Daniel Romano – Modern Pressure

Daniel Romano will release his seventh solo album in as many years this week via his own You’ve Changed Records in Canada and New West elsewhere; the prolific singer-songwriter continues to surprise and delight listeners in equal measure with each new release and this one is no exception.

His latest offering is the most eclectic yet and one that takes the listener on a postmodern genre meandering ride, weaving together elements of country suffused retro-rock, indie and psychedelia.

Modern Pressure represents his most accomplished recording to-date, a sum of it’s parts, writing playing and production, for me it’s one of 2017 benchmark recordings – highly recommended.


“’Roya’ is a celebration of women. Roya’ is to represent the femininity in nature and the universal She. This is a devotional memoir pertaining to the strength, endurance, spirit, and godlike gravity of our mothers, sisters, lovers, and friends.”

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

Romano.Daniel_OneTimeAskin-Cover
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.
