Roman Reese is a singer/songwriter born in Nashville who has since lived in Austin, TX, was stationed in Baghdad (took his guitar with him, too), came to his own in Knoxville, TN, and is currently on the prowl in Washington D.C. It’s been a long journey. His release, “Gritty City,” is aptly titled. When you pull off the shrinkwrap, you might be able to shake some of the desert sand out of the insert… It sounds as if the grit is actually in his voice, which has grown even more harried lately. There’s more bourbon and blood in this set of 16 all acoustic, Americana tracks that range from ballads about Army Nurses and the ghosts they refuse to let go, to bar-room romps where there is never enough gin to go around, to heartbreak and heartache, human emotions far too familiar to us all.
