Roman Madrolle (born 16 April 1980, in France) is a French singer-songwriter who released his debut album in 2009. Any Place But Home mirrors Roman's life experiences: his family and early age expatriation are strong influences in his work.
In 2005, he joined the One Voice project, a charity compilation album for the reconstruction of Hurricane Katrina-devastated schools. His song, The Pain Within her Heart obtained critical acclaim. The song will later be reused on his debut album.
The production of Any Place but Home and the music video for The House of the Rising Sun is completed before the turn of 2007.
The album release was supported by live shows in several landmark venues in Brussels: Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels (BOZAR), Orangerie of the Botanique, Ancienne Belgique alongside notable shows in support of Arno Hintjens, Johnny Winter, Jacques Stotzem and Bjorn Berge.
