Daniel Romano – If I’ve Only One Time Askin’

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.

Daniel Romano – Sleep Beneath the Willow (You’ve Changed Records 2011)


I didn’t make the connection immediately but after reading a short bio on Daniel Romano it clicked where I’d heard the name before, he was one third of the acoustic folk Daniel, Fred and Julie who released an album back in 2009 that collected a lot of positive reviews on net, I never got around to getting that album but collected a pair of mp3’s that had got lost and forgotten in my digital library – I aim to remedy this when my eMusic account tops up next month, along with checking out Romano’s solo debut.

I digress a little because I’m supposed to be telling you a little about Mr. Romano and his solo album Sleep Beneath the Willow, released on You’ve Changed Records which he co-runs with Steven Lambke the album was recorded to two inch tape in Romano’s home studio in Ontaria, the man himself plays most of the instruments on the album as well as handling production and engineering – so it’s a real labour of love and that’s reflected in the music a vinyl friendly 11 track 40 minute album it’s a retro-country troubadour styled treat that’s a real pleasure to listen to, definite shades of Gram Parsons on the album which can never be a bad thing as well as some sweet harmonising provided Misha Bower, Lisa Bozikovic and Tamara Lindeman.
