Stenographer is a budding collaboration between two long-time friends and musical partners, Rocco DeRosa and Elizabeth Vaughan. Formerly of Boston-based indie rock group The Naked Stills, Rocco met Elizabeth (formerly of precisely zero bands) at an open mic in 2012 and they soon began performing together in Do I Do, a wedding band still gigging in high gear to this day. After years of belting out covers at raucous receptions, Rocco finally convinced a very timid Elizabeth to record an EP of her originals (optimistically titled Start With These Words). As the recording process unfolded, so too did a mutual enthusiasm for co-creating. Many shows and studio hours later, Rocco and Elizabeth are excited to present their eponymous debut EP, Stenographer, slated for release in late June 2018. Born of a shared love of RnB, Jazz, classic rock, and folk, and infused with probably way too many feelings, these songs are their own form of musical stenography, melodic shorthand for love and loss. Hopefully they’re just the first of many to come.
