You won't hear a more open hearted, impassioned and lyrically rich roots album this year.


Thematically If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ is a triumph, a massive step forward that finds Romano pushing himself both in terms musical and lyrical, looking to get to the booze-soaked heart of country music.


I've Only One Time Askin' shows the Americana scene is still bearing strong fruit North of the Border, and with any luck, Daniel Romano won't end up as a perennial cult figure like Robbie Fulks.

The Line of Best Fit

Like all great Country records, Romano’s is cathartic - your heart aches for him and with him - and it is this emotive sway that makes the record a success.
