Pharis and Jason Romero are pure craftspeople ……. top-notch instrumentalists, striking singers and compelling songwriters. They’ve won three Juno awards and seven Canadian Folk Music Awards, connecting with audiences through their music, lifestyle, and the sense of joy and laughter from this small-town renaissance couple. They live in the wilderness town of Horsefly, British Columbia where they write songs, study old music, and work as renowned banjo builders J. Romero Banjos.
Their newest record Tell ‘Em You Were Gold was released on venerable folk label Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in June 2022. Made in an old barn Pharis & Jason spent years slowly restoring, and recorded in six days by a wood stove under northern lights, it’s a testament to the musical value and significance of their work. It’s built around the beauty of their banjos and the pair’s deep psychic and artistic connection, with conviction and delicacy – and stunning singing. They play their own songs with the traditional music they have always sung, weaving guests John Reischman, Grace Forrest, Trent Freeman, Patrick Metzger and Marc Jenkins on mandolin, fiddle, bass and pedal steel between the duo and solo pieces. Their songs seem to come from easy and honest places about traveling, rural life, and mountain air, but in their spaciousness they are deeply moving, giving each listener room for a unique and personal experience.
