Ed Romanoff is a chronicler of American experience whose voice recalls the gritty baritone of Leonard Cohen and the wit of Guy Clark, the New York singer-songwriter pens wise, big-hearted, occasionally whimsical, usually melancholic tunes about lonely souls and romantic dreamers.
Ed Romanoff’s second album The Orphan King (Feb 23) was produced by Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes) and includes contributions from Rachael Yamagata, Kenneth Pattengale of the Milk Carton Kids, guitarist Cindy Cashdollar and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, along with Larry’s wife and duo partner, Teresa Williams. Together, they forged rootsy and eccentric arrangements for Romanoff’s gritty, literate and personal songs that evoke a gothic car chase across some mythic American plain.
The Orphan King debuted at #2 on European Americana Chart and #14 on Roots Music Report Chart, Weekly Top 50 Americana Country Album Chart!
PopMatters called his track “Less Broken Now “a gorgeous song…[with] truly heavenly harmonies that lift the song to greatness.”
Winner of the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition and the Nashville Songwriters Song of the Year.
“Romanoff may be a late bloomer, but it’s obvious his talent has been lurking for a long time…” – PopMatters
