Pipo Romero, is a gifted composer and acoustic guitarist from Cádiz, a beautiful city south of Andalusia
One of Spain’s busiest session guitarists and producers, Pipo has recorded and toured with the country’s
biggest names. Pipo's true passion was realized when he discovered a new way of playing the acoustic guitar. Critics and
journalists have labeled it "Spanish Acoustic Fingerstyle" and it brings together the musical influences of
Pipo’s childhood, the carnivals of Cadiz and a pastiche of folkloric influences from around the world.
Pipo’s first album “Folklórico” was released worldwide in September 2017 by Legacy Label (Sony Music
Spain) and is receiving excellent reviews, including El País, the most respected newspaper in Spain. The
album immediately climbed to the top ten of WMCE (World Music Charts Europe, Nov 2017). “Folklórico”
comes from the heart. It is a compendium of musical styles which blend seamlessly, creating Pipo’s unique
and original sound. The result is a delightfully innovative and eclectic album that offers captivating
soundscapes beyond the realm of instrumental acoustic guitar.
Pipo Romero has been performing his music internationally to enthusiastic audiences. He performed at the
Barcelona Guitar Festival, “Los Matinales del País” in Madrid (Spain’s most important concert series), as well
as concerts in the EU and North America. Early in 2018, Pipo was featured on the cover of Fingerstyle Guitar
Journal with an extensive interview naming him one of the most promising artists of the acoustic guitar
world. His growing international recognition led him to share the stage with pioneering legends of the
acoustic guitar Don Ross and Pierre Bensusan.
Luthier Michael Greenfield (Canada), a world reference in handcrafted guitars, is working with Pipo as one of
his touring artists. This partnership between guitarmaker and artist has resulted in Pipo performing on a
guitar with the perfect voice for his music.
Pipo’s second Album "Ideario" (Universal Music) is due to be released in October 2018.
