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

by

danielromano_OneTimeAskin-Cover In 2013 maakte de Canadees Daniel Romano met Come Cry With Me een van de beste country-CD’s van deze eeuw. De nieuwe Gram Parsons (of Dwight Yoakam) was geboren. Niet te overtreffen. Nu is er If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ en die is, tegen alle logica in, echt nog beter. Iets gevariëerder, soms wat folkier, hier en daar zwaar georkestreerd. Gebleven is de ingetogen snik in de stem van Romano. En als schrijver is hij gegroeid. Als je hem in Old Fires Die hoort zingen: ‘I get more happiness from a bottle/And get more love from a stranger’, dan weet je genoeg. Wat een prachtige treurigheid. If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ zou wel eens de beste CD van 2015 kunnen zijn. As a result of Romano’s immense artistic growth and a testament to the hard work he put in touring behind his 2013 LP, Come Cry With Me, released on New West’s emerging artist imprint Normaltown Records, his fourth album, If I’m Only One Time Askin’, is receiving its release on New West, making him the labelmate of such celebrated songwriters as Steve Earle, John Hiatt and alumni Kris Kristofferson and Warren Zevon. Come Cry With Me was longlisted for Canada’s Polaris Music Prize, received a Juno Awards nomination for Roots & Traditional Solo Album Of The Year and garnered praise from hardcore traditionalists to tastemakers like Aquarium Drunkard and Brooklyn Vegan, who declared: “the sounds are clearly indebted to old sounds, but they also sound refreshingly new, and are some of the better country ballads to be written in recent times.” Robert Christgau, the “Dean of American Rock Critics,” took note and wrote that Romano had “a voice that’s sometimes so deep it serves as its own mournful echo chamber.” Exclaim said, “a record this sturdy in composition and delivery has the resilience to stand up to countless plays, and that timeless ache for a good, hard cry.” danielromano-Photo-by-Vanessa-Heins Tracks 1.
