintage vocals. There is an undefinable quality about this talented, multicultural singer-songwriter that comes through in her music. Perhaps it is this subtle mystery, embodied in her sound and lyrics, that has got fans from all over intrigued. Reporter Blake Wright recently caught up with Sol to learn more about this new artist and what secrets she may yet choose to reveal.

BLAKE: When did you first discover your love of music?
SOL: Since I was very small, I've loved to sing, create and dance.

BLAKE: Your song 'I'm Here to Stay' has been a big hit on radio for its third straight month. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on radio?
SOL: I was like OMG! That's amazing! Thank you!!

BLAKE: What was the inspiration behind ‘I'm Here to Stay’? Was there someone in particular you had in mind when you wrote it?
SOL: My inspiration behind this song was feeling like sometimes life and love just won't work, as much as you would like it to, and the struggles of trying to make it work. Lol, yeah it was about someone in particular ;)

BLAKE: Would you say that the mood of your other songs is in the same vein as 'I'm Here to Stay'?
SOL: Right now I'm finishing a new song that is in the same vein as I'm Here to Stay :)

BLAKE: How would you characterize yourself as a musician? (ex. Down-to-earth, serious, fun-loving...)
SOL: Hmm hard-working, very headstrong and very driven.

BLAKE: Some of your listeners are wondering if a music video for this song is on the horizon. What can we tell them? 
SOL: Yeah! I'm working on it and I'm planning to shoot it in Switzerland, probably this summer.

BLAKE: What do you find most rewarding about being a musician? What do you find most challenging?
SOL: Rewarding- that people can engage and feel the emotions that I want to convey. Challenging- I guess singing live ;) I'm very nervous before a show but once I start singing, the nervousness just disappears like magic.

BLAKE: Who are your role models in music?
SOL: Hmm, Celine Dion, Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, Whitney Huston and Janis Joplin.

BLAKE: What advice would you give to young, aspiring musicians out there who are unsure and need guidance?
SOL : Perseverence and overall persistence are the key. It's your life so get out there and do it!

BLAKE: What's next for Sol Romero? Is there a follow-up single in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it?
SOL: Yeah :)! I just finished a cover from Amy Winehouse. I’m almost done with another song that’s like ‘I'm Here to Stay, music videos and much more <3

BLAKE: I look forward to hearing it! Thanks for taking time out to share your story with me. I wish you continued success and good luck!
