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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

With Stanley and Watson, sound isn't elementary Those aware of the late Owsley "Bear" Stanley likely know him for one of two reasons - his pioneering work manufacturing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in San Francisco during the mid-to-late 1960s and his role as an innovative sound engineer. Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album CD review - The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»
