Pharis and Jason Romero bring vibrant duet singing with guitars and hand-crafted banjos from their Horsefly, BC home. They move from spacious, almost ethereal, old time folk songs to powerful country blues, with stories, an easy rapor, and a feeling that you’ve known them a long time.
There is a similar feeling to be found in listening to Pharis & Jason Romero that one encounters when looking at an old photograph. It is as though their music taps into something larger than us, and reminds us of where we came from. However, the beauty and perfection of their music is not to be found only in the revival and connection to all that once was, but also in the sense of future potential and contemporary insight they offer. The Romeros have created musical offerings that both confirm the roots of music long past and point the way to where folk music is going today.
