Ed Romanoff is the CEO of PineRock, a $20MM marketing agency based in NY. PineRock produces videos and live events. Ed has presented at industry events on marketing, branding, and creativity, while also producing keynote speakers and headline entertainers including Bill Clinton, George Burns, Jay Leno, Dana Carvey, and Jimmy Buffett. Despite Ed’s rewarding role as CEO, his passion for songwriting had been unfulfilled until ten years ago, when he met the folk legend, Mary Gauthier. Ed and Gauthier soon attended a songwriting clinic and eventually collaborated on a song together. Following the release of his debut album, Ed was a Troubadour Finalist at The Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2013, and later that year joined Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, and James McMurtry as a winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition based on songwriting and storytelling. Ed has performed in 13 countries as a solo artist and has opened for Mary Gauthier, Rachael Yamagata, and Robert Earl Keen.
