With his new Trillium White Frank Brothers electric guitar in hand, Daniel Romano is taking on the world, one show at a time.
Daniel Romano has got to be one of the coolest and most prolific artists out there right now. His new album Modern Pressure made the long list for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize and his extensive tour has taken him across the US, Canada and now Europe.
As long-time fans of his music, we couldn’t be more excited to have him endorsing Frank Brothers Guitar Co.
If you haven’t yet checked out Daniel Romano, it’s definitely time. Here is a little background info on him, how we first connected, news on his tour and some info on his brand new Trillium White guitar.
A Modern Day Renaissance Man
Daniel Romano is a songwriter, singer, guitar player, producer, independent record label owner, visual artist, graphic designer, and leather craftsman. Yes, all of those things are true!

He is the co-founder of You’ve Changed Records along with Steve Lambke, of the Constantines. Daniel is also known for his graphic design including concert posters, album covers, and recently some Frank Brothers t-shirts (pick yours up today!).
Daniel Romano's Custom-Built Frank Brothers Guitar in All New Trillium White
We first met Daniel as fans and appreciators of his music. He’s a regular on our shop playlist and when he took notice of our guitars he decided to come by our shop for a visit. Since then his hands seem magnetically attracted to his Frank Brothers guitar!
Daniel also has a very special and unique Frank Brothers guitar that he custom ordered.
The Trillium White Signature Model features an opaque smokey white finish over the maple top, along with a naturally beautiful mahogany core and back.
Daniel requested that the guitar look like it had lived inside a cigarette, so we shot a vintage amber clear coat over the entire guitar to give it it the look of an old Fender that had been played in smokey bar rooms back in the ‘50s and’60s. He's called it the worlds most playable guitar.
This custom setup is now available to order.
