Some songs are like paintings. They can linger and then when you return to them, they can be even more impressive than you remembered. These are special cases where the work transcends its time and place. Fair is fair, we all know that we don’t come across songs from this category too often, but when we do, we better hold on to them tight and make them part of our lives. We suggest you do just that with “Romance” by Jacob D. Edward.
It’s a staggering song on multiple levels, but what blows us away most is that it is a debut single by an incredibly young songwriter with an old soul that reminds us of big impact songwriters like Jason Molina and Damien Jurado.
