Daniel Romano recently announced a new album for release in January of 2013 called Come Cry With Me. Did you know he was formerly in Attack in Black? Well anwyays, now he writes twangy country tunes about loneliness and heart break. Here’s a song Romano wrote, about a friend.
“‘Middle Child’ is about a good childhood friend of mine, Bruce. He told this story to me drunkenly one night a few years ago in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where I just happened to run into him. Before that night I thought his mother was his birth mother. Turns out he was the middle of three children and was the only one to be abandoned and given up for adoption. He was able to track down his mother at age 25 only to discover she had just passed away from a rare heart disease he also has. During that time, he was in and out of jail and rehab a lot. I’m happy to say he has cleaned up his act since then and has built a good relationship with his real father who is a carpenter in Wawa, Ontario.” – Daniel Romano
