Interview With Ed Roman 2016


Ed Roman is an Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist from Shelburne, Ontario, Canada. Blurring the lines between pop, rock, folk, reggae and country music genres, Ed’s uniquely crafted songs have received regular rotation on more than 100 AM/FM stations across North America and more than 400 stations, worldwide.

Ed is a 2014 Artists Music Guild Award Nominee, a 2014 International Music and Entertainment Association Award Winner, a two-time 2015 IMEA Award nominee, a Josie Show Awards nominee, an Akademia Awards Winner, and a twotime Indie Music Channel Award winner.

Ed has performed at the Red Gorilla Music Fest during SXSW, The Millennium Music Conference, and SS Cape May, and he has toured both New York City and Philly. In 2015, this Top 100 and #1 Reverbnation artist traveled to Jamaica to deliver much-needed humanitarian aid to the island, while shooting the music video for “Jamaica.”

Ed is also a Heart Songs for Veterans artist, donating money to help veterans with his single and Top 10 video, “Lay One Down.” His last album, Letters From High (an homage to his Ontario home) was a critically-acclaimed vehicle for Ed’s sociopolitical, earthly-conscious and globally-aware messages.

Now, Ed has returned with a brand new album, Red Omen, produced with renowned producer, Michael Jack. The album, featuring the first single and video, “I Am Love,” is out June 7, 2016.
