Review by: Justyn Brodsky
Ed Roman, an Award-Winning singer-songwriter & multi instrumentalist from Shelbourne, Ontario, Canada, brings a very eclectic, vibrant, and jammy sound to the table with some astonishing vocal delivery. If you’re into Alternative with some energetic Roots-Rock, Roman is your draft pick.
With some artist influences that range from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paul Simon, and Bob Marley, there is a swell concoction stirred up with some intelligent and diligently original ingredients that makes Ed Roman stand out. His title track “Red Omen” gives off a Rusted Roots kinda groove, but with a much more powerful vocal delivery. His charisma is impossible to go unnoticed and his voice is very clean, well-polished, and like a train…rams right into some of the most versatile and natural vocal harmonies this genre could ever ask for. The percussion drives this song forward very dynamically and perhaps puts the rest of the players into their best atmosphere, keeping them at the top of their game at all times. The musicianship is an amazement that ensures a faultless outcome for themselves, and the foreground for Ed Roman to bring out the vocal power.
Once again, same thing for the song “Tough Cookie”. Powerful, unforgettable story-telling vocals that captivate the body and soul of any listener. A great tempo from a very gifted drummer, and a great craft of performance from Roman‘s cast of characters. “Tough Cookie” is a tough song to get out of your head.
Ed Roman‘s uniquely crafted songs have received critical acclaim and regular rotation on more than 100 terrestrial radio stations across North America and more than 400 stations Worldwide. He was a 2014 Artists Music Guild Award Nominee, won the 2014 International Music & Entertainment Association Award, a 2-time IMEA Award Nominee in 2015, a 2015 and 2016 Josie Show Awards Nominee, an Akademia Awards Winner, and a 2-time Indie Music Channel Award Winner.
This kind of recognition deemed his enormously growing fan-base as “Ed Heads”; and when you take a listen to Red Omen yourself and see what all the hype’s about, you’ll be one too! Artist Reach approved. Hands down!
