MP3 Bryan Gorsira - New World
A mix of rock and country, sounding at times like Dan Fogleburg and Van Morrison, at times like Rascal Flats or Keith Urban, with lyrics that evoke gritty images, but show vulnerability at the same time. A nice blend

50 YEARS OLD!!!! What’s with that?
Not sure how I got here, but there it is. As part of a tribute to that age mark, (and to allow myself at least one mid-life crises) I decided to make a cd of some of the music I have written in the past 30 years of plucking, fluting and croaking. Really am not much of a performer, (a wildlife biologist by day) but did do some coffee house stuff with a roommate during my hippie college phase, “Thick as a Brick”, “Moon Dance”, “John Barleycorn” you get the idea, and some open mic stuff here in Virginia. The cd, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending on your opinion) does not include any of my fluting. (visit my web site for some of that) And, to cheat even more, 11 of the songs were done via Demos by Mail. Tom Manche in Nashville did some nice producing and recording of my music, and on most of those tracks a fellow named John Adams did the singing. A very sweet voice!!! It’s a very strange experience; to let your baby’s go into someone else’s hands. Sometimes I was pleasantly surprised, sometimes I was shocked; what did he do to my song?! But overall, although somewhat different than what I would have done, the result is certainly much more professional than I could have done, and I am happy with all.
The other 5 songs, quite clearly, were not done by Tom and company. On these you get the pleasure of hearing me sloppily pluck my guitar and croak my way though some songs. Sometimes ok, sometimes not, https://www.tradebit.comt could I do?…I was out of money! Plus, it just didn’t seem quite right to have a cd of my music entirely performed by someone else.
Over all, I have to say, I think it is a pleasant cd. Some nice songs, some not so nice, some mediocre; covered all the territory, as much as my talent would allow.
And so, give it a listen. Enjoy.
