Rommel Zeledon— Romeo at the Keyboard

Text by Claire Baiz • Photography by Marcus Serrano

Passion–and some steamy Latin dance moves–are evident in Zeledon’s body language as he performs onstage.

Don’t be flattered if Rommel Zeledon writes a song about you. “It’s never a good thing,” he says. Though this passionate Florida native is inspired by emotional turmoil, his music is perfect for romance or a meditative interlude.

Zeledon, who works in nuclear security with the U.S. Air Force, is enjoying his stint in Montana: “The first time I saw snow I took off my shirt and jumped in it. I don’t do that any more, but I still love snow.” “Snowboarding,” he gulps, recalling his first attempt at Showdown last winter, “…not so much.”

You can find Zeledon’s compositions on his Facebook page, ‘Nova Celeste Resurrected’, or listen in person at venues around Great Falls.
