Ed Roman – Happiness
Written by Kevin Tanza on February 24, 2022
Ed Roman is an award-winning songwriter and musician whose body of work has been player in over 600 radio stations all over the world and was widely regarded as an emerging artist by Billboard Magazine back in December of 2018, so we are talking about a musician that has shown a lot of promise and the success of one of his previous songs, Red Omen, is a great example of that.
Happiness is one of his newest singles and I have to say that it shows the charisma in his voice and in his songwriting.
I don’t know if it’s the keyboards or the vocal melodies, but on this track I can hear some resemblance in his voice to the legendary Rock singer, Sammy Hagar of Montrose and Van Halen fame. Regardless, it is a very strong vocal performance in the sense that it has hooks, swagger and personality, which is extremely important when it comes to singing because you can have a great voice, but that is not enough to convey emotions with people.
Overall, it is a very upbeat song with a nice message, a very minimalistic approach to songwriting in terms of how the instruments have been used and the song grows and grows until becoming really effective and powerful on the second half of it.
It’s a very good sample of what Ed Roman can provide as a songwriter and the song has a lot of hooks, so it is going to stay in your mind after just one listen. Definitely worth checking out.
