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’ 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 (Dylan’s Time Out Of Mind), The E Street Band’s Cindy Mizelle, 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.
“A great sense of melody and lyrical style…. brilliant!- Larry Campbell
“Soul Piercing and revealing.”- Rachel Yamagata
