Great Album: Daniel Romano – If I’ve only one time askin’

“George Jones sang about the old country legends; «You know this old world is full of singers, but just a few are chosen to tear your heart out when they sing.» Daniel Romano is one of the chosen.”
– Jan Eiesland (Dust of Daylight)

“I just want to make it as good as it was, that’s the only real goal, the difference between Taylor Swift and what I do is like the difference between The Bourne Identity and Hud: It’s too slow, too black-and-white, too much dialogue. They’re like, ‘When’s someone going to shoot someone in the face?’ ”
– Daniel Romano

If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ is a triumph, a massive step forward musically and lyrically, this is pure country music done by a man that loves it.  Daniel Romano plays like there is no bro-country, like there is no pop-country, he pours his heart out into classic country song writing. This album should be Daniel Romano’s big break-trough album. We love it.
