Legends Of Country are a band formed by Jof Owen from indie pop group The Boy Least Likely To. Inspired by a long standing love of country music and memories of growing up watching Pebble Mill and listening to Johnny Cash and George Hamilton IV. With dobro guitars, pedal steel and mariachi trumpets blasting away, their songs combine a classic earthy country sound with an honest and unmistakeable English indie pop charm.

Daniel Ramono’s fourth long-player If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ is set for release on New West later this month, the follow-up to his acclaimed 2013 album Come Cry With Me released on New West imprint Normaltown Records. The forthcoming album sees Daniel continuing to mine the rich-seam of country music traditionalism with a contemporary collection of songs echoing the greatness of Williams, Parsons, Jones and Haggard – but ensuring the music is very much his own with a self proclaimed genre
“Mosey music is a study in contrasts,” Romano says. “There’s glitz and grit, reveling and wallowing, wretchedness and showmanship. Mosey music’s pioneers wore their battered hearts on sequined sleeves.”
The album was recorded in Daniel’s hometown of Welland, Ontario, and self-produced, amongst the many highlights there’s a lovely collaboration with Beat Surrender favourite Caitlin Rose on Strange Faces. For those lamenting the bro-country takeover of the genre there’s much to admire and hang your hat on with Daniel’s lyricism, arrangements and neotraditional styling, classic – in every sense of the word.

For my fellow European inhabitants, there is a festival in France I am playing next week (American Journeys in Cambrai, France) and I will be back in the UK in July. It’s not official yet but Scandinavia is in the pipes for November.
