Roberto Mighty’s Brazilian acoustic guitar playing and singing are influenced by Joe Pass, Al Jarreau, Jose Feliciano, Jimi Hendrix and Nat King Cole.
He uses jazz orchestral dynamics to emphasize sensuality, chord changes, poetic lyrics and complex melodies of standards and originals.
After ten years as a successful writer & producer of music for radio, TV and film, Roberto is thrilled to play live with partner Kathryn Howell.
As an Equity actress who has performed throughout New England, and with diverse musical roots, Kathryn Howell’s love for words, music and performance combine to create lyrically and emotionally rich music and Spoken Word pieces. Add to that a remarkable vocal range and a deeply passionate connection with her partner Roberto Mighty, and you have emotionally powerful musical experiences for audiences wherever they perform.
