Over the years we’ve seen music slowly erode into something quite disturbing. Morph back to a happier time when you will find carefree acting as the embodiment of a carefree society. Music these day, though very technically savvy is missing something. Instead you get bands or artists that act in a very overcompensating way trying to prove how sick & shocking they are. At the end of they day it’s really just a publicity stunt meant to get your attention & hold it for more than 1 minute. Talking to many music fans out there, the response is overwhelming. Good music is now replaced with gossip antics & an overly Synthetic Power Pop format having many people saying — the magic of music is gone. Give me something that isn’t over the top, something that is fun, & entertaining. But above all give me substance.
So across my desk slides the latest CD by Bryan Gorsira entitled So Far. What I heard put a smile on my face, finally an artist with substance. Gorsira is some of the best new music I’ve heard in quite some time & delivering many of the aforementioned items I spoke about. You want good playing, you want rock, & R&B that is packed to the hilt with a feel good vibe? Well look no further. This CD covers all the bases delivering solid playing & amazing songwriting & a musical flair that takes us back to a more carefree time.
So Far by Bryan Gorsira & company is a breath of fresh air & it’s what we’ve all been waiting for. It’s a polished sounding musical production from start to finish served up hot with great playing, solid writing, & a feel good vibe that will lift your spirits without even trying. Favorite pieces are “Give me a Day“ & “Carry Me” It’s definitely a musical production that gives us a glimpse of what music was meant to do — make us happy not sad & depressed.
