One of the leaders of indie and underground rock, Dex Romweber has been doing it for nearly 30 years. He’s kind of a singer/ songwriter that’s one part crooner, one part roots rocker and totally unpredictable. He follows his muse and does his own thing; whether it contains the Jerry Lee Lewis fervor of “Tomorrow’s Taking Baby Away,” the twisted film noir essence of an instrumental like “Nightide” or his near virtuosic piano work on the Charlie Chaplin classic “Smile.” In fact, in addition to vocals, he plays nearly all the instruments on the album and writes many of the songs.
