Featuring our very own Joe Romano and Susan Elliott

August 20th, 2014 by AFM Houston

Check out the article from The Houston Press:

Joe Romano and Susan Elliott Andy Eng via Mood Indigo Facebook

Mood Indigo
For something both low-key and impossibly wonderful, you’ll want the vocal jazz-duo stylings of Susan Elliott and Joe Romano. It’s like Bobby McFerrin meets Paul Simon, but with just enough rhythm to keep it moving like a dance. Mood Indigo approaches what they do with moderation and an eye for whimsy, and that’s what makes them so engaging.
