Daniel Romano is a Canadian Juno-nominated musician, poet and visual artist based out of Welland, Ontario, where he was born and raised.
Sleep Beneath the Willow may have just solidified Daniel Romano as a class-act songwriter, musician, and producer. The album followed on the heels of his "folk you" criticism of the music business in Working for the Music Man. It can also be seen as a huge departure from his previous gig as a member of the Canadian rock band, Attack in Black, but, in all actuality, it has been a natural and easy transition.
It is a collection of timeless and polished country songs with late 60's, AM country arrangements influenced by such artists as Lee Hazelwood and George Jones. The album is founded on genuine honky-tonk instrumentation – banjo, fiddle, acoustic and electric guitar – and great harmonies provided by Misha Bower (The Bruce Peninsula), Tamara Lindeman (The Weather Station), and Lisa Bozikovic.
