On this episode of Kiler Davenport Live I am going to interview Ed Roman:

Right out of the gate, with his freshman release in 2000, Special Ed and The Musically

Challenged, Ed Roman defined his paradigm with inventive, infectious tunes that shook

one's marrow and stirred the spirit…This guy is unique! Three follow-up releases with

SEMC continued to mesmerize and astonish, with music that both kissed and prodded,

seduced and challenged, hypnotized and enlightened...

In May 2011, Ed released his solo venture, Oracles and Ice Cream, and has never looked

back. It is 22 tracks that are an amazing marvel of songwriting wizardry, prodigious

performances and contagious energy, with the mystery and magic of a lucid, tantalizing

dream. The music both traverses and convenes broad music styles into the consummate

collective of penetrating rhythms and canyon-wide harmonic explorations, glazed with

lyrics that are both poignant and whimsical.

Now, in 2014, with Letters from High Latitudes, (an homage to his Ontario, Canada

home) Ed Roman has done it again, creating an earthy, funky and magical mix of music

to seduce the listeners’ ears! An accomplished musician, Ed performs 90 percent of the

instruments on his album, recording drums, bass, guitars, organ, vocals and even sitar!

The sound is rounded out with help from some of the top Canadian session musicians

like Dave Patel on drums (Sass Jordan) and Mike Freedman on electric guitars (Tia

Brazda.) Sit back, get mellow and listen to this truly skillful musician weave a tapestry of

enchantment from an eclectic fabric of musical styles.

Ed Roman's marvelous musings drop dollops of tasteful delight through our ears to our hearts. You can't help but dance. You can't help but smile.
