Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist Ed Roman blurs the lines between pop, rock, folk, and country music genres with his uniquely crafted songs. The Shelburne, Ontario native has received regular rotation on more than 100 terrestrial radio stations across North America and more than 600 stations worldwide.
Ed was featured as an “Emerging Artist” in Billboard Magazine in December 2018. The animated music video for the Top 20 iTunes charting song, “Red Omen” has been shown at numerous film festivals around the globe, earning accolades and raising funds for a cause near and dear to Ed’s heart, Whole Dyslexic Foundation. Along with being an accomplished musician, Roman is also a gentleman farmer, gardener and paranormal enthusiast. All of which must add interesting perspectives to his craft. Ed’s single, “Stronger” was released in January 2020 on MTS Records and the song raced onto the iTunes Canada Pop charts. September 2020 saw the release of Ed’s new single “Tomorrow is Today”.
“Tomorrow is Today” begins with a classic and invigorating drumbeat, then joined by a super cool and beautifully simple riff played in unison by the bass and guitars. The mood is badass, tight and darkly casual. The vocals have a heavy bluesy rock n’ roll feel to them, adding soul and attitude to the groove while an electric guitar snaps a funky rhythm right into the pocket. The sound grows larger and larger as he heads into the chorus. The melody goes from tough and cool to moving and thoughtful, layers of melodic instrumentation flow over the chord progression before snapping back into the tight main riff that will get every head in the room bobbing.
Lyrically, Ed gives phrases full of inspiration and reflective thoughts, telling some of his story and the things he has learned, all delivered with a mountain of passion and style. Mixing the traditional, retro and modern, a wailing synth solo explodes over the shuffling funky beat. As the song progresses, more and more layers and sounds subtly make their presence known, all of a sudden you find yourself surrounded by interesting tones and noises, all working perfectly with that original drum beat. A beat that began so simple has now fluently progressed into a massive wall of sound. The song is full of groove and swagger. Coupled with the relatable and honest lyrics, it has a very unique and cool atmosphere. The tune leaves you thinking and reminding you of the message with the phrase “Yesterdays gone, tomorrow is today”.
