Romantica

The self proclaimed “folk, americana, pop band” hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota by way of Belfast, Ireland is made up of singer/songwriter Ben Kyle, along with Luke Jacobs, Tony Zaccardi, and James Orvis.

Why the name Romantica: According to singer/songwriter Ben Kyle, “I really liked the sound of the word, I liked the depth of the word, too, and the multiplicity of meanings. It sounds foreign and familiar. It has a gravity and seriousness about it (like the passion and sincerity of the Romantic movement), but it also feels light and there’s maybe a hint of jest.”
