If you browse the inevitable arguing below one of country singer Daniel Romanos many YouTube videos, youll notice a reference to Tom Pettys recent quote about todays country music being like bad rock with a fiddle. The YouTube commenters point: Romano aint modern country.
The Canadian performs mosey croonin and hard-luck storytelling, and its so old-school that its hard to tell if hes entirely serious.
Ultimately, it doesnt matter. Romano opening at Boise band Calicos EP release party Oct. 5 is a cool talent.
