CD reviews for Daniel Romano

Mosey CD review - Mosey
With "Mosey," Ontario-based singer/songwriter Daniel Romano reveals himself to be something of a musical chameleon. Even Romano's appearance has transformed from the rhinestone suit and cowboy hat of 2013's "Come Cry With Me" to a hipster Bob Dylan/Art Garfunkel look on the cover of this release. On previous efforts, Romano displayed his reverence and aptitude for traditional country. Here the retro '60s sound is based primarily in the country/pop of Lee »»»
If the Only One Time Askin' CD review - If the Only One Time Askin'
Daniel Romano does not look very happy on the cover of his latest. The Canadian looks forlorn, sadness oozing as he peers into the distance with a cigarette hanging from his mouth. No wonder Romano is sad as the lead-off honky tonkin' countrypolitan "I'm Gonna Teach You." With a full-fledged baritone, often reminiscent of Robbie Fulks and Charlie Rich (his hit making countrypolitan side), Romano indicates there's going to payback for the guy who took advantage of his girl. »»»
Come Cry With Me CD review - Come Cry With Me
Daniel Romano's reverence for vintage country music is evident in the album art to his latest release, which features Romano wearing a Rhinestone outfit and graphics that recall some of Porter Wagoners 1960s album covers. The influence of Gram Parsons is strong on such tunes as Middle Child, the sad tale of a boy given up for adoption ("You sent me off and then you went and had my brothers/Before me, a little girl/And they're the center of your world/Mama tell my why'd you »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
Concert Review: Rawlings easily moves out of the shadow – Every once in awhile David Rawlings moves out of the shadow of musical mate Gillian Welch to launch his own tour. While Welch, for whom Rawlings plays guitar, has the more prominent career, nights like this ably confirm that there is a reason does his own thing as well. Rawlings, who released the very fine "Poor David's Almanack" in... »»»

From A Room: Volume 2 CD review - From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards.  »»»
Down Home Sessions EP CD review - Down Home Sessions EP

Upon first glance at the track list of Cole Swindell's fourth installment of the "Down Home Sessions" series, one may get the impression that it is a covers EP. It features several chart toppers from other artists, including Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" and Thomas Rhett's "Get Me Some Of That." »»»
